Join Arthur Meyerson for a compelling and intensive online workshop designed to heighten your awareness of color and increase your ability to successfully capture distinctive moments with your camera.
Through daily shooting assignments, critiques and discussions, participants acquire techniques to become more sensitive to light and its effects on color, composition, texture, pattern and design. While covering the use and quality of natural and artificial light, the main focus is on investigating color from a personal point of view. Arthur guides and inspires participants to help refine an individual style for creative fulfillment.
Utilizing Zoom as our platform, the workshop begins with a review of each participant’s images and a discussion of personal goals. Each day from 11:00am(EDT) to 1:00PM(ish) the group will convene for critiques, conversations, lectures and slideshows followed by an assignment for the day. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons Arthur will schedule 20 minute one-on-one sessions with each participant to discuss their work and goals in photography.
While this is an online class, the materials and information presented are the same as those Arthur utilizes in his in-person class. However, participants will have the advantage of photographing in their familiar surroundings.
Leica Akademie USA Director Tom A. Smith will support the workshop throughout the week to assist in assignment, software and technical questions.
Participants complete the week with a greater awareness of their strengths and an enhanced sensitivity to light and color.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Both amateur and professional photographers who wish to strengthen their ability to see and work in color.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
Using a Leica camera is not required. You should have basic understanding of camera controls and digital workflow.
A limited number of Leica cameras are available for you to use, by request during the workshop. (Loans are available on a first come, first served basis.)
Enrollment for this Master Class is limited to only 9 participants.
