Venue: Vermont College Campus
|Event Date/Time: Dec 13, 2002|
The Fine Art Portrait in the Landscape: B&W and Polaroid Transfer Exploration
Workshop leader: Annie Van Avery
Using the picturesque Vermont landscape, participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to combine two fine art subjects: portraiture and the environment. Annie Van Avery will show participants how to move out of the "studio lighting box" and into the environment to achieve stunning results with only a camera and reflector. A combination of black-and-white print film and color slides for Polaroid transfers will be used on field shoots with models. For more information on Polariod transfers, see www.polaroid.com or see work on the instructor's website. You may never go back inside!
Teaching, Communicating and Learning the Art of Seeing
Workshop leader: Carley Stevens-McLaughlin
This workshop serves a dual purpose, for educators seeking to learn more about teaching photography as a medium for self-expression and vision, and for those who would like to learn these techniques for themselves. Carley Stevens-McLaughlin offers an intuitive and constructive look at her mantra, anyone can be a photographer. She has a way of teaching the medium without creating any technical intimidation, stemming from her passion for photography as a social outreach tool, a means to self-confidence and an exploration of how one sees the world. Carley will also share her recent publication (see under Instructors and Presenters) and discuss her experiences as an educator and youth advocate.
The Brilliant Color Landscape
Workshop leader: Craig Line
This workshop is for photographers who want to develop a stronger sense of color, composition, exposure and technique in shooting color landscapes and nature photography. Craig Line and participants will discuss cameras, lenses and other equipment as well as films, light and exposure and aesthetic elements: compositional components, color, and capturing mood and emotion in the landscape. Craig will also show some of his own work to illustrate methods for group discussions.
Fine Art with the Plastic Camera
Workshop leader: Debra Sugarman
Throwing technical control out the window, Debra Sugarman will lead participants through the freeing process of picture taking with the Holga medium-format plastic camera. With its quirks, lens distortions, one-choice shutter speed, and primitive focusing capabilities, the plastic camera allows the photographer to focus on the artistic, creative side of photographing. This is a wonderful workshop for those professionals who want a break from the technical aspects of their medium, or for beginning photographers looking to explore the options. Debra makes picture taking a personal and original experience which you will be able to take home with you, along with your new Holga camera.
