The best stories reveal something about the storyteller, either directly or indirectly. Your personal narrative lives in every one of your images, and every photograph you make reveals something about you.
In this new online workshop, Leanne Trivett S. presents a safe and supportive environment that promotes inspiration and creativity. By trying new approaches, practicing with personal objects, working with still life, and experimenting with faceless portraits, participants uncover the passion and cultivate the vulnerability to tell their stories.
We start by photographing our world, discovering how we can choose to make images with intentionality or simply allow for serendipity. Class time features lectures about artists, reviews of participant work, and individual creativity coaching. Through assignments and group sharing, Leanne offers feedback and guides participants as we photograph what is important to us and test the tools and techniques that bring forward our narrative.
Photographers of all levels are welcome. Only a small amount of technical proficiency is required: experience in digital workflow, confidence operating your camera of choice, and ability to select, download, and submit images. An open mind is a bonus!
As we emerge from behind the camera and take a journey towards magic and mystery, we see soul in each image and breathe life into each self-portrait. Join Leanne and uncover the specific ways that you exist in every photograph you take.
Participants need a working knowledge of digital workflow and how to fully operate their camera of choice. Any type of camera is welcome. Participants must be able to download and select images for class sessions. This workshop is more about creativity and less about software. It is helpful to know Adobe Lightroom and Mobile Lightroom, but not required.
Class will meet 9:30 am – 12:00 pm (Mountain Time) on Wednesdays starting November 8 and ending December 13; no class on November 22 (five online group sessions). Enrollment is limited to 12 participants.
Zoom Video Conferencing software (available for no charge from Zoom.com) will be used to facilitate the class sessions. Further details will be emailed to registrants.
Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.
For the convenience of participants, recordings of each class session are posted privately for one month after the end of each session. Santa Fe Workshops takes the recordings down after one month to protect the intellectual property of our instructors.
