Course Description

Summer light has the transformative power to elevate any subject matter from mundane to magical. Regardless of where you are in the northern hemisphere, its distinctive hues and intensities are undeniably those of the season. This online workshop invites photographers to see, experience, and use light as never before, while discovering its potential to convey thought, emotion, and state of mind.

Through presentations and discussions, we identify examples of the different principles and properties of natural light at various times of day, from dawn to dusk, including temperature, direction, and quality. We also consider the emotional, psychological, and formal implications of these elements.

Class time is primarily devoted to critique, during which we evaluate the role of light in your images and review technical considerations. Short reading assignments amplify the course content and serve as a springboard for (and complement to) weekly photographic assignments. Throughout, Janelle offers practical solutions and general support.

You are encouraged to enjoy yourself as you engage in a process of experimentation. At the workshop’s end, each participant prepares a final presentation of images that celebrate a newly enhanced understanding and use of summer’s uniquely evocative light.

about
Janelle Lynch
Janelle Lynch is an artist renowned for her large-format photographs of the landscape. Throughout her 25-year career, she has steadfastly used the medium to investigate themes related to the lifecycle, connection, and transcendence in places she’s lived, including the United States, Mexico, and Spain. While Janelle’s practice has been primarily lens-based, it increasingly incorporates alternative processes. Her decision to use them, principally the cyanotype medium, is aligned with her conceptual inquiry as she is less concerned with replicating the world as she is in imagining the unseen through unmediated contact with natural elements, paper, and light.
Janelle’s photographs reside in major public and private collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the International Center of Photography, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Janelle has had several solo exhibitions, including at the Hudson River Museum, the Southeast Museum of Photography, and the Museo Archivo de la Fotografía, Mexico City. Notable group exhibitions include the Museum of the City of New York, and the Newark Museum, and the George Eastman Museum.
Janelle is the author of three monographs by Radius Books: Los Jardines de México (2010); Barcelona (2012); and Another Way of Looking at Love (2018). She is a faculty member at the International Center of Photography in New York and is represented by Flowers Gallery, London.
