What is a flower—and what could it be? Open your mind to see the possibilities. With a background in theatre, photographer Leanne Trivett S. knows how to create dynamic stories, and she invites you to let your imagination run wild and push your botanical images farther than ever before.
By taking innovative approaches to art, you can liberate yourself and connect to your creative voice. Together we experiment with our images and write about them. As we tap into our emotions, we consider color and objects to add to our work. In-class time is spent on lectures about inspiring artists, reviews of participant work, and individual coaching. During weekly assignments and group sharing, Leanne offers feedback to guide each participant.
Because this workshop’s overarching goal is to try out new ideas and add new ways of thinking to our practice, only a small amount of technical proficiency is required—namely, experience in digital workflow, confidence operating your camera of choice, and ability to select and download images.
As you create unique images utilizing different techniques, you take your art to new heights. The flower is the actor, you are the director, and the world is your stage. Join Leanne and discover how to give dramatic voice to your botanical images.
Working knowledge of digital workflow and manual mode on your digital SLR or mirrorless camera. Participants must be able to download and select images using image editing software for class sessions. Apple iPhone users with digital workflow knowledge are also welcome.
Class will meet 12:30 – 2:30 pm (Mountain Time) on Tuesdays and Fridays starting February 20 and ending March 8 (six 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.
