“Holistic Photography: Finding Yourself in Your Art”
A photograph is the result of a three-way connection between the photographer, subject, and viewer. You can try to be objective but there will always be a part of yourself in your photos. You will inevitably bring your feelings, past experiences, and pre-conceived ideas to the relationship with your subject. From that relationship your own distinctive style eventually emerges.
This workshop is about identifying your signature style, learning where it comes from and how to use it. We will also discuss ways to get yourself into a mental state that allows the best of yourself to shine in your art. As National Geographic photographer, Sam Abell, once said, “Who we are is the most important thing about photography”. This two and a half hour class, held at the Albuquerque Photographers’ Gallery, is geared toward intermediate to advanced photographers who have been photographing long enough for a style to emerge. Participants should bring 8-10 prints of their favorite photos for in-depth evaluation.
