2 Day Workshop: Symbolic Photography


Description: Symbolism has been used throughout different periods of art: Surrealism, the Renaissance, etc. Conceptual photographers often reflect on how an item can add meaning and depth to their photographs by what the item represents.  This workshop is a crash course in learning about plants, fruits, animals and many more items that hold certain meaning within the art world. This workshop is 2 full days of learning about symbolism and creating photographs that hold deep meaning. If you wish to heighten your conceptual photography sense, I highly recommend this workshop. Models will be provided for students who wish to use human figures. We will also create prints; students will have a variety of methods to choose from when producing prints. (See other workshops for some of the ways you will be able to produce prints)


Techniques guaranteed to be taught, but not limited to, are the following:

-       Learning about Symbolism.

-       Working with still life’s.

-       Working with models.

-       Creating unique fine art prints.


Breakfast and lunch is included.
