A Photograph…captures a moment, an essence, a vision, a memory. It reveals the soul of the subject but more the soul of the person behind the camera. It is one of the strongest mediums to tell a story, and in recent years, it has become the most accessible, democratic form of art and expression.
Today, particularily through social media we are overwhelmed with visual diaries. Windows into the souls of our sisters, friends, celebrities and even pets. This was not the case 25 years ago when smartphones didnt exist. Photography was different. Every frame mattered in an age when camera live views didnt exist and film rolls were expensive to develop.
On Saturday February 22nd and Sunday February 23rd, I will be hosting a workshop that will go back to the way we photographed. With meaning, intention and purpose. Through elements such as props, light, angles, composition, botanicals and editing, the simplest food or subject can be transformed into an opulent visual story. Learn to stand out from the ever growing saturated crowd of “photographers” and tell your unique narrative. To photograph the soul of your subject as if it were your own through today’s looking glass; the camera.
