LEARNING TO SEE by Christopher Morris
Date : 1-4 March, 2019
Application Deadline : 5 February 2019
How to create a personal style is one of the often talked about issues in contemporary photography. To define and separate your vision in a very crowed industry has always been extremely challenging. I will set you on a path to help with this. By exposing the group to what I feel are the common mistakes that many working photographers are making today. While highlighting the successes of what makes a photograph stand the test of time. To find the jewels and masterpieces in your work.
I will expose the group to the different forms of photojournalism that are prevalent today. We will discuss everything from ethics to creative photographic styles.
