Photography as Art Workshop

In today’s camera club world, much attention is given to hardware, software and technical advances. Sadly, little attention is given to photography as art.

This Photography as Art Workshop will be in two sessions. The first session will be a Keynote digital presentation that covers what is art with definitions and criteria. An assignment will be given to each participant to produce for the second session three matted prints that he/she considers to be art and tell us why. The second session will be the presentation and group discussion of the three images. The objective of this workshop is to encourage participants to strive for art before and when the shutter is pressed and to see and take photographs that are more artistic than usual camera club photography.  Session one is Saturday, October 5 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Session two is Saturday, November 2 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The cost for the two sessions is $50. Please make registration check payable to JM Center, 4811 Catharpin Road, Gainesville, VA 20155.

Early registration is encouraged as seating is limited to allow group participation. For further information contact Joseph Miller, email: furnfoto@aol.com, cell phone: 703-593-7598.
