Kim Westerskov Workshop
See images in Kim’s latest newsletter.
We’d all like some magic – and/or “soul” – in our photos.
Sure, we all take normal or “real” photos, but most of us also want to take or create photos with that something extra that sets them apart from the rest, something that gives them an emotional or personal connection, that makes you smile or makes other people go “Wow!” Images that stay in your mind and heart.
The ones you want to hang on your wall.
But how to get such photos?
That’s what this somewhat unusual workshop will explore. I’ve only ever run this workshop once before, back in 2014, and it was the best-attended workshop to date – full house!
“So why haven’t you run it since then, Kim?”
I’m not sure, but in August I’ll run it for a second time. This is the least technical workshop of the many I run, but possibly the most important. There won’t be much about f-stops, aperture, or histograms – but there will be a lot about what makes GREAT photos.
We will examine in detail several important topics, each closely related to the others:
** Great photography, powerful photography. What it is. How to achieve it.
** Soul and emotion in photography.
** “Seeing” photos – “how to see the photographic possibilities in what’s in front of me?”
** Creativity. What it is and how to tap into it.
** Atmosphere/mood in photography. This will include some technical stuff, but not too much
Part 1: Saturday 7th August 9.00 -5.00 pm. Workshop
Part 2: Assignment – in your own time over 3-4 weeks.
Part 3: Evaluation and critiquing of your photos. We meet again for a few hours at a time that suits everybody.
Cost: Full course fee [which includes workshop, follow-up, hand-outs, and yummy catering] $295 [or $245
Early Bird – if booked by 28 July]. Full-time students with ID $145.
