This six-week workshop will explore and test the characteristics and conditions that create varied qualities of natural light in photographs. You will learn to observe, perceive, and communicate the psychology of light in order to create mood, meaning, and impact within your images. Assignments, lectures, slide presentations, and critique will emphasize awareness and the use of natural light to reveal the complexities of both emotion and time as expressed in the still image. You will establish a strong aesthetic and technical foundation, including basic camera operation and creating good exposures.
