Getting to Know the Landscape: A Shooting Intensive Experience
Photographer Tsar Fedorsky will host a workshop focusing on the interpretative landscape. The workshop will begin with an in-class meet at NESOP to present examples of their work and discuss issues and ideas in contemporary landscape photography. The purpose of this meeting is to get students thinking about what types of landscape photographs being made today and establish their goals for the shooting excursion. The following day the class will convene for a day of shooting together on the North Shore. The location will be specified at the first meeting and will be selected according to the weather conditions and the interests of the group. The following week, the class will regroup at NESOP to review work produced the previous week.
This course is suitable for any photographer, both film and digital formats welcome. Students are encouraged to get off the “auto” mode of their camera and in order to make more informed choices which leads to more controlled aesthetics. By workshop’s end, students will be comfortable using manual mode. In addition to equipment discussions (tripods and light meters will be discussed) we will engage in further discussions about black and white and color within the landscape.
