About The Class

Instructor: Douglas Beasley

Medium: Photography

Workshop Title: The Emotional Landscape

Make a deeper, more authentic connection to your subject, and learn to express that through your photography. We will use land, sky, water, and self to transform an emotional experience into a visual one. We will give our photos deeper layers of meaning to make stronger, more powerful and memorable images. Fun, laughter, and introspection are to be expected. Intermediate level: participants should have a good working knowledge of their camera and editing software.

‘Making’ a photograph instead of ‘taking’ a photograph is about being deeply connected, if only for an instant, to your subject. It is about an ‘honoring’ of the subject through paying attention to its essence, rather than trying to ‘take’ something away from it.
