IMAGINARIUM - LEARN THE SECRET OF CONCEPTUAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Instructor: 

Claire Rosen

Dates: 

Sep 6, 2017 - Sep 10, 2017

Location: 

SAGA – Inderøy - Norway

This advanced workshop covers the elements involved in creating conceptual thematic imagery from idea generation through execution. It is ideal for photographers who are comfortable with the technical aspects of their equipment and are looking to create staged narrative images taking their photography to the next level.

Students focus on brainstorming, concept development, and thinking outside the box when approaching visual storytelling. The course walks through step by step how to make your picture concept a reality through mood boards, production sheets, pre-production and scheduling; with lectures on how to source locations, props, and lighting theory; how to cast and work with subjects, as well as problemsolving, communication, and working e ciently on set or on location.

All participants will execute their own concept on the workshop, from idea to  finished image.
