Right now, I am announcing my own photography mentorship program - "Building An Image with ". This is the second time I have ran this mentorship and while the first had bumps due to a family loss, I am super excited about trying this again.
Sharing this post is highly encouraged, but please disable comments so people will go to the original post.
This will be a 6-week program, working on design elements of a photograph that will make you "FEEL", which to me, is the single most important job a photograph can do. Make emotion.
If you would like to participate in a highly interactive, community-based learning project, then please read on and APPLY!
will be taking on a handful of people for a special mentorship program called "Building An Image". This mentorship is designed to help you learn, search for, and apply design elements of a photograph to bring forth the emotions that make images memorable. It will focus on rules and when to break them as well as elements such as color and when not to use it, patterns, lines, shapes, etc.
This course is NOT how to use your camera, but IS how to see and build and image with the camera and skills you already have. I will be happy to give some guidance on technical aspects as it relates to the weekly lessons, but I will not be focusing on f-stops and apertures.
Up to 5 photographers will be selected for a 6-week on-line apprenticeship program which will include lessons, assignments, Google hangouts are possible, and informal discussions are encouraged. Mainly, the goal is for everyone to have fun, collaborate, and learn from each other.
Selections will be announced on Friday, July 10th for the mentorship which will begin within days of the announcement of selected mentorees.
Selection criteria will include:
• You should be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You have little previous art studies, as this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity to add this skill set to their knowledge base.
• You should be taking and posting photographs regularly. (The class itself will be private to the group except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end.) You may publicly post your own achievements and I encourage it!!
