Steve Scalone on Building a Body of Work in Urban Photography
Saturday 6 April and Saturday 13 April 2019, 10am—4pm
Follow acclaimed photographer Steve Scalone as he introduces a refreshing viewpoint on composition and anticipating the decisive moment in your photography.
Be prepared to rethink the way you view the environment around you and learn how to recognise compositional elements within any urban environment. Develop a better understanding of what it takes to shape an image well before you bring the camera up to your eye.
During the workshop you will create a narrative or body of work that illustrates one of the following pairs using composition and the decisive moment, aiming for three to five images to be presented.
• Near and Far
• Big and Small
• Light and Dark
• Colour and Shape
• Texture and Light
This workshop will include many practical components beginning with a photo walk to put into practice earlier discussions on composition. Steve will show examples of Lightroom post production techniques including a demonstration on importing, culling and enhancing a body of work, to complete your entire visual process. You will edit and enhance your images into a body of work that is not only visually appealing but also has a strong narrative. The workshops will conclude with a refined review of your series, printed throughout the week and presented for discussion on the final afternoon.
Perfect for street, urban and travel photography.
What You Will Need
• Your camera, batteries and camera cards
• Notepad, pens or your laptop/tablet
• (Optional) Your laptop with Lightroom CC
