Classic Photography
with Norman Mauskopf
March 27 - March 30, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Photographers often speak of being “in the moment” when photographing or, as Henri Cartier-Bresson so eloquently wrote, “It is putting one's head, one's eye, and one's heart on the same axis.” Yet as more automatic functions on cameras have replaced the skills once necessary to capture decisive moments as they happen, photographers are coming to rely on a “fix it later” mentality, relegating essential compositional, exposure, and lighting skills to camera and computer software.

Under Norman's guidance, you learn how to take photographs of people, events, places, and things, with emotional content supported by elegant design, in real time and with a minimum of post-production techniques.

Each day begins in the classroom with a critique of participant images followed by an afternoon photographing in the field. Critiques focus on the relationship between your images and what transpired between you, your camera, and your subject; the light and the environment; and what you thought you were photographing versus what you actually captured. Norman’s classroom sessions include an illustrated lecture showing how various historic and contemporary photographers have treated similar subjects.

Give yourself the classic gift of learning how to spend more time behind a camera and less time in front of a computer.
