Intensive: Authenticity—The Process of Photographic Creativity
with George DeWolfe
May 10 - May 12, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Authenticity is the single most important attribute a photographer can learn and possess. Not only is it a process of working from within, it can also eventually lead to the creation of the masterpiece. This workshop explores the perceptual and technical processes involved in authenticity.

Typically, photographers practice their craft without giving enough thought to vision, awareness, and the basic fundamental technical aspects that cause the effects they create. In contrast, the process of authenticity deals directly with the fundamentals of creating an image, by enabling photographers to work directly from their unique nature, rather than photographing derivatively.

George starts by reviewing the fundamentals of “photographic seeing,” and the skills necessary to accomplish it. Next, we examine the basic technical problems that hound us when we are making images, both in photographing a subject and in post-processing. Lastly, we study and practice a way to free ourselves from the concepts and styles of other photographers.

The simple answer to a creative life in photography is emptying yourself of all unnecessary impediments, and seeing the world as if only the wind had blown that way before. This two-and-a-half day intensive starts you toward accomplishing this goal by freeing you from entrenched rules of composition, foundational technical problems, and unproductive behaviors.
