Stretching Your Frame of Mind
with Joe Baraban
July 17 - July 20, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.


Imagine yourself standing at some location with a stretched canvas on an easel by your side. In your hand is an artist's palette. Instead of the various blues, greens, reds, yellows, and brown pigments, however, it contains the elements of visual design and composition.

As a photographer, you are most definitely a visual artist, with a camera on a tripod replacing the easel and canvas. Line, negative space, vanishing point, balance, pattern, texture, shape, form, tension, perspective, color and—most importantly—light rest on your palette, waiting to be combined. These components of design have been around since the Renaissance, and for four days Joe shows you how to incorporate them into your photographic thought process.

We study examples of Joe’s work and notice how they bring together design elements. We also explore the difference between taking pictures and making images. Then you are given the opportunity to incorporate this knowledge into your own assignments, which we discuss as a group.
You leave with your own personal design-oriented artist's palette and a newly developed eye to see these elements as they exist in the world. Together, they can take your imagery to a place it has never been before.
