Visual Storytelling
with Norman Mauskopf
October 12 - October 15, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

"Norman was delightful. He shared his personal experiences which made me connect with his view of photography." Ana Paula Eddy, former workshop participant

The key to a successful photographic presentation lies in an artfully designed sequence of images that takes the viewer on a visual, emotional, and intellectual journey. In this workshop we explore the elements that go into creating powerful sequences and stories.

Using class critiques, lectures, visual presentations, books, and his own rich experience, Norman creates a sequence of learning. We learn how to combine and flow disparate images such as landscapes, street photography, nature, architecture, objects, and portraits. We discover how to establish a mood and pace in order to build subtle visual, emotional, and intellectual concepts into a multi-layered sequence. And we learn how to include text and music where appropriate, and how to use design and formal elements as well as subject matter to relate pictures to one another. In addition to photographic storytelling, we discuss artistic and technical matters related to crafting strong individual images while photographing, rather than spending time using post-processing techniques to manipulate your images.

Each day, participants photograph people, places, things, and events in Santa Fe, or in its surrounding communities. Daily individual critiques focus on editing each day’s work, and incorporating the work into an evolving sequence suitable for a variety of formats such as a book, portfolio, slideshow, or exhibition.
