From the earliest days of our lives, we are bombarded with imagery that leaves lasting and cumulative impressions in the mind’s eye. Paintings, sculptures, photographs, movies, advertising, cartoons, and many other visual stimuli combine to present us with imaginative solutions for picturing the world and our experiences within it. As you evolve as a photographer, the most inspirational of these impressions become a wellspring of creativity to draw upon, so long as you are able to work with these sources constructively. This session will explore the many ways in which you can channel sources of inspiration in creating your own, unique photographs.
What you will learn:
- Where to find inspiration
- How to analyze what you see to identify the compositional and stylistic traits that interest you
- How to “make it your own” in the field and in post-processing
