Join Brenda Tharp and Lou Nettelhorst for an inspiring, informational and interactive session and learn to see patterns and abstracts that arise from incorporating the elements of visual design. Whether natural or general subjects, applying visual design concepts when photographing can add impact to your photographs. With staying close to home, this class will inspire you to see creatively right where you are. Through a joint presentation, Lou and Brenda will lay the foundation of good design, and take it further to help you see and photograph patterns and abstracts that can arise from incorporating design in your pictures. We’ll also discuss the importance of light, and how the elements of design are utilized in creating intimate landscapes. We’ve built in a mid-session exercise and an opportunity to share your results online, along with ample time for Q&A.
What you will learn:
- Learn key elements of design and their importance
- See and use the light you have
- Apply design concepts through practice
- Gain insight and inspiration from shared mid-session assignment photographs
Gear needed: Any camera/lens combination will do. Be prepared to photograph mid-session either inside or outside in the area close to your home.
