Art Works Offers Photography Workshop

The Berkeley Art Works will offer a new workshop taught by photographer Rip Smith entitled “Photographic Composition and Creative Vision.

Saturday October 11, 12:30-4:30; 4 hrs
Composition and Creative Vision Part One

What is it that makes one picture of a particular subject ordinary while another image of the same subject is a work of art? This workshop will explore how composition, light and shadow, form and texture can work together to express something beyond merely recording a scene. The workshop will start with a discussion of the basic concepts of composition and then, through an analysis of some of Smith’s images, will demonstrate how those concepts are applied in practice from conceptualizing the image in the viewfinder to the final adjustments on the computer.  Students who wish to move on to Part Two of the workshop will be given assignments to put the ideas and techniques into practice.

Saturday October 25, 1:30-4:30; 3 hrs)
Composition and Creative Vision Part Two

During the two week interval between part one and part two, Students will take their cameras out to practice the ideas and techniques discussed in Part One. They will bring in a selection of images for discussion and “gentle critique” during the second session.

Tuition: Parts 1 and 2 $90; Part 1 only $60 (Pre-Registration Required)

This workshop is offered by the Berkeley Arts Council and will be held at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg, WV. Pre-registration is required.
