Self Exploration in Your Images – a New Workshop : May 4 & 5, 2019

“Photography is a journey, I don’t have to figure it all out today, it is movement, it is love, it is life. It is my process.”

How do we expose AND express our feelings, emotions and thoughts in our images? I have spent the past year working on a new project of mine: The Invisible Story. I am learning so much about self exposure and self expression through this new body of work. Yes, it is about being vulnerable, courageous and being brave.
 
I hope you will join me at my new loft in Providence Rhode Island for this exciting workshop on self exploration.  Bring a group of 20 images and a notebook. We will be going deep into your work and creating a structure for your intentions and goals. We will be looking at images and creating clarity and structure around your projects. Saturday evening, I am calling it ART SALON evening, having the flavor of the artist salons in France during the turn of the century. BYOB.  Shelley, who many of you know is my tech partner, will join us and be available for infrared and non infrared questions.

Sessions will be: 10:00 – 7:00 Saturday and 10:00 – 4:00 Sunday.

Bonus: Includes a 30 minute follow up Skype with Laurie, to be used within a month of the workshop.

Cape Cod for Infrared and Non-Infrared Photographers: June 5 – 9, 2019

 

For some, Cape Cod is all about lathering on the sunscreen and wading into the waves of the Atlantic. For others, it’s eating boiled lobster while looking out onto the eclectic street scenes of Provincetown. Still others find their magic standing on the soaring sand dunes of the 43,500 acres of Cape Cod National Seashore watching a humpback whale breach in the distance.  Join Laurie Klein and Shelley Vandegrift, the Invisible Story Team,  to experience and capture the beauty this land, shaped by wind and ocean currents, offers. We will begin each day with discussion and critique sessions after which we will venture out to photograph the dunes, marshes, beaches, harbors, seals and other wildlife, and colonial architecture.  Evenings can be spent in Provincetown dining, shopping and people watching.

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Provincetown Inn which is conveniently located in north Provincetown on Cape Cod bay adjacent to the marshes and beaches.  Excellent public transportation is available from the front of the hotel to Provincetown for evening entertainment. The workshop cost includes a whale watching tour and a 4-wheel drive tour of the dunes. Not included in the price are transportation to Cape Cod, hotel, and meals.

Creative Infrared Photography: Capture to Print: August 19 – 23, 2019

With infrared photography, it’s important to learn the rules so you can go out and break them, and over five comprehensive days renowned IR specialist Laurie Klein shows you how to do just that. Under her guidance, participants train their eyes to pre-visualize the qualities of IR: how it records heat and how it interprets the visible spectrum, especially regarding foliage, vegetation, people, clothing, buildings, and lighting situations.

In daily outdoor visits to the field, we photograph nature, landscapes, structures, and models while exploring the art of emotive storytelling. On the more technical side, we discuss white balance and the camera settings necessary for strong capture. Shelley Vandegrift, Laurie’s longtime collaborator, provides technical information for capture as well as helping each student develop a personalized workflow incorporating numerous post-production techniques.

Each day we engage in group critiques as well as one-on-one time with Laurie, who facilitates your process of finding and strengthening your own infrared visual voice. Throughout, each participant develops a personalized workflow and gets comfortable utilizing different post-production methods. At the end of the week, we print selected IR images produced during the workshop in the Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab.

This workshop is open to those just entering the world of infrared as well as anyone wishing to up their game and create more dramatic IR photographs. Please bring a converted IR camera.

Come with an open, curious mind, ready to learn the secrets of great infrared photography, and leave with a new set of skills for making unforgettable images!
