Join Hunt’s Photo Education as we help grow your knowledge, creativity, and artistic expression with our expanded Personal Vision Series. These classes are designed to provide you time, opportunity, and guidance in shaping your creative photographic voice. We will give an overview on a specific topic in an online class session, then give you time to go into the field by yourself (or with someone else, if you choose) to complete an assignment based on that topic. We will reconvene a few days later for an online image review to discuss elements of your images.
The Personal Vision Series is a crossroads of many different ideas that we offer with Hunt’s Photo Education: Topic-based instruction/classes, Photo Walks, & Image Reviews. However, unlike a Photo Walk where we will all take a certain direction, for the ?Walk? portion, you will be asked to journey out on your own to photograph. This will cause you to be the driving force of your creativity and vision!
This month?s topic is “Hometown Portraits”. Creating portraits of people is a shared, mutual exchange of energy, ideas, and purpose. Creating portraits of people in their natural environment on the street, at work, or just being themselves anywhere requires less equipment than studio portraits and is far more informal, yet is still a powerful form of artistic, creative, and documentary expression. Our hometown is familiar and comfortable to us, as are many of the people that are neighbors, own the local gas station, work at the nearby gym, or walk their dog every day. This comfort makes for a great cushion as we delve into creating environmental portraits of people. Join us for an exploration of creating environmental portraits in our hometown.
We will have an instructional online presentation on the first date and will reconvene for our Image Review on the second date. You will have that time period in between to photograph and edit our assignment. Your personal creative voice is critical to your growth as a photographer and as an artist. Join us for to help grow that voice!
