The Poetry Of Black and White
Robert Stahl, Instructor
Dates: September 13th-15th, 2019 (9am-4pm)
Materials Fee: $0
This workshop in Black & White photography will emphasize the cultivation of a poetic eye. Accordingly, an interpretive style will be advocated. And to reinforce this approach a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of composition and design will be provided as we consider the role of line, shape, texture, and depth along with light and time. Field excursions with the instructor will be conducted in Coupeville & vicinity. These field sessions will provide an opportunity for classroom evaluation. As well, one on one sessions with instructor Robert Stahl will be available to review material brought to the workshop (digital files and/or prints). Come join us for this stimulating workshop on the art of seeing deeply in Black and White.
