Making a photographic image is at its core a human endeavor that involves creativity and personal involvement by the maker. In so doing, a part of yourself is expressed in your work. During this workshop, we will discuss the ideas and applications of creativity as applied to the art of photography. We will explore personal perspectives and expressions that can develop into your unique “photographic style”, including ways in which creativity can be blocked or encouraged.
