Creative Expression through Abstract Photography (CVPS Workshop) | Courtyard by Marriott Akron Stow | jueves, 16. abril 2020

Join the Cuyahoga Valley Photographic Society for a creative workshop with photographer and artist Eileen Rafferty to expand your photographic skills and vision.
In this workshop, we will examine the world of Abstract Photography.  What is it?  How do we approach it - as a maker or viewer?  Abstract image-making encourages moving beyond routine seeing to produce dynamic, interesting photographs.   It can also be a way to push yourself creatively. 
During the workshop, Eileen will cover important historical and contemporary photographers for inspiration while exploring a myriad of methods for making abstract photographs, including focus, perspective, and framing.
The Workshop will also include shooting assignments, lectures, and constructive critiques to practice and hone our abstract seeing in camera and through post-processing.  Eileen will guide and encourage you in discovering the exciting world of Abstract Photography!
