ICP Photography Workshop: The Personal Narrative – Photographing With Light, Style, and Intent

Producing work that is truly one’s own and developing a personal aesthetic is an ongoing process for any practicing photographer. This two-day workshop instructed by ICP Faculty Bastienne Schmidt is for students who would like to develop a more personal expression in their photographic work. Discussions address composition, media, lighting, print style, and emotional meaning in imagery, as well as the works of master photographers. Students complete exercises designed to develop a personal voice, hone their editing skills, and pinpoint the unique elements in their work. Each student receives assignments specifically related to his/her past work. Questions reflect upon the concept of photography and memory. We explore the relationship between photography, narrative, and personal memory.

In this two-hour, one-day workshop instructed by ICP Faculty Lynn Saville, students develop their power of observation to create stunning photographs at the beach in Southampton.
