The workshop will explore the importance of still life photography in history and how participants can use symbolism to convey concepts and other important issues. Participants will learn the principles of lighting, composition, and color, and how to use tools and techniques to elevate the quality of their photographs to achieve the best possible image. To amplify thinking and seeing, participants will be exposed to contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst and Yayoi Kusama who use objects and are renowned for their provocative artwork.
