This workshop uses the Stratham Fair as its subject. We will meet in the morning of the 20th and look over everyone's previous work. This will give us a sense of student's experience to date, and also an idea of what everyone wants to accomplish during the weekend. In the afternoon we head out to the fairgrounds and photograph. If possible, students should stay and work into the evening to maximize their efforts. In the morning of the 21st, we will edit and informally critique each student's work. In the afternoon we will present our choices to the class and do a group critique. There will be ample time throughout to ask questions about anything photographic - from technique to putting work out into the "world."
Tuition does not include the Stratham Fair entrance fee.
Tickets to the Stratham Fair are not provided in the tuition cost of this workshop. Student's must purchase their own ticket.
