“Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.” Ansel Adams
Visual Concepts: explore ideas as the first step towards creating composite images. Create your master plan for the image. Tips and tricks on lighting, perspective and backgrounds as you go about photographing the components; what to look for and consider. Kaye will lead each student through the process. Bring cameras and whatever lenses you have.
Compositing: covers Photoshop techniques used in compositing images so you can bring your idea and fine art piece together. Bring your laptop (or computer) and Kaye will both demonstrate and work with each student to bring their idea to reality.
The first day or so will involve photographing the various components for your creation, with the remaining days working inside on the computer (unless you need to reshoot) putting it all together. During the process there’ll also be opportunity for group critique, which enables ideas to be further developed.
Kaye’s own photographic work largely revolves around portraiture, illustrative and landscape photography, using the camera and “digital darkroom” as her artist’s canvas and choice of medium. She is an NZIPP Accredited Professional Photographer and Grand Master of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, and was awarded 2013 NZ Professional Photographer of the Year.
