Immerse yourself into the world of art with inspirational lectures and have your own photos critiqued by a photography master!
In this full-day seminar plus critique session, you’ll learn that the beauty, emotion and versatility expressed through photography are matched only by the limits of your imagination. Using art history as a reference point, the seminar highlights common visual elements, from shape and space to texture and light, and shows you how to apply them to enhance your own compositions.
Having this one on one experience will not only change the way you photograph but will also change the way you look at the world around you.
