Identity and Narrative Photography with Linda Troeller
In this workshop, we
will explore personal ways of visual storytelling. You will develop your
narrative photography by focusing on things you are truly devoted to, that are
in-tune with your identity.
Through self-portraiture and portraits of colleagues you
will ‘open up’ your sensitivity to enhance your vision. We will critique/discuss
six jpgs from each persons’ recent project or valued images you will bring.
The second week’s theme is on ‘place’ in our rapidly
changing contemporary life. What is intimate space? communal space? global
space? At this point, each person commits to shoot their unique point of view. My
assignments will accelerate techniques, and group photo walks will result in
expressive, atmospheric images.
During the final week,
we will go through the editing phase - the hardest area for many photographers
to master. One-on-one meetings narrow shoots into compelling ’stories’.
Throughout the workshop, we will look at and discuss photo
books you brought with you. We may also listen to music for inspiration.

1. Digital camera you are acquainted
Computer with photo editing software like iPhoto or similar
