Bringing Your Images to Life
Epson Print Academy
This course is about establishing what images mean to you, and you the photographer being in control and producing work that connects and strikes a chord in you. We are all inspired by the work of other photographers both professional and amateur, but if we compare our work to those practitioners, does it deliver the same message or have the same ‘voice’, impact? More importantly, we must ask ourselves why we like the work so much.
Given the success of our online courses in recent years, we have been reflecting on how much we, and all the photographers that we have worked with, had enjoyed their time. Until now, much of what we have taught has been based on how to process and interpret images, from a raw camera file to finished fine art print. Although looking at these processes is hugely important to achieving a high quality output, it explores little about the photographer themselves.
Almost all of the photographers we have worked with over the years are pursuing a certain ‘look’ in their work, they want their images to have that ‘feel’ and essence about them. It may be darkly printed black and white images, or images that lift your spirits and raise a smile in the viewer. Either way, you must strive to make images consistence and in line with your visual signature, and this is what this new online workshop is all about.
Developing Style and Vision is all about you and working with you to develop your personal style. We will begin with Paul Gallagher and Michael Pilkington taking you on their own personal journeys of discovery and the many stages of them discovering their visual signatures. As we all learn from each other, there will be online discussion sessions on what inspires you and what you would like your work to look like, how you would like to connect to it emotionally.
This is not all about adjustment sliders and dialogue boxes, but about the impact of your work and how you can make it individual to you. It is always truly enlightening to move on from techniques to the narrative in the photograph, after all, as photographers we are all trying to communicate visually.
You will be set tasks that will encourage you to go away and explore how your work will evolve and flourish through self reflection. Regular catch up online sessions will be held to discuss progress and share ideas on how further development can be harnessed and Paul and Michael will be there throughout your journey to help you nurture your personal style with individual one to one sessions.
