Perhaps you would like to see a photograph of your dog go viral? Or perhaps you recognize in your dog a subject for a very interesting photograph? Or, you just want to create wonderful photographs of your dog and how she/he engages the world.
Whatever your interest, this workshop will speak to the dog as subject matter. In the first session, Nancy LeVine, the photographer from, 'A Dog’s Book of Truths' and ‘Senior Dogs Across America’ will share her experiences and acquired knowledge of the dog as an exemplary subject for simple or complex imagery. Nancy will bring her own dogs to photograph, each with very distinct personalities, and talk about how to find their visual presence. She will review up to 5 photographs you choose to bring from your ‘dog collection,’ (if you want to bring some to the workshop). After the first session, students will be given an assignment that will meet your specific challenges in photographing the dog world.
The second session will involve reviewing up to 5 photographs that best showcase your efforts and we will discuss your experiences.
**Note: you don’t have to own a dog of your own to participate in this workshop**
