Workshops 26 – PHOTOTexas in Austin

This hands on workshop focuses

on exploring individual narratives

through the power of

photography. Using metaphor,

symbolism and personal stories,

participants articulate or

refine their visions. Our images

are deeply rooted in personal

emotion despite being self-created

or found scenarios. The

goal is for the artist to become

emotionally connected to each image and to convey their

vision in a true, honest and consistent manner.

Participants will explore their own personal narratives, aesthetics

and psychology in image making. Through practical

demonstrations, creative exercises, group discussions, brief

shooting assignments and portfolio reviews, participants

are encouraged and inspired to grow to the next plateau.

Additional discussions will include, long term project

development, techniques, editing portfolios, marketing,

publishing and exhibition.

page, a Group page, or a Page. Know their

rules for publishing images on Facebook. Twitter

– what can it do for you in 140 characters?

Linked-In – is more of a business network. You-

Tube – showcasing your videos or slideshows

– hoping they go viral. iTunes – it's just cool to

be on iTunes and it's free. All of these are free.

08. Kirk Tuck – Austin

A Minimalist Approach to Lighting

One-day. Sun 8:30a-4:30p

Our workshop will focus on theories and techniques

of lighting that lend themselves to creating

great, lit images with small, battery powered

flashes. We'll look at ways to make small lighting

look big and ways to mix the ambient light

with small strobes flash.

The class will consist of examples and case studies

followed by demos. When you leave this class

you will be comfortable using your small flashes

to get the same results pro's get while using tons

of "professional" lighting equipment.

If weather permits, one component of the class

will be how to handle outdoor lighting with

small flashes. In this segment we'll use silks,

scrims, blockers and nets to modify the prevailing

light and "condition" it so that our flashes can

be used effectively.

and photography, including the bestselling,

Precision Digital Negatives

alternative photographic processes. Utilizing the

techniques of PDN, the user avoids guesswork,

test strips, dodging/burning, filters and other

darkroom image adjustments. Every workflow

variable is taken into account (photographic process,

coating, paper, inks, light source, climate,

etc.) to ensure consistent, predictable results and

provide optimal user control. PDN’s software,

Curve Calculator II and the PDN eBook will be

available for purchase. I will introduce you to

PDN, its working methodologies and advantages

as well as share print examples.

find their prints wanting: prints don't

taught at the K2 Press, Inc., studio to demo printing

with color and dedicated grayscale inksets.

Childhood: An International

Photo Exhibition

Juried by: Jamie Lee Curtis

Entries due October 02

Jamie Lee Curtis is an actress, children’s book

author, activist, photographer and collector.

Ms. Curtis said about the exhibit, “Childhood

is fleeting – yet sometimes, in a fraction of a

second, photographers can capture its essence:

joy, pain, play, boredom, frustration, elation.

As an author of children’s books I have tried

to capture what it feels like to be a child – the

good and the bad – and to stimulate a dialogue

between children and parents regarding the

issues raised in the book. I hope to see creative

work that captures childhood's many guises.”

International Student Photography


Juried by Lucian Perkins

Entries due: October 26

Open to All Students of all ages working in all

mediums of photography.

Lucian Perkins, is a two-time Pulitzer Prize

winner. Mr. Perkins said, "As a photojournalist/documentary

photographer what interests

me most about photography is its unique

ability to freeze a moment in time and reveal

something within that instance, be it a 500th

or even two seconds. When you document

humanity, that moment can unveil emotions

that exist within all of us whether it be one of

joy, sorrow, anxiety, anger, boredom, ecstasy,

frustration, hope, loneliness, resentment, vulnerability

and a whole hosts of others.”

Our Town: Odessa
