On Thursday, December 13 SRQ Photo School will be presenting a photography workshop at Selby Gardens in downtown Sarasota titled New Perspectives in Photography. There are still a few open spots and we would love to see you there.
Creating compelling photos is often difficult as viewers has become saturated with images or we tend shoot our favorite subjects in similar ways over and over. Sometimes it just takes changing your perspective. In this fast paced, three-hour workshop we’ll explore some techniques for creating very different looks to common subjects that in all probability you’ve shot before. You can use these techniques with almost any equipment and in most any location. You’ll be amazed at what a change in perspective can do for your photography.
Lecture will be short and notes will be handed out. We’ll visit shooting stations in the gardens to practice these techniques and recap back in the classroom at the end to share our experiences. Bring your camera of choice and an open mind to explore some new perspectives to your photography.
