Sponsored with a generous gift of Moab’s premiere photographic printing paper, two seasoned instructors, Moab Master photographer Michael Zide, and fine art printing guru, Jim Roselli, will offer their expertise and insights on all aspects of photographic image making from digital capture through post production and printing. Combining their creative talents, Zide and Roselli will help you find the keys to making more powerful and expressive landscape photographs.
Giving voice to the landscape is rewarding and challenging. Without depending on human form and facial expression to create feeling or tell story, we need to “read” and interpret the body language of the natural world. Through the use of metaphor and gesture we can give life to the inanimate and weave natural elements together shaping their own narrative and emotional tone.
Intuition makes us stop and explore. Imagination lets us discover the unexpected. Post-processing and printing brings the raw capture to life. In a supportive class environment, you will share your work and discuss their decision making as the instructors add insight, encouragement and constructive critique. By examining each step in the process, we can learn to better match our creative impulses with our aesthetic and emotional intentions.
Look forward to getting up early, making wonderful photographs and exchanging ideas. We hope to see you in June!
