Workshop 2:
Conrad Kuiper - Kickstart Your Creative Eye

Digital photography has made it easy and quick to take a large number of images. Unfortunately, this can also make us lazy and even impatient, leading us to move too quickly through our surroundings, and also often causing us to prefer to "fix it in post". Conrad's session will help participants to compose more carefully and deliberately by offering strategies to "see with purpose". He will emphasize techniques to slow down, "read" a scene, and to give more thought to composition. The same strategies will also lead to a deeper appreciation of the world around us. After the opening presentation and instructions, participants will have the opportunity to put the ideas into practice at the Bayfield River Flats. Here, there will be possibilities for landscape, bird, insect, wildflower, and macro photography.
 Bayfield River Flats - Bayfield

Elizabeth van den Broeck - Post Processing & Printing

Debra Friedman - Portrait Photography 

Debra will discuss approaches and strategies for creating photographic portraits that go beyond the everyday. The workshop will start with a brief introduction of Debra's work which will include a discussion of how she engages with her subjects, her use of light, and some camera techniques specific to the portrait. Participants will look at elements and attitudes of the photographic portrait including posture, gesture, costume, expression, composition, and the quality of light. The lion’s share of the workshop will involve participants creating, showing, and discussing portraits they produce.
LOCATION: Lions Building - Bayfield

B.D. Colen - Photography in the Public Space

Whether you are an accomplished street photographer, or have never photographed a stranger without asking permission - and wonder what that might be like, B.D. Colen’s workshop, Documenting Lives Lived In Public, is for you. B.D. will begin with a brief lecture and introduction to some of the great street photographers - discussing your rights as a photographer, the ethics of photographing in public, what you shouldn’t shoot, and how to photograph discretely in public. (It’s worth noting that over the course of 13 years photographing strangers in Boston’s subway system, B.D. was only confronted by someone once.) Following the brief lecture period, B.D. will take you into the main square of Goderich to document life lived in public there.
LOCATION: Goderich Library start - Goderich
