with Caroline Jensen
3 WEEK WORKSHOP
$225 Full Participation | $112 Study Along
Use thoughtful COLOR to enhance storytelling images!
Storytelling with Color is an introduction to shooting and processing images with intentional color. This shooting-centered course focuses on not only using color, but understanding the more subtle nuances of understanding and interpreting color. Color is a language. It is embraced universally as a way to share a myriad of thoughts and feelings, but most people do not get beyond a basic understanding. We are here to explore and learn about the way color has been used historically, how our brains and eyes understand color, and how we can communicate more effectively with color. This course is here to stretch your imagination and comfort level with color experimentation. Let’s dive in!
Students should be comfortable using manual mode.
