Join me in a conversation about what makes a photograph special. I will use his images around the world to explore and understand visual perception issues, the way how we see it, and examine visual principles that help photographers to create photos that stimulate the viewers. By covering the different genres of his photography, he will discuss basic design and composition concepts, and the difference between individual perceptions, and also cover the key elements of photography (light color, shape, moment, opportunity, texture), talk about visual perception that apply not just to photographers but to anybody interested in any form of visual art.

This special workshop will include a Critique Session, allowing participants to see their photographs and other in new ways, define their vision, and discover new points of view. Any artist interested in the critique session should send three of their best images in advance – we will project some of these photos to stimulate discussion among the audience. I will evaluate and critique the images in a group environment and use his years of image making to discuss the visual perception, offer suggestions to the individual photographer, as well as the group.

Submission requirements: Please e-mail in advance to what you consider your best three pictures, in JPEG format, and high resolution.
