Weekend Photo Composition and Critique Workshop in St. Louis

Instructor: Ben Long
Meet Ben Long for a weekend of composition practice in lovely St. Louis in this three-day intensive workshop. St. Louis is a city rich with history, architecture, and Mississippi River culture, which makes it an ideal laboratory for everything from landscape photography to street shooting. With its broad variety, St. Louis provides great opportunity for exploring many compositional challenges. Through lecture, one-on-one instruction and shooting, we’ll discuss and explore many compositional ideas and examples before going out to try them on the streets. Afterwards we’ll cover some important post-production skills and practices as we select images for group analysis. Online photo sharing sites and forums can be a nice way to get feedback on your images but virtual feedback is a poor substitute for actual in-person group critique and we’ll conduct two of these critiques during this workshop.
