Limited Capacity seats available

Of all the stories you tell with your camera, the story of your own family might be the most meaningful. We are our own personal historians, so how can we tell our story in an authentic and meaningful way? Join Jessica Thomason as she discusses her motivations and methods for documenting her own family. She will share her thought process during shooting and will take you step by step through a personal documentary-style session. Topics will include dealing with different types of lighting conditions, changing your perspective to capture the most compelling image, and learning to recognize the story unfolding before you. A lecture and open discussion will be followed by an "in-home" style personal shoot in which you will observe and shoot alongside Jessica with the opportunity to ask questions about her process.

Learning Objectives:
1. Discover the significance of telling your family's story.
2. Learn important concepts that will elevate your images from 'snapshots' to storytelling imagery.
3. Learn how to recognize the story in front of you and how to go about telling it visually.
4. Understand compositional tools for documentary photography.
5. Discuss knowing the rules and knowing when it is okay to break them.
6. Learn how to appropriately use a wide variety of light (both good and bad).
