Nov 5-10, 2017, San Miguel de Allende, The Good Eye: Honing Your Photographic Vision with Elizabeth Watt

$1000 Workshop tuition only

Instructor Website: www.elizabethwatt.com

Anyone can develop a ‘Good Eye’ with practice. It’s a muscle we can build like any other. This workshop will focus on refining your powers of perception and getting in touch with your unique visual voice. Have you ever wondered why some photographs of the mundane, the ordinary in everyday life, resonate with us so powerfully? What makes certain images magical, original or illuminating? It’s about actively ‘seeing’ as opposed to passively looking. It’s about shifting our filtered, judgmental, habitual mindsets. It’s about having ‘fresh eyes.'

These days, many photographers are being asked to shoot video along with stills...and not just video clips, but video stories. If you’ve ever tried it, you realize quickly that it’s not just a matter of hitting the “Record” button in addition to the shutter release. 

This workshop, taught by National Geographic Society photographer and filmmaker Bob Krist,  is designed to help you learn to shoot short, cinematic, video stories, and it’s taught from the viewpoint of a still shooter making the transition; it will help you capitalize on your strengths, and overcome the pitfalls, that many photographers confront when facing a video assignment.
