Shooting With Intention Workshop at the Los Angeles Center of Photography

Shooting with Intention

Join Aline Smithson in a weekend workshop designed to help photographers create significance in their imagery.  Participants will be exposed to genres of contemporary photography, projects created around ideas, and projects that tell personal stories. Aline will offer exercises so that students can identify a personal vision or a subject worth exploring, including photographing in the surrounding area. Work will be examined and critiqued thoroughly, offering students invaluable feedback as they reexamine the intention behind their photographs.  She is not looking for technical expertise as much as the thought behind the photographs.

Today’s fine art photography market asks for more than beautifully, well crafted images. Curators, gallerists and editors are looking for work created with intention and/or work focused around an idea or concept. In addition, they are looking for photographers who can not only articulate their images, but interpret the world with intelligence and thoughtful analysis, whether it be work made close to home or in regions undiscovered.

Ultimately, the workshop will inspire participants to reconsider how they make work, how they interpret their lives and their world, and by bringing depth and meaning to their efforts.  Designed for all levels of fine art photographers.
