PRIVATE and GROUP INSTRUCTION 

for all aspects of Traditional Silver Photography

DEVELOPING YOUR PERSONAL AESTHETIC and SKILLFUL EXPRESSION of TECHNIQUE  :  the marriage of art & craft / of art & science

.

PRIVATE INSTRUCTION generally begins with a portfolio review and you laying out your areas of interest – what you want to learn from our time together.  From there we determine what we want to cover in your next few sessions and order of priorities.  This might mean reviewing more work, focusing on aesthetic development and creative exploration, spending time in the darkroom printing from your negatives, learning some aspect of procedure or technique, or going out in the field to work with camera technique, seeing and meaning, exposure, and visual exploration.

Developing Your Palette

comes from knowing and understanding your materials and the subtleties produced by each aspect.  Through years of working with hundreds and hundreds of students, I have an abundance of experience with different combinations of  products available for black and white photographic images and can  support you in developing a pleasing and expressive palette with the traditional silver printing materials available on the market today.  Like a painter loving paint, a musician in tune with a particular touch, or the subtleties of fine wine tasting, DEVELOPING YOUR PALETTE  through understanding your materials becomes part of your signature just as  your way of seeing,  your particular affinity for your chosen subject, and your sensitivity for light and shadow weaves into the totality of various elements that create your  signature photographic expression.
