SNAPSHOP! 2011 WORKSHOPS

Over the course of four Saturdays in April 2011, 60 students from underserved areas of Los Angeles were exposed and instructed on a variety of different types of photographic styles/genres.

Each Saturday was hosted by a different venue from Santa Monica to West Hollywood and Central Los Angeles. Students selected one area of photographic style to learn throughout the month of April 2011, and in collaboration with the instructor, selected their image for a printed exhibition for the official closing night of The Month of Photography Los Angeles.

The instructors and guests speakers are listed below.

A special thank you to all of our host venues, Santa Monica College, Julia Dean PhotoWorkshops, Lomography and Broadway Art Space for donating their space to support this program.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Instructor: Kori Stanton

In this workshop students captured the true essence of animals.  Dogs and cats have expressions just like humans and although they can’t really tell us how they are feeling we can see it all over their face and in their body language.  Students took a few moments to get to know pets and then through the image captured a true representation of their personality.  Students captured proper portraits of their favorite furry friend.  This workshop explored portraiture at a whole new level as students used their photo skills and connection with the animal to tell their story.
