Arthur Meyerson Workshop: The Color Moment
Friday, January 10 - Sunday, January 12, 2020
Join Arthur Meyerson for a compelling workshop weekend in Miami. Designed to heighten your awareness of color and increase your ability to successfully capture distinctive moments with your camera.
The workshop begins on Friday with a review of each students images, followed by an introductory presentation by Arthur illustrating concepts, ideas and visual tools utilized in capturing color moments.
Saturday, we will put classroom techniques into practice, during morning and afternoon shooting sessions. Arthur will provide assignments designed to sensitize you to light, color, and composition.
Sunday will include individual and group critiques of the work from Friday and Saturday. The final lecture will address utilizing the color moment in the creation of photo projects and books.
In the end, you will depart your weekend with Arthur with a greater appreciation for color, a stronger awareness of your own personal vision, and an enhanced sensitivity to capturing “decisive moments” in color.
"The decisive moment in black and white is not the same in color. Each needs awareness in seeing and, because of this, a different discipline.” - Ernst Haas
