Challenging assignments are coupled with different techniques, this approach works well to build a foundation for taking photographs intuitively. Courses consist of a series of interactive lectures, probing assignments and weekly critiques.
Photogarage is for anyone who wants to improve their visual awareness coupled with technique and a better understanding of the photographic medium. The emphasis of courses favour visual intelligence over technique. Groups are small which guarantees individual attention. Angela is a firm believer in acquiring knowledge through challenging assignments together with lots of talking and arguing through imagery.
Through this process, participants understand and apply photographic technique; learn about other significant photographers; establish visual awareness and understand what constitutes a good image. Each session starts with a critique from the previous week’s assignments, followed by a break and then interactive lectures and visual presentation for the following weeks assignments. Assignments are probing and challenging. Courses are very structured and promise a renewed vision of your world. Photogarage enjoys coffee and home baking during the breaks!
