The Personal Story with Susan Burnstine
Photographic images are deeply rooted in personal emotion. This is the case whether they are found or created, regardless of genre—be it landscape, still life, portraiture, nature, abstraction, photojournalism, self-portrait, or documentary. As photographers we strive to convey our vision in a true, honest, and consistent manner, establishing an emotional connection with each image we create.
Under Susan’s practiced tutelage, you will learn how to articulate and refine your vision by delving into symbolism, metaphor, and personal stories. In the process, you will examine your own personal narratives, aesthetics, and psychology in image making.
Through hands-on demonstrations, creative exercises tailored to you, group discussions, photographing assignments, and portfolio reviews, you are encouraged and inspired to grow and reach the next level of your artistic achievement. Also, we will discuss such practical topics as long-term project development, portfolio editing, marketing, publishing, and exhibitions.
Join Susan for a rich exploration of the self, as you harness the power of photography to realize individual narratives.
