Provoking Emotion through Different Photography Techniques

The New Orleans Creative Photography Workshop is a weekend gathering from 9:00 am to 5:00 Pm, Saturday and Sunday with a break for lunch each day... we start at the studio in Class, then go to the New Orleans French Quarter on the first day.

The second day we go to prime locations we think inspire photography creatively and implement different techniques.

We discuss what motivates us as Image Makers and photographers, including the amateur Photographer to the Experienced shooter.

Creative Photography Weekend

Classes first, and then we go into the field and apply our techniques. What inspires us to capture, how to capture the spontaneity we feel as something motivates us to shoot - "without losing the shot."

We discuss motivations, several rules of composition, color, Black and white, gear, tripods, lenses, digital darkroom must haves, and the pros and cons of too much or too little with regards to gear and with the computer.

This is a fun weekend where we learn and create images that are print worthy for art, decoration, or social media. Techniques learned in this workshop will prove more than useful for as long as you shoot.... Booking a creative weekend is scheduled depending on your schedule and the studio's. Call today to reserve your place so we can get started as soon as possible. Classes

are scheduled individually (One on One) or in small in groups up to 5 or 6. Individual attendees wanting classes or full days, and weekends - gain more individual attention. If you want to combine several areas of photography study custom workshops can be designed just for you...

Using Your Camera to Tell Stories...

Photography in general alludes to fun and excitement. Photography also brings one to many places both in your minds eye and in the actual photograph. We travel to exotic places with the idea in mind to create equally exotic Photographs. We are travelers, we are adventure seekers and we want to see and do more and capture it through our cameras.

However if we don't know how to do it well, take Photographs... all that excitement dies fast when our Photographs don't look like what we felt and saw when we look at them. Good Photography creates a feeling and better photography get us excited. The old cliché that;

"A picture is worth a thousand Words!"

It's true... I would like to think and hope that some images are worth more words and some Photographs do all the talking. Wouldn't you like to be that Creator? Wouldn't you like to create pictures that speak to your viewing audience?

Take the first step with us at Stanwycks Photography and we will get you on that path today. We will help you understand photography and it's language so much better. You will see!

Snapping Photos or Creating Images?

Are we snapping photos or creating images? With Instagram and Facebook inherently everyone is a kind of journalist - yet many an image is a snapshot.

The difference however in a good image maker and a snapshot maker is our methodology and care we take to understand the image and the process to create a fine image and the equipment we use.
