MASTER ARTISAN WORKSHOP

FOCUS ON PHOTOGRAPHY: TAKE II

WITH CHUCK NORWOOD

This workshop will focus on the suggested camera gear and photographic techniques as they pertain to fine art photography (nature, landscape, and still life images). These 'tools' will be discussed and put to use in the field. Students should bring the camera gear they use to make photographs (SLRs are preferred). 

We will also discuss and perform some post exposure processing. students should bring cables to transfer images from camera to computer or images burned to a cd. 

There is no age requirement for this class but some camera experience is suggested.... this is not necessarily a beginners workshop.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Chuck Norwood makes his home in St. Cloud, MN, arriving from the east coast over thirty years ago.  He is the father of two daughters, Kristi and Brittany, and is employed as the Technical Director of the Paramount Theater in St. Cloud. Chuck started photographing in 1983.  He began using film cameras and now uses a Digital SLR. Chuck also has a website: www.cnorwoodphotograpy.net

ARTIST STATEMENT

I have always been drawn to the natural beauty, psychology, and transformations of nature and only by expressing my personal response to what I see do I begin to appreciate the need for such beauty, the value of perspective and the power of change.  Nature, however, has no need for beauty, no need to feel significance, no need to teach, it simply inspires these things.  So, I photograph to share the nature that inspires and keeps me moving on like a river to my own sea...beyond the photograph
