Student Work: April PPSOP Class.

Peter shot this all in the camera on a rainy night.

Peter shot this all in the camera on a rainy night.

I’m especially proud and impressed by the number of really good photos from this class. It was a great four weeks, and every day I saw in all my fellow photographer’s work how much their thought process, their approach to “making not taking pictures”, and how their eye was progressing.

In both my online class with the PPSOP, and in my “Stretching Your Frame of Mind” workshops I conduct around the planet, I teach people how to incorporate the Elements of Visual Design into their photography. I also show them how to use other important elements such as the silhouette and shadows as two examples. Each week I give out a lesson with two of the elements as their assignment, and I give out a video critique for each one photo submitted to me.

I call it my Artist Palette, and after the end of both my part I and part II, their Artist Palette is filled with: Line, Texture, Pattern, Form, Shape, Negative Space, Perspective, Visual Tension, the silhouette, and  your best friend the shadow.

When you look at the slideshow, keep in mind that my class is not allowed to use any post processing during the four weeks, so what you see is straight out of the camera.

Impressed? I am!!!

Visit my website at: www.joebaraban.com, and watch for my 2015 workshop schedule at the top of this blog. Come shoot with me. I have three spots left for my coordinated trip with Epic Photo Tours to Myanmar. An incredible place to shoot, so rich in photo opportunities. last, I have two spots left in my upcoming photo tour and cultural exchange to Cuba. This is sponsored by the Santa Fe Workshop.

Don’t forget to send me a photo and question to: AskJoeB@gmail.com, and you’ll receive a video critique.
