Photography Beyond Technique Tom Persinger
August 3-8, 2014
The Photography Beyond Technique retreat and workshop is for photographers who are looking to understand how the the question of why enters into the creation of their work and how they can use this to springboard their work to the next level. In this dynamic and immersive experience we’ll retreat to the beautiful wild and scenic lands of Photographers Formulary to consider how the informed use of process can combine with subject and content to create dynamic visual pieces that articulate your vision and ideas to the viewer in compelling and meaningful ways. Along the way we’ll dispel such commonly held notions as “harder is better” and “artifacts are cool.”
This emphasis of this retreat is on how one may use the vocabulary of photographic process, from calotype to apps, as tools in the construction of their work. The retreat features print sharing and review, discussions/slides of how some contemporary photographers are using process and technique to facilitate communication, discussion and honing of your project ideas, a simple and effective digital negative tutorial along with some hands-on print making.
The text for the retreat is Tom’s book Photography Beyond Technique (PBT). Tom created PBT from his experience hosting the F295 Symposium and Seminar series. He hosted ten events over five years in which over 75 artists were asked to deliver presentations that focused on why they created their work.
