Ed Kashi Near and Far Photography Workshop

ed-kashi-workshop-dallas-center-for-photography-07

Photographer Ed Kashi is a member of the highly respected VII Photo Agency and is known for his penetrating and insightful photography on social and political issues both domestic and international. He is equally renowned for his workshops, which challenge photographers at all skill levels to devote their time and talents to create compelling stories through pictures. As he has told previous workshop attendees “We’re all here because we love photography but for each of us it means something different.”

DCP is happy to bring Ed back to Dallas to lead a workshop on the concept of Working Near and Far. Over four days you’ll meet at the studio and go out in the field to discover what photography means to you in the context of visual story telling. Some of the ideas and topics that Ed will explore with you:

  • Near: Photographing a detail in your home that tells where you live and what you do to.
  • Personal history: Telling a story in pictures of your own life.
  • Keeping in close: How to approach and photograph someone you have access to.
  • Finding the exotic in your own back yard: “You don’t have to go to Afghanistan to make great pictures.”
  • Far: discussing how photography can report and affect geopolitical issues.
  • How social media and image sharing platforms like Instagram can be used to curate and publish visual stories.

When: February 1 -5, 2017

Where: Dallas Center for Photography

Cost: Early registration (ends January 3 at 11:55pm) is $975. Late registration is $1125.

Street Photography, Filmstyle workshop

ah_sample_3_jpg

Join Dallas-based photographer Alex Hakimi for a truly unique filmstyle photography workshop focused on creating compelling documentary and street images.

What is filmstyle shooting and how is it different from what you do every day with your digital camera?
Alex has used film as his primary medium for the past several years. He believes that shooting film, or shooting digital in filmstyle, can have a profound impact on the way we approach photography. “Film photography compels us to be methodical, applying greater foresight and awareness to each image we make.” The benefits of shooting documentary and street photography in the style of film will be a major theme throughout the workshop.

How do you shoot filmstyle with a digital camera?
Alex and his assistant will hand out memory cards for your digital camera that have just enough space left to shoot about 36 raw images. Then they will gently tape up your LCD display so you can’t review or delete your shots. You now have a digital version of a film camera! At the end of each shooting session, Alex will collect your memory cards and you won’t see your photos until the following week. Just like the film shooters in the class who will turn in their exposed rolls and wait until the next week to see their scans.

Three week schedule:
The workshop will take place on three consecutive weekend days, 4-5 hours per day. On the first day, after introductions, Alex will give an in-depth lesson on special techniques applicable to documentary and street photography. He will also discuss the benefits of shooting film, or filmstyle. The group will then head out on location to shoot alongside Alex.

The second day will begin with a review and critique of the images taken on the first day. Students will receive constructive criticism and feedback from Alex as well as each other. This will be followed by an in-depth lesson on the vision of master film photographers. We will examine the work of influential documentary and street photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Charles Harbutt, Joel Meyerowitz, Sam Abell and H.C. Bresson. The group will once again head out to a location to improve their skills alongside Alex.

Image editing and development will be the focus of the third and final day. Alex will discuss his personal editing process and Lightroom workflow. The group will also examine the contact sheets of several master photographers to better understand the methodology behind image selection. This will be followed by an editing/developing session in which each participant will prepare a series of photographs from those made over the course of the workshop. The workshop will conclude with a final presentation and critique of each student’s work.

Students will need to bring a manual 35mm film SLR, rangefinder film camera, DSLR or digital rangefinder camera. Preferable lenses would be a 28 or 35mm manual focus prime lens. A zoom will do but won’t let you practice some of the techniques covered. Manual focus lenses can be found new or used inexpensively and this may be a good time to add to your gear. A laptop with editing software is required for the third session.

When: The workshop will take place on three consecutive weekend days: Saturday, October 29, 1:00-5:30pm; Sunday, November 6, 10:30-4:00; Saturday, November 12, 1:00-5:00pm. There will be an optional dinner get together after the last session.

Where: Dallas Center for Photography

Cost: Early registration is $325. Late registration is $350.

trays-dallas-center-for-photography

Beginner Darkroom Classes

Photography can be so much more magical than pixels trapped behind a glass screen. Liberate your images into the real world! You’ll learn to process your own black and white film, make contact sheets, select the best frame for printing and work with an enlarger. Using chemistry and light you’ll create unique prints, completely hand made by you.

This introduction to black and white darkroom is for only two kinds of people; those who have worked in a darkroom and want to get back into it and those who haven’t done it yet! It’s the perfect blend of science and art and as close as you’ll get to alchemy.

Available as a 3 part evening class series starting Tuesday, October 18, 2016 and a one day workshop on Sunday, November13, 2016.

Our new darkroom facility was custom built just for teaching small groups. We have a film processing area, a printing darkroom with 10 enlarger stations, custom sinks, ample air conditioning and ventilation systems, and wise teachers to help you develop your skills.

What to bring: One roll of exposed 35mm or 120 Kodak or Ilford black and white film. No XP-2 or similar C41 process film. If you aren’t sure, write us and ask!
