The Art of Invention with Intention

Amy’s session will inspire you to push your creative boundaries to make art with intention and stand out from the crowd. It will include a practical study of the anatomy of an image, including composition, framing, focus, light, exposure, negative space, pattern and texture as well as some creative in-camera techniques she has mastered, including reflections, creative use of shutter speed and multiple exposures as well as creative work in photoshop with layers, layer modes and textures to create artful images. You’ll have the opportunity to shoot alongside Amy and put your newfound knowledge into practice.
