A Four-Day Intensive Workshop on the island of Santorini, Greece with William Abranowicz
Santorini 3rd to 6th of July 2014

A Voyage Into the Light: The Process and Craft of Making Photography with William Abranowicz

Description of the workshop

Over four days we will be working on the gorgeous island of Santorini, Greece. In the Colossus of Marroussi, Henry Miller wrote of Greece, “Here the light penetrates directly to the soul, opens the doors and windows of the heart, makes one naked, exposed, isolated in metaphysical bliss which makes everything clear without being known… ”

Our workshop begins by examining what we see and how to express that vision in the photographs we make. We will cover a wide range of topics beginning with a review of existing work. We will discuss the pre-visualization process and how to approach making images before the shutter. We’ll examine what to pay attention to, what to skip and how to dig deeper.
The photographer Arnold Newman once said, “We don’t take pictures with our cameras. We take then with our hearts and we take them with our minds, and the camera is nothing more than a tool”. Knowing how to use that tool without getting mired in the digital and technological mud is the first step to achieving photographs that are soulful, emotional and well crafted. We’ll discuss camera operations and basic equipment, light, composition and making the fine print. We will take many excursions through the island and its surrounding areas to make new images. We’ll work alone and with each other and learn some rules in photography thoroughly so that we are more successful when we break them. We will reference the history of photography for inspiration. After photographing each day, we’ll review what we see and what we don’t see in our work. We’ll dabble in Photoshop and utilize it as a daylight darkroom. We will edit, edit, and edit with a new, meaningful, and beautifully presented portfolio of images will be our goal.
