This class is based on two major acting techniques I used while in the theater scene, The Sanford Meisner Technique and Viewpointing. You will learn how to apply these techniques to the way you see. This class will entail soul searching on your part as these techniques force you to ask yourself not only what you see in front of you, but why something catches your eye, and how it makes you feel. We will slowly dig into your point of view on the world. There will be lot of writing and you will probably be uncomfortable at some point. If you are not prepared to do this kind of work right now, please wait until you are. At the end of the class you will walk away with a better sense of your artistic voice, and a set of tools that will help you share that voice photographically.
