(Live workshop using Zoom)

Redefining Photography itself.

“Photography should be used for a recording of life, for rendering the very substance and quintessence of the thing itself, whether it be polished steel or palpitating flesh.” Edward Weston 

The hugely influential  'F64 Group' believed in the “innate honesty” of the camera.

The group listed amongst its members some of the greats of photography - Weston, Ansel Adams and Immogen Cunningham.

On this fascinating workshop, we will explore in detail their manifesto, goals and how their pioneering work still influences photographers today.

You will also be shooting a project which we will review in the online class.

This workshop will be for 8 - 10 people only and will be the same as a face to face workshop, just from the comfort of your own home.  Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with working on-line, the tutor will be there to guide you through each step.
