3 hour workshop
We will start by meeting and going over the basics of light drawing Photography and the 3aspect Photography method at the Crate Brewery Bar in Hackney Wick.
Then finding a range of locations around Hackney Wick and Victoria Park, suited to the weather and the light levels, and using a range of light drawing 'brushes' we will shoot with either your own cameras or mine and capture your own light drawing photographs.
Once finished shooting, we will go to my nearby teaching studio for drinks and nibbles and with a laptop connected projector learn how to edit them in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, 3aspect Photography
3aspect Photography is a way of learning to take photographs with greater depth and impact. Equal emphasis is placed on cultivating and integrating 3 different aspects: Craft - Creativity - Connection.
3aspect Photography is created by Stephen Morallee, who at 15 got his first camera and instantly fell in love with photography. After completing a degree at Goldsmiths, University of London he spent the following 4 years living and working in Padova, Italy; New York City and Tokyo. He returned to London in 1998 and over the following 5 years continued to work and train with a range of crafts and processes - both as a working artist and teaching practitioner. In 2003 he had an experience with the Seiki master Kishi-San that opened up a body of work he has called Deetell. Deetell informs Stephen's work to this day both as a working artist and teacher and is the origin of the 3aspect method.
The 1st Aspect relates to craft - the technical know how - learning how your camera works and how to use it with specific intent - how to use software to manage and edit your work. This is the aspect of doing this not that - it the practical and functional aspect. It also about exploring the 'rules' of composition.
The 2nd Aspect relates to creativity, spontaneity, freedom and experimentation. In many respects it hacks the 1st Aspect.
The 3rd Aspect relates to connection. Increasingly getting out of the way and mindfully letting go of the story we have in our heads about our subject makes so much more space for them/it to reveal themselves/itself to us. In turn sometimes showing us something they have never shown before with more vibrancy and a greater depth of truth.
All 3 aspects are equally important and when they are actively cultivated and integrated I find people take photographs of much greater impact and wonder.
This class is for all levels - from complete beginners that want to learn the basics of manual photography whilst exploring shooting on location with light drawing movement to advanced level photographers that want to experience a new method (3aspect photography) and explore light drawing techniques in depth. If you want to bring your own manual camera and tripod to shoot with that's great otherwise I will have all the equipment you will need to learn and take great light drawing photos.
