ONE-ON-ONE EDITING, VERMONT
ADVANCED PRIVATE PHOTO EDITING WORKSHOP WITH MAGDALENA SOLÉ
This is an intensive two full day, one-on-one workshop. It requires you have a complete project that you wish to edit and sequence for submission to a venue: a book proposal, an exhibit, a gallery or a portfolio review.
In the world of fine art and documentary photography it is essential that work is well edited. A solid foundation in the fundamentals of editing and sequencing are necessary tools in the current art market. We’ve all been there: wallowing in hundreds of images, each a little different from the next. What to choose?
In this two-day workshop with photographer Magdalena Solé we will hone your eye for efficient self-editing. You will learn to edit large bodies of work in a practical way towards selection of the best images and how to quickly differentiate between good pictures and those that are not. You will also learn how to create a consistent look, develop a narrative theme and practice the art of sequencing.
The workshop will be held at Magdalena Solé’s studio in West Halifax, VT located in the beautiful rural countryside of Southern Vermont in an old 1790’s farmhouse. Participants can stay in the nearby quaint town of Wilmington.
Participants are required to bring one project to the workshop.
