EDITING WORKSHOP, VERMONT
ADVANCED PHOTO EDITING WITH MAGDALENA SOLÉ AND ELIZABETH AVEDON
MARCH 24 — 29, 2019
In the world of fine art and documentary photography it is essential that work is well edited. Whether preparing for portfolio reviews, book proposals, gallery shows or a magazine story, 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 six-day workshop, Elizabeth Avedon partners with photographer Magdalena Solé to help you 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.
You will work in individual and group sessions with author and photographer Magdalena Solé, and exhibition and book designer, Elizabeth Avedon.
