'The Art of Seeing' with William Shepley - Mar 31, 2017

A Photography Workshop with William Shepley

Never before in the history of photography have so many people been photographing the events around them. Smartphone technology has put a camera in the hands of hundreds of millions of people. Factor in social media, the internet, Instagram and what we are witnessing is a phenomena nothing short of extraordinary.

But for many there is a passionate ambition to rise above the mediocracy and develop a shooting style that can be recognized as original, visually stunning and identified with the shooter's brand.

My workshop, titled the 'Art of Seeing', examines the visual formula or science found in every great photograph. Components, including light, color, composition, visual framing, balance and subject matter can be seen as an equation or formula and learned. Recognizing these components of the formula and how to masterfully wield them is the fastest path towards developing one's own style.
