Event description

Description

In this intensive workshop, photographer John Clarke introduces some advanced creative possibilities of iPhone photography. To create unique, art-quality compositions, participants will learn about capturing the highest quality images on their iPhones, manipulating them through various apps, and preparing them for print or presentation. Each student will explore firsthand a variety of cameras (the internal iPhone camera isn't the only option!) and apps as they refine their vision and aesthetic. This workshop will be hands-on, allowing plenty of time to capture images around deCordova’s nature-filled landscape, then refine and manipulate them with Photo Toaster, Mextures, and Hipstamatic photography apps under Clarke’s guidance.


Open to photographers at all levels. No advanced iPhone photo experience necessary.


NOTE: Only the iPhone cameras and creative applications will be covered in this workshop. Apps on Androids or other non-Apple smartphones do not have the same capability and will not be covered during this session. All participants must have at least an iPhone 4, and should download both PhotoToaster and Mextures before the start of the workshop.


Limit: 15

Members: $140; Not-Yet-Members: $165

Cancellation Policy: A $50 non-refundable registration fee is included in the registration. We do not issue refunds to workshops missed by the student.


About the Instructor

Born in Central Massachusetts, John Clarke has lived throughout the Northeast around the mills, rivers, trains, and bridges often featured in his work, and now resides in Berkshire County. Often described as a “renaissance man,” John’s creativity spans the musical, literary, and fine arts. John works in many visual media, including photography, oil paints, pastels, and pencil. In his recent work, he creates abstracted natural landscapes through the manipulation of photographic images.

Clarke discovered the creative capabilities of the iPhone by chance, after his traditional camera tripod broke before a hike planned for the purpose of photographing an autumn landscape. Since then, he has become an accomplished iPhone photographer and teacher, helping his students capture and process images with a unique, painterly feel. Clarke continues to push the camera to its limits, translating photographic images into other mediums. His latest work uses photographic prints as a backdrop for layers of line, color, and symbol in pastel, pencil, and paint.
