Edit for Perception

Program Description
A little over one year ago NCPS featured the first part of this workshop, “Shoot for Story”. This month NCPS will continue with the second part of the workshop, “Edit for Perception”.

The power of your photography begins with the visual symbolism of the story you are telling (“Shoot for Story”). Editing in Lightroom and Photoshop conveys your story to the viewer (“Edit for Perception”). This interactive workshop briefly reviews the "shoot for story " process from part-1, then focuses on “edit for perception” using examples of classical and contemporary photos, events, portraits, pets, landscapes and car culture.

This workshop is discussed in more detail here.

Artist's Statement
The narrative creative framework informs and inspires all of my client and personal photography projects.

For clients I am an event photojournalist: I seek and capture the visual story that unfolds at the client's event.

My personal interests include narrative and documentary approaches to urban scenes with cultural significance.  Current projects include: contemporary protest-activism iconography, urban narratives with irony and juxtapositions, and narratives with isolation.

I believe the photographer's role is to find the subject's message and translate it into a visual narrative that the viewer can understand intuitively and quickly. The successful image is a meaningful visual-literacy partnership between the creator and the viewer.
