THE NUDE AS FORM CONNIE IMBODEN

ON LAND AND IN WATER Our vision is so often limited by what we know that we see - what we expect to see - instead of what is actually in front of us. This can be particularly challenging when photographing the nude, a subject dominated by preconceptions. The nude, more than any other subject, is the most popular in the history of art, and possibly the most controversial.

Vår visjon er så ofte begrenset av hva vi vet at vi ser - det vi forventer å se - i stedet for hva som faktisk er foran oss. Dette er spesielt gjeldene når det kommer til akt fotografering, et emne som er dominert av fordommer. Akt er mer enn noe annet, et omstridt tema, og følgelig det mest populære i kunsthistorien, og det mest kontroversielle.

We already have a myriad of preconceptions as to what a nude should look like, what is a beautiful nude, what is appropriate, what is not appropriate, what is tasteless, what is offensive, and so on. All of this contributes to the nude as an incredibly powerful and popular subject, while at the same time an extremely challenging one and difficult to see in an original way.

Vi har allerede en myriade av fordommer om hvordan en naken kropp skal se ut. Hva er vakkert, hva som er greit, hva som er ugreit, hva som er smakløst, hva er støtende, og så videre. Alt dette bidrar til at nakenhet er en utrolig virkningsfullt og populært fag. På samme tid ekstremt utfordrende og vanskelig å se på en original måte.

Through exercises, assignments, and discussions, the goal of this workshop is to learn to use the camera as a tool to discover new ways of looking at and interpreting the human form. By looking at it as form, we will learn to develop an intuitive visual approach in photographing the body in order to see it in a new way and be truly original with this most popular subject. DATES: TUITION: LOCATION:

Gjennom kreative øvelser, oppgaver og diskusjoner, vil du lœre og bruke kameraet som et verktøy for å oppdage nye måter å se og tolke menneskelig form på. Ved å se kroppen som en form, vil vi utvikle en intuitiv visuell tilnærming. Vi vil se med nye øyner og på det viset finne det originale, i det mest populære oppbrukte temaet i kunsten.

WET PLATE COLLODION AND ALBUMEN PRINTING JILL ENFIELD

This workshop will transport you back to the beginning of photography and teach you to create glass negatives and tintypes using wet plate techniques from the 1860s. Our instructor Jill Enfield, has written two books about the topic and is regarded as one of America’s most experienced and respected alternative process artists.

Denne workshopen vil ta deg tilbake til begynnelsen, og lære deg å lage glass negativer og tin positiver ved hjelp av våte plate teknikker fra 1860-tallet. Vår instruktør Jill Enfield, har skrevet to bøker om emnet, og regnes som en av USAs mest erfarne og respekterte alternative prosess kunstnere.

The collodion process, which is said to have been invented in about 1850, was the first widely used photographic process that produced a negative image on a transparent photographic medium. Other methods of the time, such as the Daguerreotype, produced a one-of-a-kind positive image, which could not be replicated easily. With the collodion process, however, the photographer could make an unlimited number of prints from a single negative.

Våt Plate Collodion, sies å ha blitt oppfunnet i ca 1850, og var den første allment brukte fotografiske prosessen som produserte et negativt bilde på en gjennomsiktig fotografisk medium. Andre fremgangsmåter, slik som Daguerreotypiprosessen, produserte et unikt positivt bilde, men da uten mulighet til å reprodusere det. Collodion prosessen hadde mange fordeler da den kom, og en av dem var at man kunne lage et ubegrenset antall utskrifter fra en enkelt negativ.

The workshop will cover the entire process from cutting and preparing glass & aluminum, mixing and handling chemicals, safety procedures, making portable darkrooms, assessment of exposure time, evaluation of results, and all that goes into mastering wet plate collodion and albumen printing. From the glass negative we will learn to produce a print using the albumen technique, which was the first commercially exploitable method of producing a photographic print on a paper base from a negative.

Workshopen vil dekke hele prosessen fra å kutte og forberede glass og aluminium, miksing og håndtering av kjemikalier, sikkerhetsprosedyrer, oppsett av bærbart mørkerom, vurdering av eksponeringstiden, evaluering av resultater, og alt som hører med for å mestre våtplate og albumen teknikken. Fra glass negativet vil vi, ved bruk av albumen teknikken, lage en utskrift av bildet. Denne teknikken var den første kommersielle fremgangsmåten for kopiering av bilder på papir.

It is ideal for photographers who are comfortable with the technical aspects of their equipment and are looking to create staged narrative images taking their photography to the next level.

Denne workshopen vil dekke alle element som inngår i å utvikle konseptuelle bilder fra ide-stadiet til ferdig utførelse. Klassen er ideell for fotografer som er komfortable med de tekniske aspekter av eget utstyr og er ute etter å mestre iscenesatte bilder, som forteller en historie, og som tar fotografiet til et nytt nivå.

Students focus on brainstorming, concept development, and thinking outside the box when approaching visual storytelling. The course walks through step by step how to make your picture concept a reality through mood boards, production sheets, pre-production and scheduling; with lectures on how to source locations, props, and lighting theory; how to cast and work with subjects, as well as problem – solving, communication, and working efficiently on set or on location.

Studentene vil bli trenet i kreativ ‘brain-storming’ teknikker, konseptutvikling, og det å tenke utradisjonelt, samt bryte grenser i sin tilnærming til visuell historiefortelling.

All participants will execute their own concept on the workshop, from idea to finished image. DATE: TUITION: LOCATION:

THE SHADOW SCULPTOR WILLIAM ROPP

PAINTING WITH LIGHT - A PORTRAIT WORKSHOP William Ropp is known for his unique style, where his images are so dimensional and expressive that they look like they are sculpted from shadow and light. When you add in the quality of light in his images, it is easy to understand that his work has grabbed the art-worlds attention. This is a workshop for photographers whom want to push their portrait skills to a new level. Participants will learn how to create amazing and different portraits using William’s flashlight technique and his special approach in Photoshop. You will also gain an insight into his specific approach regarding the portrait; how he treats his models to get them to feel at ease and safe, and how just with a short talk he helps them to open up to the photographer so it is possible to “see the soul mirrored in their eyes”. There will also be a part in the workshop dedicated to his lighting technique, where he will show participants how to sculpt a body or a still life with the beam of a torch lamp. We will arrange for models to be available for the students to photograph. DATES: TUITION: LOCATION:

September 13 - 17 NOK 7.700,Saga – Inderøy - Norway

William Ropp er kjent for sin unike stil, hvor bildene hans er så dimensjonale og uttrykksfulle at de ser ut som de er skulpturert fra skygge og lys. Hans portretter gir ofte en følelse av at personen på bildet ser på betrakteren, og ikke omvendt. Legger du til kvaliteten på lyset, så er det ikke overraskende at Williams arbeider fanger stor interesse i kunst miljøer. Dette er en workshop for fotografer som ønsker å ta sine portretter til et nytt nivå. Deltakerne vil lære å skape fantastiske og annerledes portretter ved å ta i bruk Williams spesielle lys-teknikk og hans tilnærming i Photoshop. Du vil også få et innblikk i hans tilnærming angående portrett; hvordan han behandler sine modeller for å få dem til å føle seg vel og trygg, og hvordan han med en kort samtale hjelper dem til å åpne seg for fotografen, så det er mulig å “se inn i sjelens speil”. Workshopen dekker og demonstrasjon og øving med Williams spesielle lys-teknikk, hvor han ”maler” modellen, eller et stilben, ved bruk av lommelykt. Vi vil ha modellene tilgjengelig for deltakerne å fotorafere, og et parr ulike studioer klar slik at deltakerne får nok muligheter til å teste ut og forbedre sin personlige tilnærming til teknikken.

THE AUTUMN LANDSCAPE EDDIE SOLOWAY

EXPERIENCE AND PHOTOGRAPH NATURE IN NEW AND EXCITING WAYS Our fall workshop with nature photographer Eddie Soloway is designed to push participants from seeing what’s right in front of their eyes, into the world of abstractions, reflections, layers, movement, and then deeper into the realm of concepts and imagination. During the workshop, outdoor experiences in local natural areas take participants through important steps to enriching their photographs of the natural world as they find themselves focused less on objects and things, and more on the magic of moments and the essence of places. This is a workshop suited for all levels. Our goal is to strengthen your skill, and develop your eye so you are able to create stunning images of nature, as you see and experience it. This workshop weaves together eye-opening outdoor experiences, technical lessons, image reviews, and Eddie’s one-on-one meetings with each participant. DATES: TUITION: LOCATION:

På vår workshop “The Autumn Landscape” med landskapsfotograf Eddie Soloway vil vi søke å utvikle hva vi ser først, og deretter bringe inn de tekniske ferdighetene. Deltakerne vil få kreative oppgaver som er ment å trene blikket til å se og oppleve naturen fra et nytt ståsted. I steden for å se det som er rett foran deg, så vil du etterhvert begynne å se naturen som et abstrakt kunstverk med fokus på farger, former, refleksjoner, lag, bevegelse. Et nytt landskap blir synlig hvor konsepter og fantasi får fri flyt. I løpet av uken vil flotte naturopplevelser i landskapet på Inderøy ta deltakerne gradvis vekk fra det å se på naturen, til å føle naturen, oppleve dens magi og skjørhet. Du vil slutte med 
å jakte på lyset og heller nyte gleden av å skape kunst i landskap. Dette er en workshop for alle nivå. Vårt mål er at du skal styrke dine bilder gjennom å bruke alle sansene, slik at bildene som skapes formidler en opplevelse av DITT landskap. Denne workshopen vever sammen storslåtte naturopplevelser, tekniske leksjoner, bilde kritikker og one-on-one oppfølging fra foreleser Eddie.

ICELAND Iceland is a country of sharp contrasts. A place where fire and ice co-exist. Where dark winters are offset by the summer’s midnight sun. The country is also known for its great variety in scenery and landscape. Iceland was the last European country to be settled, mostly by Norsemen in the 9th and 10th centuries. They came mainly from Norway and elsewhere in Scandinavia, and from the Norse settlements in the British Isles, from where a Celtic element was also introduced. The language and culture of Iceland were predominantly Scandinavian from the outset, but there are traces of Celtic influence in some of the ancient poetry, in some personal names and in the apperance of present-day Icelanders. Our workshop in Iceland takes place in the Golden Circle, close to the major attractions in South Iceland such as Geysir, Gullfoss and Thingvellir National Park.
