Summer Workshop Fabricated Spaces: The Staged Tableau
Wednesday and Thursday, July 30 and 31, Noon – 3pm
2-day workshop, $80
Staged and constructed photography challenges the traditional view of the camera as an objective witness. Where most photographs conceal their means of production, the tableau photograph deliberately shows its artifice, and in doing so, effectively disrupts the transparency of the image. Tableau photographers use various visual strategies that both draw to the production of their pictures, and also heighten their fictional content and establish them within an imagined world.
In this workshop, Samantha will cover several topics on the subject of staging photographs; including a lecture on the history of staging in photography, different uses of the camera to create visual effects, lighting techniques, Photoshop tutorials and a breakdown of how one of Samantha’s own dioramas is made. Each participant will have the opportunity to create his or her own staged image, as the workshop will assist in refining the artists’ vision.
