1-Day Photography Workshop

Sale price Price $160.00 Regular price

The architecture of Arcosanti is the perfect backdrop for a 1-day photographic experience. Participants will learn the use of beginner creative techniques that incorporate depth of field, shutter speed, and exposure compensation alongside both artistic and impactful approaches to composition. General architectural information will be provided throughout the tour and architectural elements will be highlighted. Besides receiving an intimate look at Arcosanti, participants will also learn:

  • How to "see" light and the interplay of light and shadows
  • How to make creative compositions
  • How to experiment with depth of field
  • How to intentionally stop - or blur - action and movement
  • How to control ISO or exposure compensation

This workshop is led by Jessica Jameson, an Arcosanti resident and professional photographer. Jessica’s educational background includes a BA Honors in Environmental Studies and a graduate diploma in Environmental Visual Communication from the Royal Ontario Museum. She specializes in environmental portraits and creative on-location photography that takes advantage of the interplay between built and natural environments.
