Presented by:

  • Leica Camera

Challenge your creativity to make photos unique to your visual signature. The beauty of abstraction relies on the eyes of the photographer. In this workshop, we will focus on finding visual cues that will strengthen your understanding of how design, texture and light play into abstract photography. Attendees can choose to photograph in either black and white or color, but should stick to one mode for the duration of the workshop. The workshop will incorporate a walk, starting at The Avenue of the Stars and circling back to the Annenberg Space for Photography.
