Join Claire Rosen on Saturday September 28th at Unique University. This will be an intensive workshop covering the elements involved in creating conceptual and thematic imagery. Not your average apparel as Claire will have a professional model wearing a birdcage dress with like parakeets inside! These images will be professional lit and can be used in your portfolios!
The first session is spent in the classroom looking at presentations of historical and contemporary photography, breaking down the elements that make a powerful photograph; the idea, mood, composition, technique, lighting, location, model, styling, retouching, etc., followed by exercises for brainstorming, concept development and preproduction. Students will then develop their own concepts.
Claire Rosen is a photographer and video artist blending a fine art sensibility with commercial work to create whimsical imagery inspired by fairy tales, fables, and other children’s stories. Her fashion, fine art and advertising work touch on the bizarre and unusual with the themes of vintage circus, burlesque, magic, curiosities and natural science interwoven throughout the images. Rosen is drawn both to beauty and darkness as it exists in life, and her images explore this duality.
Claire’s work has been recognized by Communication Arts Photography Annual, The International Photography Awards, Graphis Photo Annual, Prix de la Photographie, The Sony World Awards, Artists Wanted: Exposure, The Art Project: W Magazine as well as most recently being included in Forbes 30 under 30 in 2012 for Art & Design.
