A Photographic Walk About with Stacy Pearsall
The Walk About is just as it sounds – it’s a photographic journey alongside Stacy Pearsall. Students will go on-location where they will explore the environment around them and learn to see in new ways. Stacy will discuss pre-visualization, composition and approach. After, she’ll demonstrate and execute. Students will have the freedom to explore, visualize, compose and shoot on their own while Stacy floats around. This experience challenges students to conceptualize and be creative.
