In Search of the Personal:
Photographing Tuscany with Jeff Curto
Saturday, May 16 to Saturday, May 23, 2009
Casa Cornacchi, Bucine, Arezzo, Italy
Enjoy a photographic journey where you will experience many aspects of Tuscany’s remarkable culture, landscape and hill towns and work towards a personal photographic response to the Tuscan sense of place.
We will work with digital photographic equipment for its remarkable speed of feedback and response, combining daily photographic experiences with periodic real-time editing and critiquing of images.
Working from our base at the beautiful Casa Cornacchi, located near Bucine, ideally situated in the Chianti area halfway between Siena and Arezzo, we will fan out across the Tuscan landscape and explore hill towns, markets, vineyards and the remarkable architecture of the region. By immersing ourselves in the culture, we will get to know the people, food and wine of the region. Jeff will push you to go beyond the picturesque and help you discover your own response to the texture, rhythm and spirit of Tuscany.
This departure is limited to a maximum of 12 participants in order to ensure the best level of personal instructional attention. This is an intermediate-level photographic experience; participants should have at least three years experience making photographs, have a basic understanding of photographic processes and technology and should be comfortable using a digital SLR camera in manual mode.
