About the class:
The goals of the workshops are to teach people how to see the world through a photographic eye, how to express meaning through photography, and how to both explore and express personal perspective through the photographic medium. The workshops will look at techniques in composition, lighting, light balance, depth of field, and other elements foundational to photography. The first session will focus on exploring the topics of technique and expression, ending with a "homework" assignment in which participants will be given words and asked to explore what those words mean to them through photography. The second workshop will include a group artistic critique of everyone's work to help each participant learn from each other and practice enunciating why they have chosen to express themselves photographically in the way they have.
Sukhi Heumann’s work is currently displayed in an international art exhibit in Germany. She has been interested in photography since childhood, but didn’t become passionate about it until age 17 when living in India. Sukhi began taking photos of street children and found her camera to be a means of both connecting with these children and giving them an opportunity to express themselves when they were otherwise voiceless in their community. Since returning to San Diego, she has worked as a photojournalist for the Telescope newspaper at Palomar College, served as the photographer for local San Diego bands, and photographed events for St. Bart's. Sukhi’s goal in photography is create works that highlight the beauties and blemishes of mankind and inspire people to see the world differently.
