Beyond Technique: Artistry, Creativity, Meaning and Personal Style
A Presentation by Kas Stone
You’ve been photographing for a while. You have all the gear. You are comfortable with camera technique and rules of composition. You’ve mastered basic photo editing at the computer. And you can put it all together to make good images most of the time. But you feel that you are missing something; you think there must be more.
Join professional photographic artist Kas Stone for a journey Beyond Technique. This exploration of artistry, creativity, meaning and personal style will challenge you to dig deeper – and reward you with a fresh perspective that will help you make better images than ever before.
Kas Stone is based in Dublin Shore, Lunenburg County, where she runs a studio gallery and leads workshops in digital imaging. She is active in the photographic community as a presenter and competition judge. Her portfolio includes an extensive list of publications, exhibitions and national awards, with two wilderness guidebooks published by The Boston Mills Press and a feature profile in Outdoor Photography Canada magazine.
