How to Talk About Photographs with Jeff Hirsch

Photography is an entirely visual medium. But if we can’t find the right words to talk about our photographs, it can be hard to describe what’s going on in them and how they were constructed.

This hour-long presentation covers the basics of a visual vocabulary that we can all use to talk about our photographs in a more articulate and expressive manner.

Cultivating an awareness of both the elements that are visible in a photo and the decisions that were made to express those elements will make you not only a more constructive commentator, it will also make you a better photographer.

Jeff Hirsch is a photographer and photo-educator with over 40 years of experience in the field of photography, digital imaging, and graphic design.

A master of “geek-to-english” translation and an Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom and Photoshop, he teaches photography and photo workflow to individuals and groups.

Along with his own class offerings, Jeff also teaches for the International Photography Hall of Fame and the Missouri Botanical Garden as part of their “Shaw Photography Series”.

Jeff is a frequent presenter at camera clubs both locally and nationally where he speaks on a wide variety of photographic subjects including street and travel photography, black and white photography, color management, photo restoration, book and slideshow creation, photographic workflow and more. Photo education IS his passion.

When he’s not teaching or locked down by a global pandemic, you will find Jeff leading photo tours to beautiful locations at home and abroad including Iceland, Cuba, Italy, Greece, New Zealand, Cambodia, Thailand, and more. Jeff’s ultimate goal on any trip is to help photographers make more compelling and engaging images as they travel the world.
