Red Saunders is an artist who combines his photographic practice with cultural, artistic, musical, and political activism. He is currently working with Derby Museums to create a major new artwork in his Hidden Project series for the new Museum of Making at Derby Silk Mill. Click here for more information.
As part of this project, Red will be delivering a unique Masterclass workshop, which is ideally suited to photographers interested in extending their knowledge of composition and lighting, as well as activists wanting to celebrate trade union history through the realisation of TheHidden Project.
Working closely with Red Saunders as a major UK photographer and artist, participants will have the opportunity to develop a Hidden tableau as a group endeavour. The session has a practical focus on working in a studio set-up with green screen technology. Learning from Red’s mastery of studio lighting, you’ll experiment with creative and technical processes that ensure the overall consistency of the image when produced as a large scale tableau. This will include group concept development, and there will be an opportunity to learn more about post-production processes that use composite images to create a finely crafted large-scale image.
Those attending are invited to bring props and objects with them that have special political significance.
12pm – 3pm.
