I recently signed up for a Leica Akademie course, "The Truth About Photographs," to be held at the new Leica store in Washington, DC on June 7-9, 2013.

The course is led by Quinton Gordon, and focuses on the creative aspects of developing your own style in photography.

Here is the list of topics, directly from the course description:
 
  • Seeing the light.
  • Working in three dimensional space.
  • Developing complexity in your images.
  • The elements of winning images.
  • The benefits of limitations.
  • The significance of editing.
  • Finding your distinctive style.
 
The course is limited to twelve participants, and runs from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. This will be a great little creative retreat for me.
 
While I'm on the subject, I want to say how nice it is to have the Leica store nearby. In addition to being able to walk in and talk Leica with the knowledgeable staff any time I feel like it, they host Akademie courses (I took a street photography workshop there, led by Leica's Justin Stailey, last year), and always have something interesting in the gallery in the way of Leica photographs.
