Photographer, Alumnus Seth Resnick ’79 Will Visit Newhouse Jan. 29
Internationally acclaimed photographer Seth Resnick ’79 will visit the Newhouse School on Wednesday, Jan. 29, as a guest of the Department of Multimedia Photography and Design. He will speak on “Seeing Color & Enhancing Creativity: The Ingredients That Make Images Work” at 7 p.m. in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse 3. Follow on Twitter at #MPDResnick.
Resnick will discuss ways visual artists can reinvigorate their capacity for creativity through experimentation, training and practice, as well as intuition. He will explore why some images work and others don’t, and will make specific suggestions about exercises and techniques photographers can use to improve their overall creative process, refine their creative vision and create more effective and compelling images.
“Creativity is like a muscle that you need to flex regularly,” he says. “Becoming a better photographer is really about training yourself to make your mind’s eye more creative. It’s about how to look for, see and create better images.”
Resnick seeks to produce images nobody else envisions. He has made his mark in the world of contemporary photography with a prolific career spanning education, fine art, editorial, stock and commercial work. He has also trained thousands of photographers in digital workflow methods.
Chosen by Photo District News as one of the 30 most influential photographers of the decade, Resnick is in demand for his beautiful graphic images in both natural and created light. His publishing credits include more than 2,500 publications worldwide and his clients constitute a virtual “Who’s Who” of corporate America.
His talk is sponsored by B&H Photo Video Pro Audio and Nikon. For more information, contact Karen Greenfield at 315-443-2304 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
