“Symbolic” vs. “Literal” Images at Video Workshop

WASHINGTON, DC, 25 July 2014 – Sometimes the most literal images are the least explanatory. The least informative. I made this image while shooting a documentary about a yoga camp in Greece. I wanted to depict the grace and the magic of yoga, something that I believe this image, which is a reflection in a window at the yoga hall, accurately conveys.

The picture is not “literal.” Rather, it is symbolic.

This is just one example of the kinds of things we study at my Video Workshops, the next one scheduled for October 2-5, 2014, in Washington, DC. Registration now is open but seats are limited. For more information, see:
