HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE TENTH COURSE

You don't want to miss the wonderful exhibitions our graduating photographers have worked so hard on. Their work is based on the instruction and support provided from the instructors and fellow students at VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE. The classes revolved strongly around group discussions about the important elements of producing powerful photography. Some of these elements included advanced composition, lighting and color, using lines and positioning the subjects, getting the most out of viewer controls, and many other components of professional photography.

The instructors and students both provided examples to be commented on and discussed during each class. The goal of homework was to provide a doorway for communicative learning and constructive group feedback to help each individual photographer recognize and improve their skills.

Discussions and examples were provided on what to expect after graduation and how the expertise could be utilized.  Presentations by guest speakers talked about their journey and the methods they used to gain highly developed works. Previous students are always welcome to participate.

THE HISTORY OF VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE

This SL photography school opened in early 2014 and is the brainchild of WrenNoir Cerise and Nariko Okawa, two established SL photographers who have created images for magazines, store ads, vendor ads, private clients, or other personal photography. Nariko and Wren saw a need for people who wanted to take their own photos, but lacked the technical skills and/or the 'artistic eye' to create a polished, powerful, or aesthetically significant image. There was also a lack of an organized SL photography knowledge base that people could tap. Nariko and Wren decided to make the time to put together a curriculum and be available to teach. Recognizing that no one person knows everything, the course also incorporates established and well-respected photographers as guest lecturers.

VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE aims to teach her students how to 'see' what works and what doesn't work in an image. Significantly, the lessons are intense and make students fully flesh out who they are as photographers.  No one is expected to copy the teachers' techniques.  Students' own strengths are allowed to flourish and be recognized.  Everyone has a skill in something and at VISIONAIRE Institute they help you find it, refine it, augment it, and use it to the utmost.

Since opening, it has been packed with students each semester. Due to the thorough lesson plans, there are only 2 semesters offered each year -- sometimes only 1.

VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE looks to evolve as the needs of the students become more and more refined.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PREVIEW OF UPCOMING COURSES

Each class teaches Nariko and Wren something about improvements and additions to the curriculum.  You can expect to see more of:

* Creating strong imagery through tight composition
* Lighting techniques
* Portrait photography
* Blogging photography
* The business aspects of being an SL photographer
* Small, intimate classes (limited to 10 students)
* Video tutorials
