When South Florida-based veteran photographer Jonathan Scott pursues Facebook and comes across trite wedding photos or couples posing in uninspiring engagement photos, he cringes. To Scott, photography is an art form meant to tell a story, but Scott finds that photographers too often tarnish their works by misuse of a camera. To put a stop to bland photography, Scott will lead a three-hour workshop Saturday in which he encourages participants to arrive with unrestrained creativity and ready to conceptualize wild scenarios. The workshop will divide participants into groups of two or three people and provide each group with a style-ready model dressed as a persona like a homeless lady or a hot rock star. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the class will teach photogs how to capture the model's persona, melded with the location and lighting to seamlessly put together a story as seen in magazines. The class is open to all levels and costs $100 per person. South Florida Camera Club members can purchase a spot for $75. Bring a camera and a glass full of creative juices.
