Recently, a student and I set out to take sunset photos over point Reyes on Mt Tam’s Ridgecrest Blvd. As the sun set I turned to the right and saw one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. If we want to become artist / photographers we have to stop, look, see beyond our intent, find the hidden beauty and then know how to capture / create / communicate that vision.
Visualize: The Art of Seeing and Creating the Artistic Vision
Visualize: To form a mental image - to imagine:
“The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE.” Ernst Haas
Visualize: To make visible to the eye:
Great photographs are not taken, they are made" Ansel Adams
Leaning to see is a process that is unique to each individual, shaped by their experience and how they feel and interact with the world on that particular day time.
The intention of these workshops is to help attendees learn to slow down and see, develop their own art and style. Help with the technical, design or artistic support readily available. Attendees can choose to stay together drawing from each others' creativity, or they are free to explore in pairs or on their own.
First: We will meet at the studio a/o streaming video conferencing for two hours, discuss the process of becoming mindful and The Art of Seeing, the goals of the day and how we are going to accomplish those goals.
Each of the four workshops: Macro, Natural Landscape, Urban Landscape and The Human Experience are divided into four three-hour Bay Area sessions and a two hour in person or live video conferencing critique of the images from each of the previous session.
The intention of this introductory workshop is to help attendees learn to slow down, see and develop their own art and style. Attendees should have a good understanding of how to use the manual functions of their camera - controlling exposure and depth of field are key creative tools. Attendees can choose to stay together drawing from each others creativity, or they are free to explore in pairs or on their own.
Included are a comprehensive hand out for the classes, a guide for slowing down, being present and learning to see.
