In-Person Learning Class
Close your eyes and think about memorable photographs—images that made you take notice, perhaps even changed you. With today’s avalanche of new cameras and software releases, all making you think they are prerequisites to being a photographer, we can easily forget that people make photographs. Lasting images are created from a delightful and precious dance between what you see, and how you think and feel.
Join Eddie Soloway in a unique workshop experience designed to push your seeing from what is in front of your eyes into the world of abstractions, reflections, layers, movement, and then deeper into the realm of concepts and imagination. On Friday, Eddie will stir the pot of creativity with an evening of discovery and learning. On the weekend days that follow he will blend hands-on outdoor sessions with indoor presentations, bringing ideas into the concrete.
This workshop focuses on the most important skill in photography – seeing – and is therefore open to anyone with any camera. For those prepared in the digital workflow, there will be time Sunday to look at images made Saturday afternoon. Students will walk away with the ability to see more of the world around them and learn how to translate abstract ideas into visual imagery.
