Greetings Photographers! I am excited to announce a new destination for our group of urban explorers. I scouted the newly opened Underground Park. I have to say this in an area of the city I would not have ventured into 2 years ago. But today, it has been transformed into a concrete canvas and sculpture park worthy of being seen photographically.
Seeing, in the finest broadest sense, means using your senses, your intellect and your emotions. It means looking beyond the labels of things and discovering the remarkable world around you. Freeman Patterson.
We know the mundane can be magical but often fail to capture the essence of the moment. To help you see the essence and create the essential, in this workshop we will adopt the mindset of a minimalist. Closely related to abstract photography, the skills you will develop in this workshop will help you simplify your images and cut out the clutter. There is a feeling of pure joy in a well crafted minimalist image. This is what we will explore during this field trip.
During this field trip we are combining two topics in one special photo opportunity: Mindfulness and Macro Photography. Get ready to go slow, see deeply and experience a shift in how you perceive the beauty of life. We will really focus on creative composition skills which can then be applied to any type of photos you take in the future. This is also a great class if you have been wanting to go off Auto and learn to use aperture priority to have more creative control over you depth of field. (how much is in focus)
