This two-day course is an intensive exploration of how the mind responds to a scene, how the eye can find the photographic composition … intuitively and how to achieve that vision through your camera. We completely focus on technical instruction, visual challenges presented to each of us, compounded by the prejudices and existing mindsets that keep us from truly capturing the photos that place you in the same level of the masters, understanding what separates a photographer from an artist.
This course is suitable for intermediate level photographers and the class is limited to six students to ensure an intimate environment, fostering the best learning opportunities possible.
