Basics of Digital Photography Class

leave a comment »

Finished up the Basics of Digital Photography class yesterday.  I told these guys to come well rested for their week because it would be intense… and it’s a good thing they did.  We started the week exploring the technical and everyone shot the week in manual mode.  But as the week progressed the technical took a back seat to the aesthetics and heart that go into a thoughtful image.

I would make a motion that none of these photographers are beginners any longer.  They all got it; that poignant imagery is about what a subject feels like more than what it looks like.

Workshops are a study in group dynamics – we all are so used to doing our art in a self-contained bubble, it truly is amazing to see what can happen when we all play and push and struggle together.

Memphis Barbree was my stellar Course Coordinator for the week.  She has some stunning black & white landscape work that can be viewed on her site.  Give it a look…
