A camera can allow you to enter more deeply into the moment. Taking pictures, your senses are more awake and attuned to your surroundings. But most of us are frustrated with the results. Why isn't the emotional charge when I took the picture coming through? Why doesn't the camera know what I feel? Why do so many of my pictures suck?
It's a cruel fact. Your camera doesn't care about you. It doesn't care about what's in front of it, like you do. You have to learn how to see the way a camera does. You need to learn how to take the emotional, connective energy that makes you want to document the moment, and transform that into the craft of seeing.
This workshop will help you do that. We will meet for six weeks, sharing work that we have done on assignment, and I will guide you to understanding the art and process of working with a camera. You don't need to have a good camera. Your phone is better than most cameras ever made. I will teach you relevant technique, but this is not a class on learning all the buttons. This is a workshop about seeing.
