The play of light on a wall, perhaps, or the vivid orange of a tulip illuminated by the morning light. A quiet moment in time captured with our camera. In the first part of this workshop, we explore the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Stephen Shore, Elliot Erwin, Agnes Martin and many others as examples of what it means to see in stillness. In the second part of the workshop, we practice taking photos of our immediate surroundings using the techniques discussed in the previous section. Lastly, we discuss our experiences and photos as a class. Hearing from each other is key to fine-tuning our own practice of seeing and experiencing beauty in the moment, a practice of learning how to reside in the eye of the hurricane. This is a life long practice. We start wherever we are at, with no judgement of ourselves or others. No special photography equipment or photography experience is required. You can use the camera on your phone or any other camera that you have.
