I’ll be offering a new photography course through the Pomona Valley Art Association in June. At four weeks it can be an introduction or a refresher to what I call “real” photography. Like many photographers, black and white was my first introduction to a new way of seeing the world. I hope to be able to pass on my enthusiasm and possibly open up a new way of traveling on your own photographic journey. Hope to see you on Monday June 6th.
I will be offering a new Photography course at the Pomona Valley Art Association’s new Art Place located in the Montclair Plaza.
The class topic is Closeups in Nature. We’re right at the beginning of Spring, so I hope it will be appropriate. The course could offer assistance to painters who paint from their photographs.
Class meetings will be on four consecutive Mondays starting Monday April 4.
The class will meet from 5-8PM.
Topics will include:
Alternative Post Production Techniques
Weekly Work Reviews
There will be one field trip to the Santa Ana Botanical Gardens in Claremont.
Course fee is $100 Payable the first meeting
A fuzzy image of a box full of puppies created with a pinhole device will always have a deeper emotional impact when compared to an 8×10 view camera “fine arts” silver gelatin print of a pile of kelp lying on a foggy beach outside of Carmel.
Half the world now carries an image-creating device at all times. Never before have so many people, from around the world, participated in such a massive subliminal collective visual cultural shift that transcends all that has existed before. I’m not talking about a temporal past relegated to an awareness of visual perceptions from 100 years ago.
I’m overwhelmed by the immeasurable number of images which have cascaded over the sheer edge of this collective visual surreality in the past 10 seconds.
Sunday morning I posted a group picture from a class reunion on FB that immediately listed the names of four people in the picture via face recognition. One of the people lives in Brazil and is not even on FB.
I’m just sayin’.
I’ll be offering a new course at Tri-Community School of Photography, this Summer. The course title is “Composition—Seeing the Unseen.” The class meets on Wednesday afternoons from 1-4, starting June 19th. This course is designed for all photo skill levels. The course will attempt to guide you to “see” in new and non-traditional ways. Any and all imaging tools are allowed. While it’s a new digital/visual world, nothing can surpass the perception of an insightful moment that speaks for itself.
