CLASS DESCRIPTION

At the heart of any good photography is both the passion for the subject and your ability to uniquely capture it. If you love the outdoors yet find that your images keep looking like pretty postcards, join Eddie Soloway for an intense week of looking at the natural world with fresh new eyes.

“A Natural Eye” strives to develop your eye first, and then bring the technical skills of photography up to it. The workshop is designed to push your seeing from what’s right in front of our eyes into the world of abstractions, reflections, layers, movement, and then deeper into the realm of concepts and imagination.

During the week, outdoor experiences in local natural areas take you through important steps to enriching your photographs in the natural world as you find yourself focused less on objects and things, and more on the magic of moments and the essence of places. You stop chasing the light ad learn to enjoy the fine art of wandering. You visit the same place in different light and different weather, getting to know it, and hence seeing it with new eyes. You learn that if you hear more and touch more, you will photograph with more sensitivity. You are rewarded by the skills of patience, solitude and emptying. This workshop weaves together eye-opening outdoor experiences, technical lessons, image reviews, and Eddie’s one-on-one meetings with each participant.

This workshop is open to all photographers with a working knowledge of their camera. If you wish to participate in image reviews, you will need to bring a laptop or tablet, and working knowledge of the digital workflow. This would include the ability to download your images on our laptop or tablet, make selections, re-size them, and transfer images to your flash drive for projection from the class computer.

When the retreat is confirmed, Eddie will send along a letter detailing how to prepare and what to bring.
