If you are looking for a technical photography course this workshop is not for you. If you are interested in learning to use your camera to expand your relationship with nature, be inspired, and help you cultivate inner peace, please read on...

Have you ever looked at the veins in the petal of a flower? Noticed the tiny worlds reflected in the drops of dew on a plant? Did you know the human eye can detect 1 million shades of blue? How many have you noticed in the sky recently? When we slow down and look, really look, we are gifted with "new eyes" with which to experience the beauty of nature at a level which most people never take the time to notice. Using the camera as a mindfulness tool we learn to ground ourselves and become more connected to nature and our own lives. The process itself is largely the purpose with the images you create an added bonus and an inspirational reminder of the value of slowing down to see.

This is a unique one of a kind two-part Workshop on utilizing Photography As a Form of Meditation with the Camera as a Mindfulness Tool. Topics covered include: 1) Theory: How can Photography Be a Form of Meditation? 2) Light, 3) Texture & Pattern, 4) Finding the Beauty Where You Are, 5) Learning to See/Look Beyond the Obvious, 6) Food as Art & Mindful Eating, 7) Guided Seated Meditation designed to enhance Sensory Awareness, 8) Guided Photo Shoot to put "Photography As Meditation" into practice. This workshop is suitable for all levels of photographic experience including those who only shoot with a smartphone or as advanced as a DSLR or large format Graflex. Both class sessions will begin at BCC with the majority of the second session taking place at a nearby nature site and the participants will need to provide their own transportation. Participants should bring their own bag lunch both days and a portable chair to the second class. Ages 16 and over, a $3 materials fee will be added to the tuition.

Session 6 Rendering II
The act of photography is not random. It begins with the Photographer seeking out, or noticing, or even constructing a scene that can be captured and rendered into an image that will engage the Viewer. It begins with Seeing. How do we learn to see as a photographer? This class will introduce practices that help to develop this essential skill and students will try these out on the Craft Center campus.
This is the last of six individual sessions intended for moderately skilled photographers who wish to begin to develop deeper skills in Seeing, Capturing and Rendering, primarily in landscape or outdoor photography. Students should bring a digital camera that they are familiar with and that has controls for aperture, shutter and ISO (don't forget to charge the battery and bring a memory card). Each session will end with a photographic assignment to be reviewed at the following session. Additional study materials will be provided for continuing after the course. Ages 18 and over, a $10 materials fee will be added to the tuition.

Session 4 Light
The quality of light is the soul of a photograph. Outdoors It is a challenge to make use of the available light without losing detail in deep shadows or clipped highlights. Indoors we have more flexibility to create our own light. This class will explore the use of simple studio lighting equipment for portraits and objects, but the principles of lighting whether outdoors or in the studio remain the same.
This is the fourth of six individual sessions intended for moderately skilled photographers who wish to begin to develop deeper skills in Seeing, Capturing and Rendering, primarily in landscape or outdoor photography.
