The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

I love my work! Class #4 – Inner Path of Photography

A golden Cape Cod sunset lights up the side of a beach cottage on the cliffs of First Encounter Beach, Massachusetts. The silhouette of a small, elegant tree sits beneath the pinked clouds.

Inspiring…

Class #4 – “The Inner Path of Photography” – last Tuesday…
Students shared the images they made from their personal photo shoot after doing the “Shooting from Resonance” exercises from class.

Part of the homework challenge: Photographers were allowed to make only ten images – so shooting had to be thoughtful, deliberate,
truly in alignment with their feelings and intentions.

10 images were then edited down to 5 – attention to the very best. Slideshows were presented, with interesting discussions about the images,
the story, sequencing, inspiration.

Bonus: Now I want to go to the Galapagos Islands!
Plus: An unusual “tiny story” about having a home in the neighborhood
of a small-town private airport.
Have you ever parked your plane in your driveway?

Next week: “Go Wild!”

I love my work! Class #3

A winter sunset at First Encounter Beach, Cape Cod Massachusetts. Chunks of ice are scattered on the beach, with a row of snow where the tide withdrew; reflections of pink-edged clouds are seen in the water of the flats.

So wonderful…

I taught Class #3 of “The Inner Path of Photography” yesterday
at Cotuit Center for the Arts, Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Students shared their homework of creating a “tiny story” book
from five of their images, complete with title, intro page, end page.

Every piece was from the heart, unique, entertaining, educational,
(who knew these things about bees and honey?!) and a joy to experience.

Fabulous!

Next week: Shooting from “Resonance.”

Inner Path Photo Seminar at Cotuit Arts

Discover the inner experience of photography with me!

Registration is now open for my 6-week seminar 
“The Inner Path of Photography” 

at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, Cotuit, Massachusetts

January 8, 2019 – February 12, 2019
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

I invite you to join me in an exploration of the joy and mysteries of being a photographer; to deepen your connection to that knowing, special part of you that still believes in the wonder of the world; and to help you confidently create the images that express what you feel and truly want to “say.”

Drawing on the tradition of Minor White, techniques and philosophies from psychology, Zen, and other contemplative practices, exploring other artist insights on the creative process, and reflecting on our own images and reasons for being drawn to photography – we’ll connect with inner spirit, honor our awareness, feel, shoot, and create – photographs that reflect what we truly want to “say,” and lives of deeper connection.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
It will be a pleasure to have you in class.
