“Inner Path of Photography – Santa Fe” Weekend Experience, Sept 16-18, 2011

(“Many moods of Santa Fe” © 2010 Heidi Straube)

The art of photography is much more than just pushing a button. There is an inner process that reflects the mystical, spiritual part of life, inside of us as well as outside. We can learn to take better photographs by understanding and developing this inner quality, as well as understand ourselves and improve our lives by following the inner path.

Please join me for this special weekend in Santa Fe, September 16-18, 2011.

“The Inner Path of Photography – Summer Session”
3 different sessions, daytime and night

The essence of a great photograph, one that truly rocks your soul, is much deeper than that. It comes from within the photographer, from the heart and soul. This class is for those who want to improve their photographs and their lives by understanding and improving their “inner” skills. more…
