Looking into the Light: Creativity and the Photographer

January 22, 2017
10 am to 4 pm
Adult / Teen Workshop

For most photographers that first really good picture is a complete surprise. It seems as though someone has borrowed your camera for just a second. But that’s all it takes, that one wonderful photo is enough to carry you away.

What you needed to take that picture was just to be fully awake to what was around you and in you. This is how the art of photography works, and most photographers hope that such a flash of awareness will show up at the right time. But what if you didn’t wait for it? What if you went looking? In this little workshop we’ll go looking. Awakeness and awareness will be the work, whether you are an experienced photographer or someone new to the medium. In fact, you don’t even need to be a photographer, just a seer. We’ll use our minds, our bodies and our imaginations, as well as our cameras, to widen our awareness and take us into a creative state

The idea is to get beyond mere picture-taking, and participants should arrive ready to jump in! 

Parking is free on Sundays in Cambridge. Workshop will be held in room 213 at the Lesley University’s Lunder Center for the Arts located at 1808 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA. Workshop is a collaboration with Lesley University and their Community Engagement program. Please join us after the workshops for gallery show and receptions.
