My The Magic Woods workshop is happening this Sunday, June 22nd starting at 10:00 am.
If you’re interested in participating please register ASAP. This is a fun, instructive and inspiring workshop designed to help you see things in a different way and it’s a great opportunity to spend some time outdoors as we take couple of short hikes.
Mountains and forests abound in rich symbolism which can represent emotional, spiritual or mental states. Nature’s summits and woods, powerful in their permanence and immovability, have often been associated with personal quests, overcoming obstacles, seeking inner knowledge. Artists and writers have been inspired by the majesty of mountains and the mystery of forests in a variety of ways. Herman Melville imagined Mt. Greylock as a massive great white whale and that vision fueled him to write one of the best American stories, “Moby Dick.“
The Magic Woods is a one-day photographic workshop in which we will learn ways of transforming the physical splendor and awesomeness of Mt. Greylock and its surrounding forest, by creating images which suggest a narrative beyond the subject matter’s natural attributes.
We will utilize and understand the creative impacts of the natural elements: light, shadow, wind, and time of day with the technical aspects of our cameras: lenses, f-stops, exposure. How something is perceived makes all the difference creatively. We can find our own versions of Melville’s whale.
All levels of photographic skill are welcome.
