Photographers of all levels are invited to explore a contemplative approach to creating images with Durango-based artist Deborah Sussex. Through a series of exercises that engage the senses, students will learn to analyze light and how to formulate a well-conceived photographic composition. Toward the end of end class, digital images will be loaded onto a computer for sharing and group reflection. This workshop provides a nonjudgmental, supportive atmosphere of exploration in photographic composition. Students should bring a digital camera with a removable flash card, notebook, pen and clothing/items for being outdoors. There will be a 30 minute lunch break during class, so bring a bag lunch. Students may also want to bring their laptop computers.
