The Art of Seeing with Laszlo Bencze

Laszlo lays no claim to being able to teach you anything. Rather he proposes to coach you to become your own teacher. The class will begin by looking at and discussing great photographs of the past, the sources of imagination. Then participants will explore the neighborhood in dusk light with eyes alone. Low angled light and interesting shadows reveal form and texture in ways that reward alertness, hence the choice of dusk for this class.

iPhoneography Crash Course: Creative Capture & Processing Techniques with Seán Duggan

The rise of smart phones as image capture and processing platforms is one of the most exciting developments in contemporary photography. Leading this revolution is the Apple iPhone, which is an incredible device for spontaneous creativity on the go, as well as more fully realized fine art images that can be just as compelling as photographs made with more traditional camera systems. The ability to capture images with a camera that is always with you as well as process the photos directly on the phone (a “digital darkroom in your pocket”) is a new image making paradigm that many photographers have found to be a wonderfully refreshing new way to channel their creative muse.
