ONLINE WORKSHOP — Your Inner Gift: Cultivating the Art of Simplicity in Photography
NO SPOTS LEFT IN THIS WORKSHOP. PLEASE EMAIL US IF YOU WISH TO BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST.
Are you interested in making images that express a sense of who you are on the inside? Do you want your images to be more simple and meaningful?
Learn how to cultivate a mindful, intuitive awareness of simplicity in approaching subject matter and composition. Move beyond capturing well exposed snapshots of what you see to using basic elements of a visual grammar to communicate what you feel and to create images that are uniquely personal and meaningful. The focus will be divided equally between finding simplicity within—by developing and nurturing a relationship to subject, camera, and self—and finding simplicity without—by learning specific methods and approaches, including post-processing techniques, to enhance your visual and spiritual awareness of space in the world around us and in our photographs. Ultimately, explore how to convey the spirit of Minor White's sage admonition to "photograph things not only for what they are, but also for what else they are." Note: participants may use any type of camera they wish, including a film or digital SLR, a point-and-shoot, or a cell phone camera.
By training and profession, Andy Ilachinski is a physicist. However, both by temperament and inner muse, he is a photographer. Photography became his life-long pursuit the day his parents gave him a Polaroid instamatic camera for his 10th birthday. Through his photography, Ilachinski studies the mysterious relationship between inner experiences and outer realities. His creative process is very simple. He takes pictures of what calms his soul. Ilachinski's work has been widely published and awarded. His images have been featured in Lenswork four times, spotlighted in B&W magazine twice, and has been featured in Still Point Arts Quarterly. Ilachinski has been a multiple-time finalist in the prestigious B&W Spider Awards and his work has appeared on many online magazines and blogs (including Luminous Landscape and Shadow & Light magazine). He won the international book contest sponsored by the UK Black + White Photography magazine in 2007. His blog (started in 2004) has been named one of the top 100 photography blogs by Photography Colleges. He received the award Best in Show—Portfolio in Still Point Art Gallery's exhibition Simplicity.
