The Joy of Nature Photography, with Eddie Soloway

March 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am - March 24, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

Give yourself a day—one day full of photographic sessions, from 10 AM to 4 PM to honor your creative self. Bring back the joy and wonder of being in nature, and holding a camera in your hand. Learn how to make pictures that soar past postcards, and capture what you are feeling, what you are seeing, and what you are thinking. Eddie will make you laugh when he shows you his first show, and you will “get it” when he clearly shows what he didn’t understand in his early years. Looking at the work of world-class photographers, he kept asking, “How Come Mine Don’t Look Like That?” Digging back into his mistakes—his “good ones” at the time—he will lay out simple ideas to understand light, avoid chaos, create beautiful backgrounds, lead the eye with thoughtful compositions, and understand that if there is magic, work It, hang out, and slow down. His sessions will honor the classic landscape, giving you ideas to make it fresh and your own, and he will whole-heartedly dive into the interpretive landscape, celebrating the mindset of breaking out of your box, and making new photographs. Our day will swim in the creative but honor the thoughtful. Get ready for a day to set you free, to shake you out of ruts, and charge you up to make new photographs, right now.

Eddie Soloway is a photographer, teacher, and storyteller committed to opening our eyes to the natural world. He has taught photography and creativity for leading photographic institutions and schools around the world and was a popular speaker in National Geographic Traveler’s photography seminars. The Santa Fe Center for Photographic Arts (now CENTER) awarded Eddie the Excellence in Photographic Teaching Award, and Photo District News named Eddie one of America’s best photography workshop teachers. His focus on seeing brings a breath of fresh air to the workshop world.
