Photography as a Spiritual Practice: Inquire Within with Enfield, Farris, Larsen, and Miele

 

Why do we feel so alive when we’re out photographing? Why do hours pass like minutes when we get “lost” in darkroom work (analog or digital)? Why do some photographs seem to arrive as magical gifts from the photo gods? What does it mean to be present?; what practices (photographic, spiritual …) sustain us in challenging times?  Join us for this dynamic panel discussion featuring four photographers who believe in the magical, transformational power of photography – and who wish to take your questions about the varied ways they “Trust the Process” as a path to producing extraordinary work.

If you pay attention to the basics of light, color and composition and learn how to use these elements to your advantage, your photography will improve. Learn how to use color relations to help you compose, just as your line, shape and form.
