Photo Forays - Tuning In

Breathe deeply, empty your mind of thoughts and expectations, awaken your senses, and be alert to all the liveliness in the landscape.
Francesca Belouin focuses on diamonds
Photography is first and foremost about seeing and being alert in the moment when light, movement, and composition come together.  We create a compelling image when we combine this seeing experience with a growing understanding of how to frame what we see through the lens and setting our cameras to capture the light and details as we'd like them to be.  In our first photo foray at Fairyland Pond in Concord's Hapgood Wright Town Forest, participants did just that.  We had a beautiful afternoon photographing together, ending with a moment of cosmic serendipity.

There are a few spaces left for the three remaining photo forays.  See previous post for registration details.  I am also posting a ongoing sampling of my favorite winter photos in the Winter Light album, http://picasaweb.google.com/khadro06/WinterLight#.
