The Way It Was in class yesterday.

Second session of “Seeing Well” at OLLI, URI

We watched videos and I projected pictures by three very good photographers (Ruth Bernhard, Ralph Gibson, and the incomparable Roy DeCarava) We noticed how they used the light to make dramatic photographs. We talked composition, and in particular how diagonal lines add power to a static image. We split into teams for the class exercise. I challenged students to “see the light” and use diagonals. We projected the results and massaged the images a little in Lightroom. Here’s the class favorite, a simple pull chain for a window shade in our class room. Something out of nothing… That's what I call  "seeing well".
