Workshop | The Art Of Noticing with David J. Carol

Sunday, March 6, 2016, 10:00 - 11:30

For David Carol, the most important aspect of photography is noticing the world around him and showing the viewer something she or he may not have seen if he didn’t photograph it. To do this, he puts himself in an environment conducive to the type of imagery he’s seeking and then allows himself to be available to really notice the world around him. This two-part workshop will start with a slide show of David’s work wherein he will discuss how he made the photos presented, then followed by a demonstrative photo walk. Carol will show you his process, explain what he’s seeing and thinking and teach you to love it as much as he does. Our goal in this presentation and photo walk is for you to harness the environment at hand to focus on and expand your unique vision for making thought-provoking imagery. Learn how to be process-oriented rather than results-oriented. Once you can do that the photographs will come, and even if you don’t get a photo every time out, at least you’ll enjoy the process.
