    [CENTER]The Art of Seeing Workshop
    Bruce Barnbaum, Instructor and Facilitator
    July 27-29 2007. Tuition is $160. Limited to 12 students.[/CENTER]

    Many people feel that the essence of a photography workshop is to pick up upi camera, get out into the field, and start shooting. But there’s a great deal of real work preceding and accompanying shooting that is the real essence of the fine photography. What is needed, along with a camera, is the art of observation, the art of seeing, the art of noticing, and the art of imaging. This workshop will be strictly focused on those prerequisite and accompaniment to fine photography.
    The workshop will concentrate on discussions, presentations, and in-death reviews. Bruce will show his own work, fully discussing what he saw, what he was looking for, how he composed the image with the available light and forms, how he imagined the final print would look while he was standing behind his camera (which largely determined the exposure and development of the negative), and the processes he used to go from the discovery in the field to the final image now in front of your eyes. He will solicit your own views on the images to see if they parallel, diverge, or go in the opposite direction of his own vision. This type of in-depth discussion and analysis and discussion brings out aspects of your own way of seeing and thinking that you may not be aware of, and helps give you directions for pursuing your own vision.
    All participants’ in the workshop will be expected t bring between 10 and 20 of their images for additional in-depth discussion and analysis of each participants work. Al approaches are welcome: color, B&W, alternative processes, mixed media traditional photography or digital photographic processes.
    The workshop will alternate between highly enlightening discussion/critiques of Bruce’s work and those of the participant's work. By the end of the workshop, you will have gained unimagined insight into your own interests and approaches to photography, in particular, and the entire realm of art, in general. This workshop will be held at Washington State University, Vancouver.
