Memories, Moons, and Imagination: Re-kindling a Passion for Photographing the Landscape with Eddie Soloway
Do you like the outdoors yet find that your images keep looking like pretty postcards? Or perhaps you’ve been distracted by cameras, pixels, and software at the expense of building your vision. We joined Eddie Soloway for a fun presentation meant to re-charge our sense of wonder and help stretch your vision into new image-making.
At the end of the presentation Eddie took us on a behind-the-scenes look at fifteen photographs, giving us concrete ideas and tools to break out of the box. It was insightful and very helpful to see what makes a photo interesting.
Eddie Soloway’s photographs are the expression of his passion and commitment to the natural world.
His eye has developed during a lifetime of exploring the earth’s wild places. Former positions in educational workshop design, wilderness program development, and custom fine photographic printing have further honed his expertise. In 1998, Eddie was the first recipient of the Excellence in Photographic Teaching Award presented by the Santa Fe Center for Photography.
Today he divides his time between making fine-art prints, teaching, speaking on creativity and the photographic life, and furthering photographic publishing projects. His first book, One Thousand Moons, was published in the summer of 2004, and the dvd, A Natural Eye – Big Sur was released in December, 2009. An impassioned teacher, Eddie brings experiences in both nature and photography to his workshops and seminars.
So as you can imagine… this was one amazing 2 hour ride.
