I am attending a 5 day photography workshop at the Miksang Institute in Boulder, Colorado. Miksang is Tibetan for Good Eye. It's a form of contemplative photography which works to facilitate "direct seeing" without the filters and preconceptions we generally superimpose. Today was the first day and it was about seeing and photographing color. We did several exercises in the morning to help us form the intent to see color and then spent a couple of hours on the Pearl Street Mall shooting color. We then returned to learn more and see what we all had shot. Here are my picks for today.
As I was heading home from the gym on Tuesday, the light was fantastic --- a wonderful pre-twilight violet. I took a small detour to the promenade and caught this scene.
I have been participating in a Portfolio Development Series at B&H. It includes participating in photo critiques, attending at least 6 courses at B&H's event space, and regular blogging. By fulfilling those requirements, I was eligible to submit 3 photos to a juried exhibition at Soho Photo for possible inclusion in a show. I am very excited that one of my photos was chosen. The show opening reception is this Thursday, May 6th - 6:00- 8:00. Soho Photo is at 15 White St in TriBeCa. The show will be up all of May. I hope you're able to stop by.
I spotted the green construction netting around PS 8 one evening as I was running, and headed back a few days later to see if there were some interesting photos there. Here are my two favorites.
