My part:
I am much more interested in the feeling I gets when I look at an image than making sure it’s technically perfect. My aim with photography is to capture the emotion and feeling that I both sees and experiences at the time of the image. This class is really about letting go- about letting go of expectations and letting about of perfectionism. Learn how to press the shutter button when you feel it, even IF you are not in focus or perfectly composed. Discover how to use light, blur, and many other of my favorite techniques to capture more than a portrait or a candid moment, but how that moment actually FELT. See what can happen to your work when you give yourself permission to be more intuitive and free in your shooting.
