The Creative Eye: Composition and learning how to look at a subject of interest from different points of view is a necessity for producing interesting and different photographs.
"The Creative Eye" goal is to learn how to "see the world around us" in a photographically creative way. Some of us have a natural ability to take what we see with our eyes and mental filters, and get the camera to ‘see’ in that similar way. Others have to work at it. This is not a lecture series; rather the sharing of images with a common theme that we will take, bring back, and share with each other. We will have different 'projects' each month that we hope will train our eyes.
From simple topics like 'Starts with T' to more challenging ones such as 'Surprise' or 'Explore,' the variety of subjects is a constant brain teaser. Not only does the routine test imagination and creativity, it also provides an opportunity to try out a variety of camera settings and photography techniques.
It is refreshing that this is NOT a competition; there are no rules, no winners or losers. It's a challenge that is entirely personal.
