Lecture on Photography
I got to attend a lecture given by the brilliant photog, Bill Fortney entitled "Learning to See Photographically". What a great 2 1/2 hours. I loved every WORD! I am always so blind to everything around me. I have always known that but looking at all of those fabulous (298) examples of his..breathtaking. I have no imagination but right now, I am inspired. He was talking about the craft of photography to some small degree (hardware, settings, etc) but he emphasized the ART of photography in the lecture. Seeing art and interest in the simplest of things..things I have always just passed on by, and things I just see and take no note of! What a night. Loved it. It opened my eyes so much that looking at a storm grate on the way to the car got my interest. I also loved that he said whatever light you happen to be in (when things change from the ideal) make something good from that light. Look until you find what works in it, to photograph.
Horst, you would have LOVED this presentation. The guy has a great personality too. Very humble (for real, not fake) and so filled with ideas and information that you can use.
