Seeing Beauty in Photography: Vision and Craft
April 21, 2018 9am to 5pm
$195
Stephen Johnson Studios & Gallery.Pacifica, California

http://bit.ly/2JPKsuN

This seminar explores why some images move us, and others leave us cold? What makes a good photograph? What makes us pick up the camera at a particular moment? How do we work toward understanding our momentary visual curiosities and turn them into strong photographs? Why do we point the camera in one direction instead of another when the subject matter might be very similar? Why does a photographer take so long to make a photograph? What constitutes a beautiful print?

Talking about Art is hard. There either doesn’t seem to be words to describe the motivations or reactions, or there are too many words obfuscating meaning. Learning contemporary language and references of modern art criticism may help some understand art history, but “art-speak” is rarely a tongue I hear used by artists themselves. Plain talk, real dreams and real passions are what drive us forward, sometimes irrationally, sometimes with a plan. Photography fits neatly into this long and confused history.

Last two days for our March 2018 Featured Print. This Royal Flush Caladium from Shelldance Orchid Gardens grabbed my attention as a wonderful blend of complementary color moving from saturated to almost pastel.

Each month we offer a signed, original print, at a special price. This is a great opportunity to own a very affordable fine-art photograph. Orders are taken for a 30-day period, then printed and shipped within two weeks after the close. When it's over, it's over, these prints won't be available again at this price.

Kickstarter Life Form Exhibit Project
After many years of work, editing and printing, I am about to premiere my Life Form exhibition at the Viewpoint Gallery and Art Center in Sacramento in early March. Canon framed the first six prints for the show for their PhotoPlus display in New York last fall. The challenge now is funding the framing for the last ten prints for the exhibition.

To raise these funds, I’ve now launched my Life Form Exhibition Construction project on Kickstarter.

Thanks for reading and please pass it along.
