“Using Filters for Landscape Photography” presented by Mike Dooley
As photographers, I think it is safe to say that we are all excited to see our work in it final format. Whether that format is a print hanging on a wall, or a digital image shared on our smart phones, we strive to create images that communicate what we felt in that moment we clicked the shutter.

Regardless of the final format, the quality of your final image is highly dependent on the quality of your initial capture. As a landscape photographer, I rely on my filters to help me capture the best image possible, and the image that is closest to the scene that my eye sees before me.

Join me for a talk on the use of filters in landscape photography. We will talk about the different types of filters, like Neutral Density filters, graduated filters and polarizers, how to attach them, when to use them, and just as important - when NOT to use them.

Photograph Critique by Mike Rice

February 12th- “Photography as A Spiritual Practice” 
We will learn the techniques of vision that will help us to create meaningful images and to practice photography as a path to self-discovery. With the aid of a specially prepared sideshow, and lectures with many references to the masters of photography (Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Minor White and Paul Caponigro) Ron Rosenstock will communicate the common thread of the creative process. 

From Ron’s recent artist Statement:
“Through photography I have sought to explore the space between the finite and the infinite. For me, photography is on the borderline, the veil between the known and the unknown….a search for what is beyond the doorway of perception. What draws me---what speaks to me----is the mystery."

Ron Rosenstock

Ron Rosenstock is a photographer and a teacher of photography who studied with Minor White in private workshops from 1967 to 1973.  His first one-person exhibit was in the Creative Photography Gallery at M.I.T. in 1972. Since that time Ron has had more than 150 exhibits in museums and galleries in the United States and abroad. He has published six books that feature his photographs and has written numerous articles for photography magazines worldwide..
Ron has been teaching photographic vision and photography as a spiritual practice since 1969. He says: “My photographs are an attempt to understand the process of creation. They represent a personal search for answers to which the questions as well as the answers are wordless.  I regard photography not just as a way of seeing but as a way of living, a search or an exploration.”
Ron has led international photography tours in Ireland, Iceland, Greenland, Italy, Scotland, Cuba, Bhutan, Peru, the Czech Republic and Vinalhaven, Maine, USA.  He has also been a member of the United States State Department’s Art for Embassies program since 1998.
