I will be learning to see with quiet eyes next week at the John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC.
I can't wait to spend a whole week immersed in photography -- all day, every day. I hope to learn new skills, and yes, to improve how I see the world in a photographic sense.
Here's info. about the class: Seeing with Quiet Eyes Class at the Folk School, and here's a post the instructor, Catherine Anderson, wrote about a similar workshop she gave called Seeing with Quiet Eyes: Photography as Meditation Retreat.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate, and be alternately sunny, rainy, foggy ... and not too hot. It'll be just past the summer solstice out in the N.C. mountains, so the light will last a long time.
