I’m off to Europe this evening, to immerse myself in the beauty of Ireland and the UK. I’ve been feeling for years now that I want to photograph the landscape of Ireland with its dreamy/foggy/rainy atmosphere. It seems like my wish will be granted – rain and cloudy conditions predicted! I know, I know..it is April, and it is Ireland. I believe a castle or two may also await for me in Edinburgh, where I will be teaching my Art of Intuitive Photography class.
I will be bringing not only my digital camera, but my film camera as well. As many of my students know, I’m all about capturing a story or atmosphere. My creative heart pounds when I think of my fine art photography being documented in film. So, numerous rolls have been placed in my camera bag.
One of the things I love about shooting with film is the intention I give each image. It forces me to slow down, pay attention, connect and then capture. I learned much from photographing in film which I incorporate into my approach with my digital camera.
Off I go, following my intuitive voice and my heart to guide me to the images that want to be created.
I look forward sharing them with you upon my return!
