Digital Photography: Capturing the Light

Aug 1 - 6, 2014

Presented by: Charles Steinberg

  • Photography
  • The Arts


Master the magic of light, techniques of composition, and telling of story. Make quantum leaps in skill and creativity with a fun, supportive group. Follow the magical light of Cortes Island and create a personal body of work.
Experience the ecstasy of living each breath with your camera, in a stunning location, amid inspired peers. Train your eyes to always be watching the light, your mind’s eye to be pre-visualizing, your heart clarifying intentions, and your brain sorting technological adjustments.
Sessions will be spent out taking pictures, finding art in nature, reviewing new areas of learning, supporting each other’s growth and gently and constructively critiquing each other’s work. We will visit deep secret places in the forest, beautiful beaches at sunrise and sunset, the signature Hollyhock Garden and sites on campus and the island where people and activities blend into fascinating images.
New and experienced photographers welcome.
Charles Steinberg is a published photographer who teaches in Colorado and BC. He has published several beautiful books including "Hollyhock Moments" and "From Point and Shoot to Brilliant Photography". He is a Hollyhock co-founder whose photos are often found in the Hollyhock catalogue.
“Studying photography with Charles is a pure delight! In only a few lessons I have learned everything from how to tell a story through my pictures to how to make a friend of my camera and computer. My images now capture the essence and spirit of my vision.” – past participant
