Learning is a process of ups and downs that is littered with plateaus.
Three days of chasing the light on Cape Cod beaches and tidal flats has pushed me off of a plateau to a new way of seeing. Before attending Ron Wilson’s Landscape photography workshop, I was being driven nuts by a picture that I knew was sitting in the empty lot at the top of my street, but I couldn’t figure out how to make it work in the two dimensions of the photo. Now I know the answer…. and so much more.
It will take practice to put into use what I learned, but how wonderful to have this new visual language. If only all of my education had been this satisfying….
