All Camera Committee meetings are open to the public and are FREE.

Please join us for an evening with photographer and photo instructor Ken Lee as he tells about his photographic philosophy and techniques.

We all instantly recognize good photographs when we see them. Then why is it so hard to create them with our cameras? Come find out the answer in Ken Lee’s presentation, Seeing 101.

You’ve heard of the photographer's eye. It’s the thing that lets some people make amazing photographs from scenes where others see nothing. And as much as technology can dress up mundane pictures, it’s creative vision that’s ultimately at the core of making images with impact. The question is whether this is a special talent you have to be born with or is it something you can acquire? Ken Lee knows that learning to speak the visual language fluently is a skill that anyone can learn and that creativity is muscle that grows through exercise. Ken calls these things the Art of Seeing and he’s made it his mission to help others to develop their creative vision. In Seeing 101, Ken shares his own ‘Aha Moment’ story when he suddenly understood the key to making good photographs, the principles behind his Whole Brain approach to learning photography, and plenty of practical tips to help you sharpen your photographer’s eye.

Read Ken's blog posts and see more of his images on The Art of Seeing ( Workshop and event information can be found there, too.
