"The Art and Craft of Digital Photography" with Harold Davis
January 14th, 2014 - MPC Education Night** (See Note Below!)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Harold's presentation topic will be "The Art and Craft of Digital Photography." In the context of his work, he will show how understanding photography and post-production work together to inform the basis of a new art form. The next segment of the presentation will survey some of the sources of creativity, in the context of some Zen ways of thinking---such as the utility of seeing the world with "beginner's mind." He will demonstrate and provide and overview of some of his unique processing techniques. Finally, for those that are interested, he will discuss digital printmaking, and show some prints on interesting substrates, such as Moenkopi Unryu washi and Moab Slickrock Silver.
