Are you ready for an adventure? Grab your camera and let's get introspective!
“Introspective” is an eight-week, on-line course in which you will use your camera to explore your inner self. Each week, you will receive assignments challenging you to delve into your secrets, fears and joys. This is not a class about camera basics such as f-stops, apertures and shutter speeds...although links to helpful technical articles will be provided. This class is about digging deep into your core and capturing what you find there in photographs.
In the most basic sense, this class is about self portraits. Because, whether you choose to stay behind the camera or actually put yourself in the photographic frame, your images will reveal something about who you are and the discoveries you make as you proceed through this course. You will grow as a person and as an artist. You will celebrate and express the real you.
Photographic experience is not required and neither is expensive equipment. All you need is a camera and a desire to express yourself in new, honest and profound ways.
As artistic nudity is allowed, this is an 18+ group.
My name is Sarah.
I am an artist.
As an internationally-published fine art photographer and self portrait artist, I create what I like to call "visual poetry." Other-worldly, metaphoric photos which tell a story and convey emotion. Pieces which span the bridge between our conscious and unconscious mind.
Since my earliest days of clutching crayons and scribbling purple horsies with cascading manes, I have had a driving force commanding me to create. And I have done my best to obey.
I see the world in a mythic, symbolic way. Things are rarely what, or all, they appear to be. There are hidden meanings in every shadow. This quality comes out in my work...and it would whether I wished it or not. It is simply how I am.
I hope you enjoy this glimpse through the lens with which I view the world.
