Photo Walks with Robert Manz

The "Summer Photo Walks” are a way to use your camera or your eyes to become conscious of light and to gain a more intimate connection with the beautiful shores and coves we experience here in the summer. These walks are more about engaging with your experience than the technique or the gear. Participants may bring a simple or a high-end camera, phone, or just yourself. Be prepared to connect with the light and the space and the water, and to gain a more intimate appreciation of them and your relationship with them..

We will use an online forum for information updates/organization of the photo walks, and also as a place for participants to post photos and add comments. At the end of the summer, we will have an online "show" of participants' work.

Summer Photo Walks with Robert Manz will meet on Thursdays, July 17, 24, 31, and August 7, 14 and 31, 2014.

Meeting times vary to offer experience of the light at particular locations and times of day. (See Summer Photo Walk schedule at http://www.robertmanz.net/summer-photowalks-2014) 
Space in each walk is limited, cost is $25 for each walk. Come for one, several or all the walks.
