Rave Reviews for Less is More

 

The lessons are complete, the information dispersed and the overwhelming reviews for

Less is More are in…a total success (see below)!

Originally, the class was to be taught in a conventional classroom complete with a field trip with

lesson prompts. The Covid-19 pandemic forced us inside, isolated and online

through the Zoom platform.

I cannot begin to say how much the research and preparation for this class has propelled my

current approach to photography. We all have the tendency to include more than is

necessary to get your point across. This is distracting and can create confusion.

The purpose of the class was to identify the subject, and through technical and

creative controls, include only the essential. This journey to seeing the whole

in a microcosm of a scene has been inspiring and motivating for me. In this time of social

isolation, the area close to where I live has produced a treasure of potential exploration

and image possibilities.

I can say the same for my students, examples of whose work follows. Whether finding

inspiration in  their kitchens or backyards, I am proud of their growth in grasping the

concepts of minimalism and essence in two short weeks. The elements of line, texture, color,

space and storytelling are evident in the thoughtful compositions in response to the

assignments. The bridge to making a photo instead of taking one has been crossed.

Reviews and Testimonials

What a great class! I hope you'll continue to teach this way if we're social distancing for the long haul. Your assignments are so creative!

So very much to ponder and learn.

I want to say how much I enjoyed this class. It’s opened my eyes to seeing photos in a different manner. It also explained why I like taking

certain photos. Thanks for all you did this time. You have gone above and beyond what was expected bringing the class online.

Thank you for helping me understand why it is that there are some photos I want to look at for a long time, over time, and others not so

much. Maybe it's because seeing the "essence" is what draws the emotional/intellectual/aesthetic connection between the viewer and the

image.

This class has changed my thinking about seeing in a major way. Now to execute it! 😨

Thank you so much!

Cindy, I always leave your class knowing one more time what a gift you have in transferring your passion and talent to those you teach.

 It is such a gift!
