Photography As A Spiritual Practice: A Week with Ron Rosenstock

  • The Omega Institute

In this 6 day photographic workshop, we learn the techniques of vision that help us create great images and practice photography as a path of self-discovery. Through lectures, exercises in seeing, field work with a camera, and computer time, we delve into the process of creation and learn how to channel our vision into making meaningful photographs. 

As a foundation, we explore the rich tradition of fine art photography from Alfred Steiglitz, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Minor White, and Paul Caponigro. After taking pictures around Omega’s campus, we return to the classroom to learn simple digital techniques and basic post-processing. Then we print, mat a finished image, and discuss preparation methods for exhibitions.

From serious beginners to advanced photographers, anyone with a basic understanding of how to use camera is welcome.

Bring a digital camera and laptop (required). Please download the (free) “NIK Collection by Google” (google.com/nikcollection) for the workshop.

This workshop is offered at The Omega Institute.  Registration opens March 1, 2017.  For more information, please visit the Omega Institute at https://eomega.org/ or call 877.944.2002.  This is Course #1805-271 and the cost is $420.00.  It runs from June 4th through June 9th, 2017.

The Recent Work of Ron Rosenstock

  • The JCC - Jewish Community Center

Over the past year, Ron Rosenstock has been traveling more than ever and experiencing new places such as Greenland and Scotland as well as old places in new ways such as Tuscany and Ireland.  He will be exhibiting his latest images from his travels at the JCC in Worcester, MA beginning in January of 2017. 

These latest images really demonstrate Ron's philosophy that a meaningful photograph is not a photo of something but is something in itself.  A photograph that is only subject matter is seen and quickly reduced to a memory of the chosen subject.  A meaningful photograph is so much more. As with a meditative experience, there is no end to its possible depth. Not only is such a photograph an interpretation of the light that falls on the original subject matter, it is also a magical combination of that quality of light and a delicate balance achieved by light and dark areas in the image.  Perhaps there exists an ancient formula for the proportions of light and dark areas within a print required to evoke in the viewer a profound depth of meaning.  As with other forms of art through the ages, photography can connect us with this deeper meaning. Each of us seeks a direction in life without knowing the final destination. As artists and seekers we are drawn by a creative force to the Light within and so begin our life’s journey."

The Making of Black & White Photographs: A Talk with Ron Rosenstock

The Making of Black & White Photographs: A Talk with Ron Rosenstock

  • Springfield Photographic Society

The creation of black and white images is not as easy as you might think.  In fact, it is a completely different approach than color because of the play and effect of shadows.  Traditionally, black and white photography was always seen as a more artistic endeavor, but it can be an expression of place, of time and of feeling.  Not every image can be captured well as a black and white image, so learning how to recognize the subject for a black and white image is vital. 

This talk will help to illuminate the shadows and misconceptions about black and white photography with stunning, stark and even ethereal images by Ron Rosenstock from his more than 50 years behind the lens. 

This talk is November 16th at 7:00 at the Springfield Photographic Society in Springfield, MA.

  • The Vermont Center for Photography

Learn all the basics on developing your "show" ability for your photographic work.  One of the most difficult aspects of photographing is getting your work exhibited.  Ron will help answer all your questions about:

  • Preparing museum quality work: printing, matting and framing
  • Getting recommendations and why they're important
  • The nuts and bolts of hanging your photographs for maximum impact.  

This is a topic that is seldom discussed and yet is one of the most important to developing desire for your work.  Take your images to the next level with a show you can be proud of.

This is a presentation for the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro, VT.  This is a unique opportunity to meet Ron Rosenstock and learn from his more than 50 years of experience.

The Invisible Light: An Exhibition of Infrared Photographs by Ron Rosenstock

  • Temple Habonim

The Invisible Light is an exhibition of the photographs of Ron Rosenstock known for his spectacular infrared photographic work.

The exhibition is at the Gallery of the Temple Habonim in Barrington, Rhode Island.  Please join Ron at the opening on Sunday, November 6th from 1-3 PM.  The exhibition itself will be open to the public beginning on the 6th whenever the temple is open.

"Throughout history, humans have created exquisite structures where people gather to pray, and to seek inspiration and answers to our deepest questions. We also seek out inspiration in nature. Natural settings have been deemed sacred in numerous cultures since the dawn of creation.

While photographing in the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco, I commented to our guide that I could feel the impact of the prayers of the thousands of worshippers who had come there to pray. Later, it occurred to me that I was sensing the powerful energy that was there. I believe we all receive, or commune, with that aspect of ourselves that goes beyond our known senses, into the realm of spirit.

I photograph as a means of seeking that connection with spirit."

Coming Alive with Alive Photo Education

I believe in ALIVE Photo. I've been in photographic education for fifty years, and I’ve learned that photography is a creative medium, not a technical exercise. It’s about awareness, about being fully alive.

It's not about how much equipment you have or how many software programs you’ve mastered. It’s about vision and seeing fully. ALIVE is an exciting avenue I will use to help people be more aware.

It’s about finding out what has “meaning” in your life. It’s about going beyond yourself, finding the infinite within the finite.

You can become a part of the launch of this exciting online education platform called ALIVE Photo. World-class outdoor photography Pros like myself will bring you their BEST teaching from the field via this new online learning platform. In my case, from IRELAND. 

Join me for a snippet of one of my lessons and see what Alive is all about.  Click here to view.  For more information about joining to experience lessons from all the great landscape photographers, click here.

Pre-Visualizing the Final Image: Instructional Presentation at NANPA

  • Town and County Resort Hotel

The goal of this incredible presentation is to teach photographers to think about how they would like the final image to look before they have even exposed the image.  Minor White called it "pre-visualization".  We now can do that just as effectively with the digital tools available to us.  

Ron will show about twenty-five different untouched images. He’ll then explain in detail the few steps required to improve each image. The goal is to teach people to think about how they would like the final image to look before the image is exposed. With the digital tools available to us a photographer now can create that “pre-visualized” image in the camera. This efficient method saves the time required to correct your image with software.

Target audience: Photographers interested in fine art photography highlighting the work of Alfred Steiglitz, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams and Minor White.

This break-out session is open to photographers attending the NANPA (North American Nature Photographers Association) bi-annual summit in San Diego, CA. February 19-22, 2015.  Ron will be offering this breakout session on Friday and again on Saturday during the conference.  For more information or to register, please visit NANPA

Join master photographer Ron Rosenstock as he reflects on the art and craft of photography:

My photographs are an attempt to understand the process of creation. They represent a personal search for answers to which the questions as well as the answers are wordless. I regard photography not just as a way of seeing but as a way of living, a search or an exploration.

Drawing from his extensive work, Ron will share ways to develop and expand our own photographic vision as well as techniques for moving from “taking a photograph” to “making a photograph.”
