Join master photographer Ron Rosenstock as he presents his latest exhibition "Sacred Spaces" at the Springfield, MA Jewish Community Center. Including images of churches, temples, landscapes and nature, view images that create a sacred effect and remind us of the sacredness of both the inner and outer worlds.
"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."
The exhibition opens with a reception on November 18th from 5-7 PM. The exhibit will continue through January 6, 2019.
This fascinating exhibit combines infrared, color and black/white photographs of Ron's journeys around the globe. Featuring locations that are regular photography tour destinations of Ron's, you will be able to visualize the conversion of an incredible landscape or personal experience into an image that speaks to the heart as well as the mind. These are images of awe, power and intimacy.
The show will include images from Iceland, Greenland, the Czech Republic, Scotland, New Zealand, Tuscany, Venice and other unique destinations. Opening July 19th at the Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts, join Ron for the opening reception from 5-9 PM. The exhibit continues through August 9th.

Light Celebrating Itself: Exhibition of the Recent Work of Ron Rosenstock at the Providence Art Club
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 Providence Art Club from April 22nd through May 11th with an opening reception from 12 to 3 on April 22nd.
These latest images entitled "Light Celebrating Itself" 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 Exhibition Class of Ron Rosenstock will be presenting their work at The Sprinkler Factory Gallery in Worcester, MA. Come and see the variety of images that represent a world of ideas, inspired by Ron Rosenstock in this classroom setting once each month.
This exhibit begins with an opening reception on Saturday, April 7th from 5-8. The exhibit will remain open on Saturdays and Sundays throughout April and will end on Sunday, April 29th with a closing reception from 1-4PM.
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:
- Developing a theme and getting known for your theme
- Creating an audience, a topic Ron learned from Minor White
- Selecting locations
- Negotiating exhibition schedules
- Presenting exhibition ideas
- 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.
Then focus on the Art of Mat Cutting with Ron demonstrating and helping you perfect your mat cutting skills for your own photographs.

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.
Ron Rosenstock offers a fascinating insight into the world through his lens and the creation of photographic art. Photographic images are not meant to be just documentary, they are meant to evoke a feeling, a sensation, an experience. Travel the globe with Ron as he discusses his vision and the image of place as feeling.
Southgate Living Center in Shrewsbury on Monday, November 7th at 6:45.

"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."
Learn to see photographically. In this day-long workshop you will discover what qualities separate a fine photograph from a snapshot and gain a clearer understanding of what makes the work of such masters as Edward Weston and Ansel Adams so enduringly meaningful.
We will spend some time reviewing basic camera operation, do an exercise to sharpen your own vision, then consider the process of developing a theme as a way to direct your photographic energies. You will also see how the initial print is adjusted through digital darkroom techniques, using a variety of common software applications, to become the finished print.
All levels of experience are welcome.

Discover what qualities separate a fine photograph, one that is enduringly meaningful from those considered ordinary and quickly forgotten. Gain new understanding about the techniques that worked for such masters as Edward Weston and Ansel Adams, that may help you improve and refine your own approach to image making.
We will spend time doing an image sharpening exercise and then continue on to discuss the importance of developing a theme as a way to direct your work, rather than just moving in a haphazard direction.
The essentials required for getting to the final goal, that of a cohesive body of work will be covered; starting with basic camera controls and moving on to digital techniques for fine print adjustments, use of common software applications, and where best to direct your creative energies.

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.
