Photography As A Spiritual Practice: A Week with Ron Rosenstock


  • The Omega Institute 150 Lake Drive Rhinebeck, NY, 12572 United States

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.
