The B&H Event Space (420 9th Ave., Manhattan)
Many think that artistic talent and creativity are gifts that are inherent and natural. In reality, artistic vision and creativity is like any other skill – learned with the proper resources, hard work and dedication. Professional photographer, Eileen Rafferty will discuss the concept of creativity, explore practical exercises, and look at creative types and their working methods. Each student will be encouraged to identify where in the artistic process he/she is, and where he/she would each like to go. Through this class, you can begin to map out an artistic path and a clearer understanding of what creativity is to each of us, and how we can reach for it. Through a technical understanding of photography, we can begin to visualize what we want our photographs to be and say.
