Are you bored with your photography? Or maybe you feel like you’re not really a creative person? Join outdoor photographer/author Colleen Miniuk for this educational and inspirational presentation where she’ll share the story of how she transformed from a photographer who liked to take “pretty” pictures into a visual artist who now seeks to make personally meaningful visual expressions from her life experiences.
Using her insights from her three artist-in-residencies and over 450 days in Acadia National Park, she’ll share how you can feed the Wallas model of creativity, tap into conceptual blending, and “steal like an artist” to collect new ideas and connect with the landscape in fresh ways. Learn how rely less on your external surroundings to provide the creative juice and more on your own knowledge, skills, and resources to confidently bring your own voice to every subject and scene, no matter where your camera takes you.
