“Jimmy, great workshop!! It was a load of fun being out at the boathouse and up on Chimney Rock. Thank you for your enthusiasm, joyful conversation, and artistic inspiration. You are very good at getting us to try new ways of seeing and taking photographs. It got me invigorated. I spent the last two nights going through my images, and I have to say, I am very happy with a number of them.

The Joy of Abstract Photography
We’ve all from time to time isolated a detail out of a landscape or the cityscape and been intrigued and inspired by the possibilities of this nonrepresentational way of expression. Abstract photography does not mean the same thing to everyone and creating an abstract image can often be easy: blurring a piece of a waterfall, the paint streaks on a weather-beaten door, or an extreme close-up of a flower. Yet, creating great abstract images takes imagination and practice. Although there are no official guidelines for making fine art abstractions, Jimmy will, in the course of this one-day seminar, open students’ eyes to the colors, patterns, rhythms, and textures that surround us in nature and to the challenge and rewards that derive from using our creative imagination to create stunning works of art.
