John Harmon asked me, Thomas Walsh, to post this blog on a photographic study group that I am forming. Personal group meetings will be private, but there will be an open Facebook extension. Though this will not formally be a part of Flatirons Photo Club, several club members have expressed interest in being involved. The following is the first paragraph of the blog on my website, thomaswalshimagery.com. If it interests you, please click on the link at the end of this post for further information.
About eight months ago I was wondering what I could do to grow as much as possible as a photographic artist over a short period of time—a year for example. The project I settled on is an immersion into the technique, methodology, and vision of one master photographer per month for a year, with each artist having their own, distinct spirit and artistic voice. I have decided to open the study to a small number of people who will meet at my house for two hours on the first Wednesday of each month from 7 to 9 p.m. In addition, the program will be open to all photographers through a Facebook group. This may prove to be an ongoing project for the rest of my photographic life; in words oft attributed to Michelangelo aged 83, “I’m still learning.”
