Kudos Helen!

An alumni of my Kauai Photography workshop, Helen Grymaloski from Ontario, Canada, currently has an exhibit of her photos on display at the Dryden Regional Arts Council March 18 to April 6, 2013.

During her stay, Helen took a photo workshop with me and we spent a couple days photographing the island. We had a blast and you can see more about the workshop in my previous blog posts:

Kauai Photography Workshop Day 1: Mahaulepu Morning
Kauai Photography Workshop Day 2: North Shore

Kauai Photography Workshop Day 2 on the North Shore

I just finished giving a photo workshop for Helen on the North Shore of Kauai.

It is really great to spend time with someone lost in the photographic process.

The workshop environment allows for a wonderful process of immediate feedback and renewed attempts that accelerates the learning curve.

And the learning curve in photography is immense when we open up to the possibilities of photography as a way of seeing, a way of being in this world.

Last week we spent time for the workshop on the South Shore that can be seen in this previous post.

Kauai Photography Workshop Day 1 Mahaulepu Morning

The other day I spent the morning at Mahaulepu, Kauai photographing with Helen, here are a few of my photos from the journey.

While exploring the beauty and wonders of the South Shore of Kauai, our workshop focused her on photographic techniques, approaches to photography and the selection of photos.

Through the process, many questions come to mind.

Did I make the picture I just felt?
What did I want to portray?
What was I drawn to in the scene?
How to better capture the light as it feels in this place?

One of the great things about photographic education in the field is the instant feedback and growth that occurs understanding the trial and error while working towards photographic beauty.
