The Art of Seeing: A Photography Workshop

Saturday, April 24 at 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM


Designed for adults

Sign up for this series of virtual meetings—inspired by the exhibition Anderson Scott: Photographs—to see your environment in a fresh way and learn how to create a visual masterpiece through the lens of your own digital camera or smartphone. Led by local photographer Warren Simons, this workshop will take place as three separate Zoom meetings where you will learn about Anderson Scott’s photography; discuss the art of seeing, how to view the world as your studio, and apply those techniques to your own photography; and engage in a friendly critique to review participants’ photos taken from prompts during the workshop.

About the Instructor

Warren Simons has practiced the art of seeing with the camera for nearly 20 years, and he has won numerous awards for his work. He grew up in Massachusetts, lived in New York City for 25 years, and now makes his home in Montgomery, AL. The world is full of visual surprises hiding in plain sight, but he does not search for them—his aim is to stay calm, move slowly, and look deeply.
