Some notes, comments and experiences as the workshop manager at the Center for Photography at Woodstock....
Connie Imboden returned this past weekend to teach her class "Seeing the Nude in a New Way". Connie is most certainly qualified to instruct this type of course. She has spent over 20 years seeking out unique perspectives of the human form to photograph. She uses water and mirrors to alter the image of the nude and create metaphorical masterpieces.
The workshop started with an in depth discussion of naked vs. nude. Students shared their interpretations of these words and looked at artwork that related. They also shared their portfolios and Connie make suggestions regarding what projects they should take on over the weekend. We went to location both days with models. The weather was hard on us on Sunday but everyone pulled through and made some great work.
I have to say, Connie is amazing and I love spending time with her when she comes here.
