TEACHING / MENTORING PHOTOGRAPHY

Zen of Visualization Presentation at Marin Photo Club: Lisa Winston was very interesting. I have been an admirer of her spiritual mentor, Minor White, ever since reading his biography “rites and Passages” years ago. Lisa continues his exploration of merging photography and Eastern Religion beautifully. RR

Zen of Visualization Nature Outing – Where Spirit and Photography Meet:  Lisa organized a most useful and enjoyable Zen outing and her instructions were very helpful to me, particularly how focusing on ‘less’ can be ‘more.’ Thanks!  RD

Lisa opened my eyes to slowing down, looking a little deeper and being more deliberate with my photos. DB

Lisa helped me understand why I enjoy photography. Her  guidelines helped me connect to the overall scene and individual subjects. As a result my sense were enhanced and I saw things I would not have otherwise seen. JN

Very informative and good practice. I like the idea of slowing down, studying my subject, and asking ‘What do I want from it.’ Thanks Lisa. RB

Creative Audience Feedback – Thank you Lisa! The Creative Audience Feedback session was very enlightening. I enjoyed learning a new way to view images, a nice exercise to access creativity. DP

Lisa did a wonderful job in the Creative Feedback process! It really helped to get clear about the process of capturing and feeling the emption in an image. It will be fun to go out again with the  learned processes. HA

Eye of Innocence Workshop – I attended the Eye of Innocence workshop in San Francisco’s China Town. Lots of fun and a great time was had by all. Really a great way to get out and break-out of the mindset that you bring to snapping photos and becoming part of a journey to see the previously unseen with a new perspective.  As Chevy Chase noted in the movie Caddy Shack in relationship to golf before striking the ball; “Be the ball.” Here I think the key is to “Seeing fresh with a new perspective, to become the image in your minds eye first.” Many thanks for making this a refreshing, enjoyable and shared space of discovery.  PT

Wonderful. With Lisa’s guidance, I learned some techniques about using my camera and, more importantly, practiced seeing things differently. MA

OnLine Class – Embracing the Mystery Through Contemplative Photography: “I’m enjoying Lisa’s photo class a great deal–it’s exactly the approach to photography and connecting with the spirit of everything I was hoping it would be.” – SB
