Omega Workshop Photos with Doug Beasley

Omega workshop
“A Rolling Stone . . .”

I just finished culling and processing the photos I took during this workshop. Of the 230 photos I made, I selected 25. They appear in my gallery in the order I shot them. Since we are all completely dependent on our natural environment I processed them with a high contrast, edgy, look, although there are one or two exceptions with a softer look. I like rocks and dead wood because they really form and texture. The former are relatively permanent, while the latter are wabi sabi (Japanese for transient). They make nice environmental contrasts.

I made these photos on the basis of several photo assignments Doug gave us. Since there were about 20 of us in the workshop, there are 20 very different versions of our workshop experience. I’m sure they will share many of their shots.

In any event, I’ll continue to develop my spiritual (not religious) connection with my subjects. Any thoughts or photos you have would be more than welcome.


Author: Stephen Fielding Images

I'm a retired medical sociologist from the University of Rochester. My publishing experience includes a wide variety of academic articles and a book, "The Practice of Uncertainty" (1999). The mission of my blog is to provide accounts of the natural environment, including photos, in order to raise awareness of its fragility and the impact of climate change. Climate change is the greatest challenge currently faced by humanity. I occasionally write about the impact of climate change using the principles of social scientific writing. To do this I read reputable books and articles on the topic. So when I make statements about climate change you will see a link taking you to the scientific source(s) of the information I provide. As for my independently published photobooks, each has gone through several layers of editing and peer review for both readability and accuracy. This is not to say that everything I say is accurate. Even the New York Times makes mistakes. So, if you find something that is factually incorrect, let me know. I hope you find reading my blog a positive experience. If you do, please encourage your family and friends to have a look. Best wishes, -Steve
