Philip Blair's "Solitude: Snow & Ice"


From the artist: "My most recent work from late 2016 through 2018 are studies in loneliness & sadness, with a particular interest in remedying these. I always knew loneliness was not the same thing as hopelessness, yet there is often an uncomfortable semblance that they are. Being physically alone in wide-open space can cause a haunting agitation and even panic. Practiced solitude has the capability of bringing this into perspective: by enduring the discomfort, scenes of great peace and subtle beauty reveal themselves in these unlikely places. Calmness follows. The resulting visuals and images illustrate these journeys to the outer reaches and become unexpected messages of hope, counteragents to some of today's illusions of disconsolation and despair."

The Monochromatic Landscape with Philip Blair – Bellevue, WA


Join us for this 3 Day Intensive Workshop with Black & White Photographer Philip Blair! Students will be first guided through the history of black and white photography, to gain insight and inspiration for making a monochromatic image. With his intimate knowledge of Washington landscapes leading the group, this workshop will be focusing on the area of the very photogenic, Deception Pass! Known for its surprising balance between contrasting subject matters, it will give students the opportunities to capture snow covered natural and man-made subjects alike.

Philip will discuss how to bring out the best out of each participants images through an afternoon group editing session, using Lightroom and Photoshop. This will allow each participant to see the creative process from start to finish, when developing a monochromatic photograph. We will be discussing using curves, controlling density in the highlights and shadows and preparing your file for print. This workshop is designed for photographers who are comfortable with their camera and would like to develop their knowledge of the qualities of light and shadow, with the goal to extract the essence of the moment captured.
