Candela is an e-course about moving beyond a technical and mechanical approach to photography toward a deeply expressive personal practice. Who you are matters more than any tip or trick or piece of gear. At a certain point, it’s essential to look inward to discover what you really have to say as an artist. In Candela, we’ll draw powerful new inspiration from heartfelt personal inquiry as we shake up our seeing, abandon rules that constrain creativity, tackle stumbling blocks, and take brave new steps toward true artistry.
Photography can be a deep, transformational personal practice, a powerful form of self-expression and meaning making, a communion, a source of catharsis and healing, and an opportunity for rich, life-changing insight. It’s about so much more than f-stops. Your personality, your history, your perspective and experience – all of that forms the foundation of who you are as an artist. When we turn our attention away from the bells and whistles and toward what really matters, we develop a richer artistic practice.
What really matters? The people and places we love in the world, the experiences that make us laugh and cry and jump with delight, the things that connect us more deeply to life, love, and the human experience. This is the territory we need to explore as artists. Candela is designed to nurture significant artistic growth while helping photographers connect their personality to their art in meaningful new ways.
