Seeing with Your Heart and Mind: Meeting Your Artistic Vision (Jan Tyler)
Limited Capacity seats available

In this program with Jan Tyler you will be encouraged to think and feel like an artist as you use the full realm of your senses to observe the world. You will explore creative in-camera techniques to help you communicate your vision to others. You will also gather tools for future post processing that will help you fulfill your artistic vision. Students are encouraged to bring creative lens options such as a Lensbaby or macro lens if they desire.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn to use your heart and mind to “see” the world instead of relying solely your eyes; learn to use all of your senses to enhance the overall artistic vision of an image.
2. Learn to create images that “speak” to the viewer and how the photographer and/or the subject felt in the created image while eliciting an emotional response from the viewer.
3. Add emotional depth to landscapes and macro work; create meaningful,
thought-provoking, and emotive portraiture.
4. Learn to incorporate lens selection as a means to enhance their artistic vision. (While the use of a Lensbaby is not required, it is encouraged.)
5. Learn to use creative in-camera techniques to reach your artistic vision.
6. Discuss how to create images that can be used as textures and overlays to help enhance your artistic visions in future post processing.

Field Trip - Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard (Styled Shoot and Dinner)
Limited Capacity seats available

MEET AT 4:30 AT MARRIOTT BUS DEPARTURE ZONE.
Join us for this premium field trip which will include shooting styled models, a delicious gourmet dinner, and time to socialize while experiencing the natural beauty of Texas!

The beautiful Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard (https://www.sandyoaks.com/) will be the setting for an evening of shooting with a variety of styled models and photography leaders, as well as dinner and time to socialize while strolling the grounds of this beautiful olive orchard ranch. No matter what genre you shoot or where you are on your photography journey, you will cherish this time to put into practice everything that you learned at Click Away, spend time with new and old friends, and shoot styled models in a gorgeous and unique location unlike what most of us get to experience back home.

The schedule and lineup includes styled shooting from 5:30pm-7:30pm (during gorgeous golden hour light!) with the following leaders and model groups:

Senior girl - led by Monica Wilkinson
Mother and daughter - led by Kellie Bieser
Sisters - led by Kristy Dooley
Brothers - led by Kristin Dokoza 
Couple - led by Michelle Turner

Models will be styled to help ensure that you shoot stunning, portfolio quality images that look amazing! Attendee numbers will be kept low (just 53 total, so approximately 10 per model group at any given time) so that you get ample opportunity to rotate through and photograph each of the model groups. The Olive Orchard offers many shooting locations and backdrops to create a variety of imagery, all during stunning golden hour light, so you can walk away with gorgeous, varied, and truly unique photos. After the styled shoot, we'll sit down for dinner, wine, and socializing (which is sure to include new connections, forming of friendships, and lots of laughter!). Food and beverages will include:

- A seasonal garden salad fresh from Sandy Oak's garden
- Chicken Puttanesca with Polenta (Puttanesca is an Italian tomato sauce with olives and capers)
- Olive Oil Cake Parfait with pomegranate, strawberry sauce with whipped cream
- Two glasses of Fall Creek Wine (Choice of red or white)
- Plus, bread, water, iced tea and coffee

About Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard:
One of the first commercial olive orchards in Texas, Sandy Oaks is 20 minutes south of San Antonio. While best known for the olive trees, olive oil and the various olive oil and olive leaf based skin care products it produces, Sandy Oaks is also celebrated for its emphasis on hospitality and educating the public on the benefits and various uses of olive oil. The main orchard itself covers a 40-acre tract of the ranch, with some 11,000 trees planted among the massive live oaks dotting the property. A nursery holds up to 10,000 or more olive seedlings and shoots at any one time. Sandy stocks the trees to expand her orchard and to sell to others who would like to join in the adventure of growing olive trees. 

Seating/Participation is very limited for the special premium field trip with styled shooting so reserve your spot before it is sold out!
