Did you get a new camera for Christmas? Are you making it your goal in 2019 to be more creative, social, learn something new, or just get outside? In 2019, I have decided to lead Photo Walks. I have been listening to Brene Brown who says, “Unused creativity is not benign. It metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgment, sorrow, shame.” To be wholehearted people, we must allow ourselves to create. Everyone has the ability to create. Photography has healed me in several ways. I want to share my passion for this art form with you and create a safe place for us to be vulnerable and use our creativity. On these walks, I will not be teaching photography. If you want to learn more about photography, I suggest taking a class with Scott Bean http://www.ufmprograms.org/ShowSchedule.awp?&Search=INSTRUCTOR&Target=U0NPVFRCRUFOMjEx&Title=Courses%20Taught%20by%20Scott%20Bean, checking out Creative Live https://www.creativelive.com, or ClickinMoms https://www.clickinmoms.com/cmu/. I will, however, be available to answer any questions you might have about photography. I plan to bring my kids with me on these walks and get them in the action too. You do not need to own a DSLR camera to attend the walk. It is all about supporting each other and your creative journey. I will be sharing the dates for the Photo Walk on Facebook and on my blog. If you are interested, make sure you are following me on Facebook so you do not miss out. https://www.facebook.com/amymengphotography/
Join us as we gather for the first MHK Photo Walk. We will meet 12/30/18 at 6pm-7pm at the fireplace at Blue Earth Plaza. Bring whatever camera you want to bring, iPhone to DSLR. Children are welcome. Our goal is to capture what we see in a creative way. You are welcome to join the Facebook Group MHK Photo at https://www.facebook.com/groups/mhkphoto/and share what you created.
