Getting Creative with Photography
Learn about the creative process of photography by studying the work of other photographers
Photography is about more than just reproducing whatever the photographer sees. It also offers a powerful opportunity for creativity and self-expression. In this class, Angela Maloney will share her own work and that of other photographers, discussing the thought process and the process of creating the images. She will show how their photographs go beyond simply reproducing what was in front of the photographer, thereby showing the class how they can learn to produce similarly thought provoking, creative, and emotive images.
This class can be enjoyed two ways. It is an opportunity to look at good photos and have a nice conversation about them. But it is also a look inside the mind and the creative process of your instructor, a gallery represented photographer, and a lesson on creating photographic art.
This class is suitable for all experience levels. No cameras are needed.

Angela Maloney is a art-oriented photographer. In her first career, she was an attorney. In her second, she was a Foreign Service Officer at the US Department of State until an injury suffered serving overseas resulted in her medical retirement. Photography is her third act. Her work has been published multiple times in the United States and Europe. In addition, she has been the subject of interviews and articles. She speaks English fluently and—at least according to the State Department—speaks Spanish at a professional level as well. She is passionate about photography, viewing it as an opportunity for self-expression. Her mantra is to take photos “about” things instead of taking photos “of” things. She has served as the North America Ambassador coordinator for Nature First, a global nonprofit that promotes responsible practices in nature photography. She remains a Nature First member as well as a member of the Professional Photographers of America, American Photographic Artists, and the North American Nature Photography Association. She is a past member of the Fredericksburg Street Photography Collective. She is a cofounder of the soon-to-be-opened Responsible Photography Collective.
