The Art of Intuitive Photography founder Mindy Véissid and her associate teachers instruct students to use their instincts and intuition to capture the world on digital film. During group classes, a series of outdoor photo exercises teaches beginning pupils how to wield their cameras and capture the ghost of Famous Original Ray before shutterbugs continue snapping photos throughout the streets of Manhattan. Amid ubiquitous bodegas, fashion-clad pedestrians, and soaring skyscrapers, pupils use their lenses to lift beauty from city sidewalks, ending their sessions with constructive compositional critiques of their resulting oeuvres. Alternatively, clients can opt for private classes customizable to any request and experience level. In either type of session, teachers aim to shift shutterbugs’ perceptions of their surroundings and attune their cameras with their hearts, translating everyday experience into gripping photos or angst-ridden finger paintings.
