He will ignite your visual wisdom and inspire you to connect with nature. Ossian’s intensive workshop will focus on four key areas of the travel photographic experience:
- Getting off “Auto” and learning to use and advanced practice with ALL your key camera settings with a photographic master!
- Perception and Imaging: When you look at a place, what do you see and feel? What do you want your audience to see and feel?
- Composition: What are the basic proven compositional guidelines for creating winning photographs. Much like the classic rules of painting or creative writing, what is the visual “grammar” that a photographer must learn to better compose what he desires and to do so with better clarity.
- Capturing Light: Waiting, Chasing and Helping: What kinds of light can travel photographers anticipate and wait for? How to work with transient and serendipitous light that travel photographers have to work quickly to exploit. What skills and techniques for enhancing, reducing or controlling light can the photographers use.
