Education - LANDSCAPES: Moments of Inspiration & Revelation by Mark Bowie (7:30 PM EDT)
Featuring the best of my latest still images, time-lapse sequences and video, I’ll share insights and techniques gleaned during moments of inspiration and revelation that viewers can use to dramatically improve their own imagery. Inspiration — when events coalesced to create heartfelt imagery, and revelation — when, in the light of personal discovery, I came across a specific strategy or technique of remarkable artistic effect. I’ll share the thought processes and field craft that took my imagery to another level:
Lessons in the Art of Seeing
Possibilities presented under specific weather & lighting
Using light and shadow to add depth and drama
Compositional choices – visual flow, image design, compelling vantage points
Exploring with telephoto lenses
White balance selection
Color and textural contrasts
Creating "images" of mood & feeling
What video and time-lapse can teach us about shooting stills
Painterly landscapes using impressionistic techniques, in-camera and beyond
I’ll also share processing lessons on creating a light path to guide viewers’ eyes, artistic dodging and burning, selective color and contrast control, and more.
It's an ambitious project. A monumental presentation. Fresh. Creative. Informative.
