Do you ever journey out on an adventure to photograph only to return disappointed?
Landscape photography is one of the most popular genres today. But it takes patience and understanding of the natural world to do it well. This webinar will motivate you to venture outside.
With the 12 elements of a merit print in mind, you’ll learn to visualize and interpret the scene to capture and portray not just what you saw, but what you want the viewer to feel.
Be inspired to find the grand landscape as well as intimate details of nature that so many ignore. When these things are properly captured and displayed, you’ll have works of art to show off in homes, offices, and enter into competition.
This webinar will cover how to look at an image, and what to include or exclude to produce the image you want. We will investigate how different lens will give you the desired perspective, and how to use atmospheric conditions to create the mood you’ll love. We will also have a look at how the perspective changes with different lens that will ultimately alter how you look at the scene.
