Photographing the Designed and Built Environment

This session covers an overview of how to photograph anything and everything that is constructed by humans . . . from buildings to bridges and from fences to telephone poles. We will cover the differences between human vision and how the camera “sees.” If you want to try to document what you think you see, then this session will give you some key principles to consider.

The Science and Art of Photographic “Composition”

Have you found that the more you read photography books, the more you read the same things over and over again? We will explore how a knowledge of the Arts and Sciences can and will enhance your photography. We will go beyond the popular “rules” of composition and we will discuss how people perceive the world around them.

Story Telling with “Street and Travel” Photography

This session will look at examples of capturing a “slice of life” and a “sense of place in your photographs. We will talk about how to include people in your travel photography, especially if you are not fond of sticking your camera in front of a stranger! This is for shy photographers who still want to capture the “decisive moment.”

Photographic Education . . . Raising the Bar

I am passionate about teaching photography. I want my presentations to go beyond displaying great images. My mission is to inspire folks to be able to create images that they love. This session will discuss how to actually learn and grow as a photographer. I will discuss the process of photography from Pre-visualization through Re-visualization. I will show some examples of how post processing software can take your images to the next level.
