Join us for our February General Meeting on Wednesday, the 1st, at 7pm. Our speaker will be Nic Stover, on “Looking Upon the Landscape With New Perspective”.
There are 5 types of scenes that are most commonly encountered by nature and landscape photographers. This presentation focuses on the techniques used to capture these images, what the vision was for the scene, and processing these images taking into account the variables that make each scene a little different than another.
Through this presentation you will learn ways to help you to discover how you could look at these distinct areas differently, see some simple ways to discover new places, and have greater confidence to express yourself in new ways.
We will review best practices for these 5 distinct types of scenes.
1. Exploring Arid Lands (Desert Photography)
2. Discovering the Wispy & Magical (Seascapes Photography)
3. Empowered by Grandeur (Grand Landscapes Photography)
4. The beauty of the small (Intimate Landscapes / Small Scenes photography)
5. Things that go Click in the Night (Night Photography)
For each of these different scenes we will review some best practices of in field capture, talk about processing methods, review special considerations for scene specific captures, review the challenges in fainter light and higher detail scenes, and so much more!
The last portion will be a demonstration of the power of the local adjustments’ vs the global adjustments and how can you align depth, texture, luminosity, sharpness, and focus on your processing and by using the tools in Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw.
These things we will review will help you to discover how you could be looking at these distinct areas differently, see some simple ways to discover new places, and have greater confidence to express yourself in new ways.
