Description

The program will first outline elements of photographic craft and technique essential to landscape photography and to making high quality large landscape prints for high-end sales and for PPA Competition entries.  The underlying “whys” behind these techniques will also be shared. The program will then turn to the heart of landscape photography – the goal of communicating emotions in an artistically rendered image.  Great landscape photography is about making images that connect with viewers making them feel something about the subject.   The program will introduce “Dynamic Symmetry” sharing knowledge in how to design and compose landscape images.  The program will also explore the unconscious psychological factors that make for appealing landscape photography and the role of inspiration in creating expressive landscape images.
