Lewis' Seminars & Field Workshops

 

WED 9 - 10:30 A.M.

Light, Color and Composition

Photography isn’t rocket science!  If you pay attention to the basics of light, color and composition and learn how to use these elements to your advantage, your photography will improve. Learn how to use color relations to help you compose, just as your line, shape and form. Taking good pictures isn’t a matter of equipment, it is a matter of seeing and capturing what you want to convey.  Stepping back and reinforcing how to get great captures will elevate your images to the next level.

Expanding your Creativity with Time/ Motion Techniques

Today’s outdoor photographer has many options for expanding your creativity beyond that of a simple exposure. Using techniques such as Long Exposures, both day and night, we can now make photographs that dazzle the viewer. By using strong neutral density filters in the day, we can capture motion in still images. Time lapse allows us to condense time and show a view of our world that is lost to the normal observer. In this session you will learn about different options for neutral density filters and how to calculate exposure when using them. You will learn how to shoot and process time lapse sequences.
