Cameras At The Confluence: Photographer Meetup “Exploring Landscapes”

Tues., October 24th , 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Trisha Peters owner of Peters Portrait Art will be your host for this month’s program.

Each month “Cameras At The Confluence” will feature a segment of National Geographic Masters of Photography video course, then have some time to talk and share.

This month’s video learning segment “Exploring Landscapes” is presented by Jim Richardson, a National Geographic landscape photographer who specializes in global environmental issues and landscapes.  We will explore light and composition techniques that we can use to create dynamic images that capture the story that we would like to tell with our landscape photography.

This is a free event open to area photographers. No registration required.

National Geographic Masters of Photography course goes inside the creative process of the industry’s most sought-after photographers as they reveal their working methods, from the planning stages of an assignment through the execution.

The best way to learn any art form, including the art of photography, is by watching a master artist at work. By observing the creative process of a photographer who has truly mastered the trade, you can gain rich insight into how to approach your own images, boost your confidence as you work, and improve your photographs by learning skills that are rarely shared or taught in an ordinary classroom.Even if you’re already a skilled photographer or simply an appreciator of art, the gripping images and stories these esteemed experts share make the experience highly worthwhile. You’ll gain insight on the elaborate process National Geographic photographers go through—both in the technical and artistic sense—from researching and planning a shoot to working a scene and waiting, often for hours, for the right elements to come together.
