Finding Your Artistic Side
Dennis Hammon, M. Photog. Cr. CPP, F-ASP
Setting yourself apart from the crowd and creating a niche for your artistic work is always a struggle in today’s world. Landscape photography is a niche that Dennis Hammon has been working in and has pursued to push his desire to capture the wonders of this world. During the early morning and afternoons of the workshop, you will be guided to locations and be taught and directed on how to create fine art landscape images. From exposure of the images to learning and refining your compositional skills, you will learn skills that will aid you creating images that people will be proud to display in their homes and offices. Landscape photography is more than just showing up to a location and clicking the shutter. Pre-visualization and mental preparation is needed to understand the scene before you.
Capturing the image is only the beginning of the process. The second class will be held during the down time in the middle of the day and evenings. This second class will be in conjunction, along with the location and photographic sessions. Taking images from the on location sessions, Dennis will demonstrate his techniques in processing his images that have help him define his creative style. You will be asked to process your images, and present them for critiques and discussion along with the rest of the class. Additional class time will be spent on studying and lecture to better understanding the principals of landscape photography, composition, marketing and selling your fine art images.
To make this class a success, the following equipment is recommended to bring:
Camera/s-that you are familiar with.
