Join us for the presentation with Stephen Johnson "A Landscape Photographer in the Digital Age." Canon named Steve as one of their Explorers of Light in 2006 and sponsors speaking engagements with him around the country.
A Landscape Photographer in the Digital Age with Stephen Johnson
Spend this program with digital photography pioneer Stephen Johnson exploring landscape photography with the power of the new tools of the digital age. Emphasis will be on our newfound freedom to capture what we see, rather than what we can do to a photograph later. Traditional aesthetics blended with innovative techniques and deep digital experience will be the perspective from which Johnson will lecture. This lecture will be jam-packed with information and inspiration. Primary emphasis will be on empowering participants to get past technological hurdles and pursue their vision.
