June’s Presenter and Judge,
Rob Knight ([masked]), has been a professional artist in Atlanta, Georgia for over twenty years. He is a photographer, educator and an award-winning tattoo artist. Rob is an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop Lightroom, and an experienced Lightroom instructor. Rob enjoys teaching photography subjects from basic Composition to High Dynamic Range (HDR) techniques.
He is best known for his nature and travel photo workshops, and he feels that hybrid nature photography is the next step for the genre. Rob’s work these days includes shooting video along with stills to create hybrid eScapes. “I think my students are going to be as excited as I am about hybrid nature photography,” Rob explains, “especially when they learn that they can use tools that they already have to add another layer of creativity and storytelling to their photography.”
For examples of Rob’s work, go to www.robknightphotography.com.
The topic of Rob’s presentation will be "An Introduction to Hybrid Photography."
The usual discussion about creating video with DSLR’s and Mirrorless cameras tends to focus on shooting video INSTEAD of still photographs. Hybrid photography is an idea based on using video clips to SUPPORT your still photography. I want to show you how you can add video into your creative process without buying a lot of expensive gear or learning new software. I will show you some examples of hybrid photography “eScapes,” and the tools that I use to create them. (You have most of the tools already!)
June’s competition theme is “Rain.” Show us your interpretation of “rain.” This can involve nearly any subject matter but must focus on rain as the primary theme and subject of the image. These pictures could include falling rain, rain in puddles, singing in the rain. Use your imagination! (Click here for a list of the competition themes for 2013.
