Creating Great Digital Images in Nature

PHOTO WORKSHOP: Creating Great Digital Images in Nature - with master photographer Sean Arbabi


Date: Saturday, August 24th, 2013 • 2pm - 8pm

LocationFuture Light Digital Workshops (in Calumet Photographics), 2001 Bryant St, San Francisco, CA 94110, [masked]

Fees: $185


Description: Do you want to learn the ins and outs of producing high-quality nature and landscape images? Improve your understanding of your camera, composition, lighting, exposure, and macro photography in the field?  Join commercial photographer and author Sean Arbabi for a day of ideas, inspiration and clear instruction from a widely published twenty-year pro who can help you improve your photographic skills.

With Sean's new book, The Complete Guide to Nature Photography, out in stores, not only does he bring a vast amount of knowledge to the topic, his enthusiasm and charm, along with 30 years of experience, but he will also have copies to sell and sign to use as a great reference during and after the workshop.  Sean's dynamic powerpoint-style computer presentations offer a variety of image-taking ideas, fun techniques to create unique shots, as well as tips ‘n tricks for photographers of all levels.  You will come away inspired with extra tools to improve your skills.

Our class lecture will run from 2pm to 5pm.  After a break and a Q&A session, we will head to Baker Beach near the Golden Gate Bridge to capture sunset and put our newfound knowledge to the test.  You can bring any type of camera to this workshop, although the best option would be a DSLR with a few lenses, tripod, memory cards, and a solid carrying bag.  Please bring comfortable hiking or walking shoes and a warm jacket for our field session.


About Sean: As a full-time commercial photographer for over 20 years, Sean captures everything from adventure to wildlife, landscapes to people, travel to studio work and brings enthusiasm, 30 years of experience, powerful presentations, and high quality work to educate, entertain, and inspire.  Besides bringing a wealth of photographic knowledge and experience, Sean has a passion for turning what he sees in front of him into a powerful photograph that connects with others. His second book, The Complete Guide to Nature Photography, published by Random House in December 2011 is a testament of Sean's passion.  He brings his unique perspective on each topic with a touch of real world scenarios, as well as a philosophical angle to tap into his thought process and your unique view of the natural world.  In over 14 years of teaching photography in the field and online, Sean has the knack for helping students rise to another level with their work.

    Nature and landscape shooting is new to me so it was lots of info for newbie like me to absorb in one day. I don't mind repeating this course again or take his other courses because he is such a great instructor.
