This course is best suited for intermediate level shooters already familiar with basic DSLR controls. Q&A is strongly encouraged.
Dave will be presenting a diverse array of his favorite images, and providing step by step instructions on how and why these photographs were taken. You will also be shown progressions of his capture progress from initial exploration of a subject to the final archival and publication quality frame.
- Learn how to organize chaos in nature shots, and how to grab your viewer’s attention.
- You will look at examples of juxtaposition and subject isolation and what kind of impactful outcome these techniques can lead to.
- Want to know when to not take a photograph? We will review that concept and how it can strengthen your portfolio.
- Dave will also tackle the challenging subject of getting proper exposures in nature.
- Learn why you should always look up when you are getting ready to shoot wildlife, scenery, or foliage.
- See examples of utilizing different angles of sunlight to create dramatic and flattering images.
- Want to know what time of day is best to shoot at, or what weather caters to certain subject matter? Dave will explain how he interprets weather conditions and the impact that has on his goals for a daily shoot.
- Ever wonder what metering is and why it is so important to master? Dave will explain how to read your camera meter and how to predict the brightness of your photograph before you even press your shutter.
- Want to make sure you nail your shot? Bracket your exposure! Dave will display a visual progression of his own bracketing and how he selects his optimal RAW image that will eventually be post-processed.
