We all recognize good pictures instantly, then why is it so hard to create them with our cameras? That's the question I'll be addressing in my presentation, Seeing 101.
You’ve heard of the Photographer's Eye. It’s the thing that lets some people create striking images from scenes where others see nothing. And as much as technology can dress up mundane pictures, it’s creative vision that’s at the core of making images with impact. The question is whether this is a special talent you have to be born with or is it something you can acquire?
I've learned that speaking the visual language fluently is a skill that anyone can learn and that creativity is a muscle that strengthens with exercise. I call these things the Art of Seeing and I've made it his mission to help others understand and develop their Photographer’s Eye. In Seeing 101, I'll share my own ‘Aha Moment’ story when I suddenly understood the key to making good photographs, the principles behind my Whole Brain approach to learning photography, and plenty of practical tips to help you sharpen your creative vision.
Hope to see you there,
