Creativity with Light


If you've ever traveled to an exotic location or dream about exploring one, this seminar will give you tools to capture the true adventures you experience more skillfully. National Geographic photographers Nevada Wier and Michael Clark will share strategies and techniques to help you become a more versatile photographer when you travel to new surroundings. Learn how to capture the essence of new cultures and people, take great action shots, and work with any type of light. With insights from the pros, you'll come away with a creative approach that brings more emotional impact to your images and enriches your journeys.

Topics

  • Photographing People in Foreign Cultures
    People can bring your adventures to life and sometimes best capture that once-in-a-lifetime quality of your journey. But approaching someone you don't know may feel intimidating, especially in a foreign culture. Learn how to make it happen with confidence and convey more emotional depth by adding that authentic human element.
  • Avoiding Travel Photgraphy Clinics
    Learn how to make any experience or location your own with shots that use an unexpected point of view, fresh angle, or unusual framing. Even iconic landscapes and adventures can seem new and surprising with the right thinking and techniques.
  • The Secret Power of Flash Photography
    Adding artificial lighting to your images can take them to a new level and open up a whole new world of artistic opportunities. Learn the basics of using both small and large flashes to augment available light and inject drama, whether you're inside a cave, a candlelit temple, or under stormy skies.
  • Action Photography
    Set yourself and your camera up to capture the decisive moment in any situation, from riding a wave to following a festival to catching a moonrise. Understanding and anticipating the action that's unfolding is just as important as having your camera ready to shoot. The pros share in detail how they make sure their mind and equipment is set to not miss the shot.
  • The Right Results, Any Time of Day
    Hear tricks and techniques for mastering low-light photography-dawn to dark, indoors and out. See how managing contrast and working with color creates provocative images that stand out from the crowd.

Santa Fe Workshops

June 6 - 7, 2015

Infrared photography is a way of creating images using the invisible infrared light that strikes your subject. Long-time infrared experimenter Nevada Wier calls it “invisible poetry,” because in the process of studying this technique, you move beyond your usual methods of photographing and discover a new way of seeing the world. Infrared is not only ideal for creating unusual, surreal landscapes, but it’s also startling for portrait and still life photography.

Infrared photography in the digital age is light years ahead of its film counterpart. Two factors have led to this unique niche becoming more accessible: first, the use of digital cameras that have been converted to render infrared light and, second, new digital workflow protocols.

In this two-day intensive, Nevada introduces you to digital infrared photography. Using converted cameras and Adobe software, you will learn the ins and outs of photographing and processing your images. After getting comfortable with the technique, you move into the creative and experimental side of making images with the infrared spectrum.

Historic Santa Fe and the neighboring town of Nambé, provide us with dramatic locations for our infrared explorations. By the end of this intensive you are a maven of invisible light and a maker of photographic poetry. In addition you come away with one print of your favorite image.
