The Craft & Technique
and The Art & Vision”
Doug Bennett of Colorado Springs, Colorado, has learned that Landscape Photography must demonstrate not only mastery of craft and technique but also a mastery of vision and expression.
On Saturday, Sep 23rd, from 8:00 to 9:30, Doug will first share elements of photographic craft and technique essential to landscape photography and to making high quality large landscape prints for high end sales and for PPA Competition entries. In sharing these techniques, Doug will also discuss the underlying “whys”.
Then Doug will move to the heart of landscape photography . . . the goal of communicating your emotions and artistic vision in an image. Ansel Adams had it right when he said, “Photograph not only what you see, but also what you feel.” Great photography is about making images that connect with viewers making them feel something about the subject. Doug will share techniques to make your imagery communicate more, as well as explore the unconscious psychological factors that make for appealing landscape photography.
Doug’s love for landscape photography traces back to his childhood and family sightseeing vacations touring the western U.S. and Canada by car. These early experiences were further fueled by his father’s subscription to “Arizona Highways” magazine always leaving him in awe with its beautiful scenic images, particularly those of Josef and David Muench.
