Moments of Inspiration & Revelation


Featuring  the best of my latest still images, time-lapse sequences and video,  I’ll share insights and techniques gleaned during moments of inspiration  and revelation that viewers can use to dramatically improve their own  imagery.  Inspiration — when events coalesced to create heartfelt  imagery, and revelation — when, in the light of personal discovery, I  came across a specific strategy or technique of remarkable artistic  effect.  I’ll share the thought processes and field craft that took my imagery to another level:

Lessons in the Art of Seeing

  • Possibilities presented under specific weather & lighting

  • Using light and shadow to add depth and drama

  • Compositional choices – visual flow, image design, compelling vantage points

  • Exploring with telephoto lenses

  • White balance selection

  • Color and textural contrasts

  • Creating "images" of mood & feeling

  • What video and time-lapse can teach us about shooting stills

  • Painterly landscapes using impressionistic techniques, in-camera and beyond

I’ll  also share processing lessons on creating a light path to guide viewers’ eyes, artistic dodging and burning, selective color and contrast control, and more.

It's an ambitious project.  A monumental presentation.  Fresh.  Creative.  Informative.
