The Value of Practice in Photographic Art
June 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm UTC+0 at ArtSpace $50
This 2.5 hour workshop provides insight for ensuring that exceptional photo opportunities aren’t missed! Momentary light shafts disappear; wildlife scampers and flies; rainbows fade; kids’ expressions change; and guides move us along. Photographers can drastically decrease the probability of “missing the shot” by employing some proven techniques to prepare for likely situations and by employing ‘practice exercises’ to become much more proficient in making rapid settings changes for unexpected situations. The content will include a proven method for developing a systematic and organized series of test and practice shots to produce the technical “experience” most likely needed to “get the shot,” when the opportunity comes to produce evocative art.
