Wildlife and Nature Images with Impact!

A Seminar and Follow-up Critique

with John Vansteenberg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What You'll Learn

Gain the fundamental tools to get the image you see in your mind- into the camera. In short… you’ll learn how to create images with impact that are both technically and aesthetically powerful and learn to manage the five key elements in play in every photographic situation:

1.

Learn how to command the camera instead of guess at the results.

2.

Learn how to evaluate any scene you intend to photograph for light, subject, background, Point of View and sight lines and to command the viewer's eye to the point of impact in the image.

3.

 Learn how to select the right lens or lens settings.

4.

Learn how to 'find the light' and manage exposure.

5.

Learn how to emphasize or de-emphasize the elements in the scene to permit the viewer to engage the subject in the image more immediately.

 

Image Evaluation, Critique and Feedback

A Special Addition! John will host a 3 hour session on Sunday September 30th, where you’ll have the opportunity to get direct feedback on your images, composition and techniques. John will provide his input and advise you on your 10 selected images from your shoot from Saturday’s Test Drive and provide and input in a supportive and engaging group setting. You’ll also get advice on lens choices and get a chance to share your images and experiences with other Zoo Test Drive attendees. Immerse yourself in image evaluation and complete the circle of creation of the image!

 

One Special Grand Prize 16x20-Print drawing

for Seminar attendees and other great prizes will be

awarded in a raffle at Sundays’ Critique.
