Modern Landscape with Alan Winslow

Critique Thursday 12:00pm to 1:00 pm

Document the landscape of Florida's unique flora and fauna on a journey through the Grassy Waters Everglades Preserve, a 20 square mile wetland habitat, with photographer/educator Winslow. Its uniquely beautiful prairies, marshes, and canals offer opportunities to create powerful and intimate landscape photographs. Additionally, there is potential to observe and photograph many wildlife species, including birds, such as bald eagles, herons and snail kites, as well as turtles and alligators.  Push your creativity to a new level as you focus on alternative framing and compositions; assess lighting, color and contrast conditions, and creative camera control.

 Seminar 101

Pointing Your Camera In The Other Direction with Tim Rasmussen

Finding pictures and stories others miss. In every story, idea, or assignment there are the obvious pictures...the ones right in front of you...and right in front of every other photographer. Looking for photographs that change how we see a story requires a lot more work, effort and thinking. You really have to take risks and be able to see around corners so you can be in a position to make a photograph that others overlook or miss altogether.

Location: Flagler Room

 Seminar 102

Fine Art Infrared (IR) Photography in the Digital Era with Joseph Meehan

The ability of digital cameras to record IR light has revolutionized the capture and processing of IR images. Modified cameras allow the photographer a wider range of tonal choices when translating from IR color to monochrome similar to the way color filters control tonality in B&W film. All these options have resulted in an increased interest in IR photography and a greater appreciation of this form of visual expression. Joseph Meehan will first briefly explain the way IR light captures the world and how to identify potential settings.

Location: Flagler Room

 Community Event 602

Not Your Father’s Wall Street Journal with Timmy Huynh

At one time, the “old” Wall Street Journal had no photographs, only “hedcuts” which looked like engravings or line illustrations. We’ve come a long way since then as the “new” Wall Street Journal displays news photography as well (or better) than their traditional rivals on the newsstands. But as Huynh will show, the WSJ now also has an impressive and vital online presence in what can easily be described as “Not Your Father’s Wall Street Journal.”
