Shooting the B Roll with Kelli Grant

Video streams yield more revenue on the web and mobile so more and more there is a thirst for still photographers to contribute video along with their stills to allow for multimedia story-telling. (Many media organizations don’t have the budget to send both a still and video shooter) Capturing atmospherics as well as details (The B Roll) as stills and video are vital in the editors toolbox to tell a compelling story. This practice is new to many photographers. It's another way of thinking and a skill in itself.

Learning from the Masters: How to Make Better Photographs with Daile Kaplan

Fine art enriches our lives in immeasurable ways and developing a visual literacy skill set is increasingly important. Looking at photography as a second career or serious hobby means taking your practice to the next level. Becoming familiar with iconic images and their backstories is both a learning and an inspirational experience. Having the right equipment is great but creating wonderful pictures is really about developing a personal vision. Understand how classical and contemporary photographs in both color and black-and-white can inspire you to make pictures that have resonance.

 Seminar 154

Motion as an Added Dimension in Still Photography with Joseph Meehan

A photograph is a representation of the three-dimensional real world translated into the two-dimensions of length and width. Photographers will often use different types of lighting or forms of composition to give the impression of a third dimension. There is, however, another way of introducing an additional visual dimension and that is by using the illusion of motion and the passage of time.This seminar explores some of the most effective ways of representing movement and the passage of time with a variety of human subjects and natural settings.

Location: Flagler Room

They can be stacked or moved to create your image composition. With layers, you can draw, edit, paste, and reposition elements on one layer without disturbing the others. Laurence will show you how to use layers to unleash you creative freedom.

In Color and Black-&-White, 50 Years Ago: The Battle of Hué by Catherine Leroy and Don McCullin with Robert Pledge

The young and daring French photographer was the only woman covering the war with cameras in those days. Her British colleague had alreay covered major conflicts around the globe. She chose to shoot the offensive mainly in color. He was already recognized master of black-&-white. Two approaches, two visions, but a common purpose: to show the devastating face of war. Robert Pledge, a friend of both photographers, will present the remarkable work of these two extraordinary witnesses of the Battle of Hué. Side-by-side.

Composition and Technique with George Schaub

© George Schaub

Effective images are very much a product of personal vision coupled with an understanding and application of the tools and techniques of the craft. This lecture concentrates on making that linkage and will inspire attendees to see with a ‘photographer’s eye.’ Topics and concepts will include: an awareness of the direction of light and ‘negative space’; the unique perspective gained by the use of various focal length lenses and points of view; using motion, both implicit and implied, to create visual scenarios; and more. Each topic will be amply illustrated with special attention given to applied techniques, including setting up your camera for candid street work so you can concentrate on the subject and not the settings.

Slow Shooting with Susan Currie

© Susan Currie

Take a pause from the Festival and join Photographer and Author Susan Currie for an “unplugged” outdoor shoot in the pastoral setting of the Society of Four Arts in Palm Beach.  Employing Currie’s signature creative approach, which fuses together mindfulness and simple prompts to enhance presence behind the lens, we’ll saunter through the botanical and sculpture gardens and take our cue from the natural world’s mild pace. In this field trip, we’ll experiment with the practice of “dharma art” as a tool for bringing a greater awareness to shooting person, place, and thing. Photographers of all levels will discover heightened detail and space in their focus range as they tap into the spiritual qualities of making photographs.

 Community Event 623

Second Impressions, Polaroid Process with John Reuter

Join John Reuter as he shares the now rare process of Polaroid Polacolor Image Transfer. John has been a pioneer in Polaroid experimentation since the mid 1970s. His early SX-70s gave way to early experiments in 4x5 Polacolor and eventually with the massive 20x24 camera. From 1988 through 1998 Reuter focused exclusively on these large format transfers, extending their scale through tiling to 42x52 inches. His reworking process transformed these images into photo/painting hybrids that are unique to the instant imaging sphere. John exhibited these images at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre this past summer. If you were unable to attend you will not want to miss this lecture.

Join a panel of seasoned and accomplished photojournalists, editors and educators as they try to unravel the mystery of the photographic grant.
