Keynote and Full Day Seminar with Seth Resnick at 2012 Nature Visions – November 9-11 Manassas, Virginia

October 22nd, 2012 |  by No comments

I am very excited to present the Keynote at 2012 Nature Visions on November 10th  and a full day seminar on November 9th. Nature Visions is s Mid- Atlantic Photography Association Exposition held in Manassas, Virginia. The concept of the expo is to promote and advance the appreciation of photography in the Mid-Atlantic Region and elsewhere,  encourage the participation in photography by individuals with all levels of experience and all areas of photographic interest, and increase the appreciation of photographic art within the community.

The venue is the Hylton Performing Arts Center  an elegantly styled opera house with a 100 foot stage at George Mason University – Prince William County Campus 10960 George Mason Circle, Manassas, VA 20110

FULL DAY SEMINAR WITH SETH RESNICK 

Friday November 9th, 2012 from 9-5

SEEING COLOR: CREATING DYNAMIC KILLER IMAGES

 

“Creating Dynamic Killer images is a creative program that seeks to reinvigorate your capacity for creativity. We concentrate on techniques that improve the overall photographic process, from concept to output. Creativity is fueled by experiences, sights, sounds and smells. Sitting still won’t bring new ideas in; experimenting and trying new things will jog your creativity. Practice, practice, practice. Creativity is like a muscle that you need to flex regularly. In much the same way that our bodies get out of shape without using our muscles, as a photographer our cognitive and visual capabilities decrease if we try new things and if we don’t shoot images almost every day. As a professional photographer I have the luxury of being able to carry a camera every day and thus always tweaking my skills but many folks don’t have this luxury and if they haven’t shot pictures in a while they feel visually about the same as not exercising. Becoming a better photographer is really about training yourself to make your minds eye more creative. It’s about how to look for, see, and create better images. While some of this is intuitive other parts of this take training. Rather than just taking pictures this seminar will help refine your creative vision and help you create more effective and compelling images bringing your creativity to a new level.

SETH RESNICK KEYNOTE PRESENTATION

Keynote Nov. 10th  (4:30PM – 6:30 PM)

How do you rejuvenate yourself and get excited once again about picking up your camera? This event with Seth Resnick may be just what the doctor ordered!Join us as Seth shares anecdotes on creating some of his favorite images that have taken him to every corner of the world. As Seth shows his work he will explain what drove him to tackle these assignments and how he executed them.

Photographic Workshop in Iceland with Seth Resnick August 7-13, 2011

April 11th, 2011 |  by No comments

Sunset at Grotta Lighthouse in Reykjavík the largest city of Iceland.

 

Come to Iceland with Seth Resnick and Focus on Nature and experience a glacier hike, volcanos, dramatic waterfalls, glacial lagoons filled with icebergs, geothermal vents through frozen landscapes and even multi-colored hot springs.

 

FocusOnNature is guided by Icelandic natives, with a lifelong experience, connection, and commitment to the place and its culture. Fluent in both the native tongue and its ways, you simply can’t find better guides, who mix high adventure and gracious hospitality. Their local knowledge and insider information will send you along hidden byways where you’ll find people and places you’d never find on your own. And their passion is to serve and make your stay enjoyable and unforgettable.

 

This workshop that seeks to reinvigorate your capacity for creativity. We concentrate on techniques that improve the overall photographic process, from concept to output.

Sunrise in the Port of Reykjavík the largest city of Iceland. Its latitude at 64°08' N makes it the world's northernmost capital of a sovereign state. It is located in southwestern Iceland, on the southern shore of Faxaflói Bay. With a population of over 200,000 in the Greater Reykjavik Area, it is the heart of Iceland's economic and governmental activity. Reykjavík is believed to be the location of the first permanent settlement in Iceland, which is said to have established around 870. The city was founded in 1786 as an official trading town and grew steadily over the next decades, as it transformed into a regional and later national centre of commerce, population and governmental activities. Its location, only slightly south of the Arctic Circle, receives only four hours of daylight on the shortest day in the depth of winter; during the summer the nights are almost as bright as the days. Despite its extreme north Atlantic location, Reykjavík is much warmer than most locations at a similar latitude. The average mid-winter temperatures are not significantly lower than those in New York City.

Anyone who was in Seth’s Iceland workshop with Focus on Nature last year will tell you that it was one of the best trips they have ever been on. It rocked and we are going to do it again.

 

“You will jumping into the deep end of the pool with Seth. None stop action, adventures, teaching, discussions. A total work-win-fun package I guarantee”

This is a creative workshop designed to push you to the limits to create the best possible images.

 

Creativity is fueled by experiences, sights, sounds and smells.  Sitting still won’t bring new ideas in; experimenting and trying new things will jog your creativity. Practice, practice, practice. Creativity is like a muscle that you need to flex regularly. In much the same way that our bodies get out of shape without using our muscles, as a photographer our cognitive and visual capabilities decrease if we try new things and if we don’t shoot images almost every day.

 

As a professional photographer I have the luxury of being able to carry a camera every day and thus always tweaking my skills but many folks don’t have this luxury and if they haven’t shot pictures in a while they feel visually about the same as not exercising. Becoming a better photographer is really about training yourself to make your minds eye more creative. It’s about how to look for, see, and create better images. While some of this is intuitive other parts of this take training.

Steel in the Port of Reykjavík

 

Rather than just taking pictures this workshop will help refine your creative vision and help you create more effective and compelling images bringing your creativity to a new level.

 

The majority of the workshop will be spent following the light from very early to very late and shooting the dramatic landscape of Iceland. Each photographer will learn how to create what they see in their mind’s eye, which you wouldn’t see if you were standing next to them. We will concentrate on creating strong color imagery and strong graphics that will stand the test of time. In our non-shooting time, we will provide instruction for shooting under various lighting conditions.

We will use Lightroom to process our images and optimize them for output. Students will learn to apply captions, keywording and metadata. We will also critique student work throughout the workshop, improving daily on your creative, compositional, and business skills.

What you should bring:

  • Digital Camera that Shoots Raw
  • Laptop
  • Compact Flash Card Card Reader
  • External Hard Drive
  • Lightroom 3
  • Photoshop CS5 suggested

 

The class is designed for photographers of all skill levels who want to take their photography in new and different directions. Our ultimate objective is to create the strong color imagery and dynamic graphics that stand the test of time.
