These are but a small sampling of my images from an incredible week. My class put in long long hours and on one night we got back at 1 AM and every single person in the class stayed up in the lobby drinking a bit of vodka until 4 AM working on images. Thanks to Einar and Ragnar for all their hard work and thanks to all my students for inspiration and enjoyment.

Next workshop is with Greg Gorman and it too will be Amazing…

Creative Shooting Workshops – Santa Fe, Mendocino, Iceland & Patagonia

May 20th, 2011 |  by No comments

Perfecting your images takes work. Today almost everyone owns a camera. And, yes, the process of taking a picture has become so simple that even a child can do it. But it takes a truly special vision to capture the world in a graphically brilliant manner in 1/500 of a second. So over the years I have picked up many photographic exercises that I regularly practice, and that I teach my students to keep them in good visual shape and make them better photographers. When I teach a creative workshop we of course go to fantastic locations but the workshops concentrate on techniques to polish your images. We will also do daily critiques to help you further refine your techniques. Here are a few of my favorites:

Triangles in the Corners
When we are attracted to a subject we tend to look towards the center of the viewfinder and rarely pay attention to the periphery. It is in the periphery where we find the things that detract from the image. It may be the branch sticking in, or a pattern of color. As an exercise when you are framing an image take your eyes and glance to the periphery in the viewfinder. Look for triangles being formed, and if you see them it is a good indication that you need to move in tighter on your subject. If you have a triangle in the corner of one of your images and want to determine if it adds to the photograph or detracts from it, cover up everything except the triangle. If the triangle is important, keep it in. More than likely, though, the triangle will be an area of black or white or a branch and by itself is anything but a good image. In this case crop the image and remove the triangles. Space is defined and determined by shapes and forms. Positive space is where shapes and forms exist; negative space is the empty space around shapes and forms. For images to have a sense of balance use positive and negative space to counter balance each other.

Triangles of dead space in the upper right and left

Image is much cleaner and stronger without the triangles of dead space in the corner

Shadows

Shadows and light create drama and far too many photographers think that shadows ruin an image. Try creating images using shadows and making the shadows darker or lighter than they appear to the eye by controlling the exposure. Doing so can help truly create dramatic images. Without shadows, a subject has no form, or texture and appears flat. Shadows don’t have to be dominant and harsh to achieve the effects of form, and texture. They can be soft, to show the most delicate light, shape and form. Generally, harsh, black shadows cause problems especially in reproduction because of loss of detail but from a compositional standpoint, black shadows can be very useful in balancing a scene and directing attention to the point of interest. Harsh shadows can also be excellent for emphasizing texture and form, for creating interesting patterns, and for directing attention.

Lion prints appear concave with the image viewed this way

Same image and now the lion prints appear convex. This is simply based on how your brain perceives the shadow

 

We will study many creative exercises to enhance creativity. Learn more in one of our week long creative workshops:

How to Create Killer Images with Seth Resnick July 10 – July 16, 2011 Santa Fe

March 17th, 2011 |  by No comments

High Intensity Creative Workshop – How to Create Killer Images  with Seth Resnick  July 10 – July 16, 2011

Learn how to create dynamic images from ordinary subjects

“How to Create Killer Images” is a workshop that seeks to reinvigorate your capacity for creativity. We concentrate on techniques that improve the overall photographic process, from concept to output.

In this high-energy workshop, we spend the majority of our time chasing the extraordinary New Mexico light through dramatic, ever-varied landscapes, from sunrise to sunset. We photograph with and without models in diverse environments that include sand dunes, salt flats, colorfully layered red rock, and more. Each photographer learns how to create what they see in their mind’s eye—things others would not see if they were standing right next to them. In this way, you learn how to see the subject matter that you might otherwise overlook.

 

A simple piece of old steel that you may otherwise walk by becomes a strong photograph when the foreground and background are opposite colors

Our non-photographing time includes daily critiques of our work, and classroom instruction on creativity and technique. We use Adobe Lightroom to process our images and optimize them for output.

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.
