Creative Scenic and Landscape Photography
Course Number: 8
Level: Intermediate to Advanced
This class will focus on techniques for capturing stunning scenic and landscape photographs, and learning creative editing approaches for more impactful, salable art. We will explore the things that make photographs stand out in the field of art, and how to construct scenic art composites starting with a “blank canvas”. Dennis will share his favorite Photoshop and Lightroom secrets, including how to fix common editing problems, and secrets for making compelling, believable changes of skies in landscape photos.
There will be “hands on” class exercises with Dennis taking you step-by-step through some of his favorite Photoshop editing techniques and compositing strategies.
You will have the opportunity to submit your work for the instructor’s critique for purposes of print competition and art sales.
Throughout the workshop, four common questions will always be present and will be addressed: what can you do to become a more creative photographer, why do some photographs have more impact than others, which editing techniques most effectively add to that impact, and which pieces are the most marketable. In the end, Dennis will then lead you through the steps to get your photographs out into the art market.
