cARTerART Photography Talks
Titles available 2020 - 2021 including ZOOM online photography presentations.
1) Perpetually in Motion. I believe that landscape photographers have to be in tune with the fourth dimension - the passage of time. This talk illustrates all the forces of nature that create motion and change. This is a two part lecture but works for one evening or I can return at another date for part 2.
2) Landscape Photography and Focal lengths. From 14mm - 640mm. A look at the potential of different lenses in landscape photography.
3) The Camera Lies .... and that is why it is a creative process. The most frequently asked question is..."do you manipulated your images?". I know people want to know if I have used Photoshop. The answer is I have to process my RAW images but don't believe I manipulate them. I do however use in-camera techniques to change reality. I believe this makes photography a creative process. This talks illustrates my thoughts.
4) Dancing Lights - a decade of aurora hunting.
5) Patagonia in Winter. If, like me, you find summer landscape photography in the UK less than inspiring then there is always the option to chase winter and head south. Patagonia is a dream destination with steppes, mountains and glaciers to discover. My talk explores locations and wildlife on the Argentinian side of Patagonia and includes an AVI of the El Chalten region and the mighty Fitz Roy Massif. I provide information that would help any adventurous traveller to consider a self-guided trip. Winter has weather challenges, but in my experience it is ideal if you like pristine landscapes all to yourself and enjoy wildlife as well as landscape photography and is far easier than you may think.
