JUNE 20,2013 - Capturing the Scene in Color and Infrared - Jamie Konarski Davidson
Photography is all about the light ‑ the light we see, the light we don't, and the light within. Doing all the right things in the field with our equipment is just part of the equation.
It's not about "fixing" what we didn't do in the field.
Tapping into our own natural resources of observation and imagination, connecting with, working and capturing our subjects is what allows us to extend our creative choices as we process and refine our images.
In this program, Jamie Konarski Davidson will share images and the possibilities of image creation in color and infrared (faux color and black/white) using a variety of tools both in the field and in the digital darkroom. Being "present" wherever you are and refining your "seeing" skills allow you to notice and know what capture process will allow you to stretch the potential in the image-making process.
Learn how capturing the scene with a converted infrared camera can expand your shooting time and allow you to create images that speak in a different voice.
Jamie will discuss how to see what makes strong IR images as well as post-processing for faux color and black/white, how to recognize what works best for color, when to choose HDR to capture subjects and how to get the most out of your photo adventures.
Whether your interests are in the smallest details or the grand landscapes, and anything in between, this program will provide you with information and food for thought that will help you expand the way you see what is before you. Join Jamie as she shares the process she uses in camera and beyond (in color and infrared) and tips you can use to capture images that speak to your own vision and style.
