Focus on Travel: Creating a Destination Photo Essay: October 11-13

Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

Travel almost always goes together with photography. But how many of us come back from our journeys with the kind of strong images professionals create for catalogs and magazines? In this weekend workshop, I will share the tricks of trade that I developed during my many years traveling on assignment for magazines and corporate clients. In preparation for our field outings, we’ll develop a shot list so everyone goes into the field with a clear purpose. We’ll also discuss essentials like 1) creating a sense of place; 2) creating a mood using natural light; 3) photographing people, including friends and strangers. Then, using locations in the Dallas community as our destinations, you will have opportunities to gather images for individual travel photo essays. The workshop will include daily review sessions to help you hone your photographic skills and enhance your vision by seeing and analyzing images by all workshop participants. We will also explore after-capture techniques to perfect our images further. For details and to register, email Allen.
