Today, more than ever before, a photographic image having a lasting and timeless quality must demonstrate both a mastery of photographic craft and technique, and mastery of vision and expression.
Join Rick Avalos and Doug Bennett at the Lone Tree Civic Offices on May 16th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm as they share from their extensive experience and knowledge essential techniques of craft and art. Not only will this program be informative and useful for accomplished photographers, but also beginners and those who simply wish to take better photographs during their travels and of people of character.
Offering a vast breadth of experience and photographic skill, Rick Avalos is one of today’s premier portrait artists. Not only earning a Master of Photography Degree, Craftsman Degree, and being a Certified Professional Photographer, Rick is also an approved International Print Juror. His presentation ”Heart and Soul” will open your eyes to the beauty and challenges of life and how they are captured.
Being one of PPA’s newest Master Photographers, Doug Bennett, in addition to focusing on some key craft and techniques of shooting the landscape, will principally focus on how to improve your images by examining techniques of vision and art that can help you become more expressive in your landscape imagery. Ansel Adams had it right when he said, “Photograph not only what you see, but also what you feel.” Great landscape photography is about making images that connect with your viewers by communicating your emotions and artistic vision. Doug’s program will provide you extensive insights to make your images communicate more.
