SEMINAR DETAILS

Tuesday, October 27th 7:00pm-9:00pm

JOE EDELMAN presents “The Art of Seeing - Success in Photography is in the Details” 

Most photographers want to take great photographs. Yet most of us feel our best efforts usually fall short of our aspirations. We followed the rules, lit it right, exposed it right, posed it right, composed it right, processed it right…but too often something is missing. Using a combination of science, psychology, art, and humor, I will demonstrate how personal perspective and attention to detail, as opposed to formal RULES, often separate the good from the great.

This is a fun and thought-provoking talk that will explain the science behind mistakes that photographers frequently make and take a serious look at what often separates great images from the others. The presentation includes videos as well as a demonstration that will show how you can dramatically improve your photographs, whatever the subject matter, by improving your ability to “see.”
