The Art & Philosophy of Landscape Photography

Dan Anderson, a landscape photographer from Ellison Bay, WI, will present a program on The Art & Philosophy of Landscape Photography on Tuesday, January 29, from 7-9pm.

Dan will discuss what a landscape photograph “is” and “is not”, the various “types” of landscape photography, and how the “philosophy, emotions and style” of the photographer “work in harmony” to create a work of landscape art.

The discussion of what goes into creating a piece of art will touch on necessary camera techniques and the frustrations that may occur when working in this style of photography. Topics will be illustrated using Dan’s personal portfolio of images.

Examples will also include recent images made with his new photographic tool — a drone. There will be time for questions regarding his new camera platform, drone photography.

You can view more information about Dan and his work on his website, www.danielandersonphotography.com, and on his Facebook page www.facebook.com/daniel.anderson.photos
