UNSEEING: TAKING PHOTOS WITH ATTITUDE

UNLEARN how you see the world

UNDO your perception of reality

UNLEASH your creativity

A camera changes our perception of reality in several significant ways. See the way your camera sees.

Technical choices can transform your subject profoundly and artistically.  Then consider other important factors such as perspective, position, composition, light and moment.

Join Ian for this enlightening and exciting seminar as he shares his insights about the use of composition, storytelling and light to make photos that grab attention and never let go.
