Mark Bowie

Dawn to Deep Night: Crafting Special Landscape Images

Program Description

With intricate details in the landscape and sky — from the brilliant orange-golds of sunrise to the theatrical colors of sunset, the luminous blues of twilight and the otherworldy light of midnight — the latest digital technologies allow photographers to push the bounds of what can be captured with a camera.  Good field craft and attention to detail remain paramount to creating compelling images, but we also have the unprecedented ability to expand exposure latitude, depth of field and resolution into a single image for maximum impact.

 Professional nature photographer Mark Bowie will lead a power-packed seminar on the innovative techniques he uses for taking landscape imagery beyond the commonplace to the extraordinary.  He’ll explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us, and the nuances of color and composition that affect us so profoundly.  He’ll also offer strategies, tips and techniques for the field and the digital darkroom.
