Nature, Landscape and Wildlife
From Pre-Capture to Post Production
Join Bob for a day and earn a PPA Merit. Coates will be sharing the thought process on how he captures landscapes, wildlife and nature images.
Starting with the thinking behind gathering images and the final output the conversation will cover gear used and why. Coates favors the micro 4/3rds camera and lens systems of Panasonic and Olympus. (but all techniques shared can be accomplished with any camera system) Camera supports can be of great help when making multiple exposures for panoramic, focus stacking and exposure bracketing image capture. Who knew that a tripod could help with camera artistry?? Bob shows how he leverages imaginative uses of Platypod and Fotopro supports.
Once the images have made it to the sensor more creativity can be applied using software, Adobe Photoshop, NIK and Luminar and other filters and techniques. Stepping through post-processing including extractions, blending and artistic touches will be demonstrated as well.
