Looking at Photography With Your Mind's Eye, Not Your Camera Lens - Workshop 1
This is the first workshop in a series of three half-day workshops hosted by Brisbane Camera Group and run by Adrian Lowe on artistic, creative photography to produce images with outstanding visual impact.
These Workshops will not cover technical camera skills associated with taking photos. Instead these talks will explain how the mind works in the background in relation to a scene, and how we see, interpret and use techniques in camera and in post-production to highlight those unique elements.
They all come from our prehistoric conditioning and still remain our subconscious motivators to this day. Adrian will cover such things as why do we peer into shadows, get distracted by a lot of highlight blocks, why do we like repetition, high contrast, BW, why does expression get to us? Why does a broad smile make us smile automatically?
The workshops will delve into the psychology of photography and how we can create extraordinary images with strong visual impact. Adrian will present concepts based around how the subconscious gets attracted to, and distracted by, different elements in a scene/subject. Knowing what these are and the effect they have on you allows you to shoot to get the most from the scene, and ultimately to get the viewer using those same subconscious reactions to be moved by your image
