The Art of Seeing - Improving Your Photographic Vision
How do you see the world around you? Do you just see what others see, or do you see something different? One of the greatest challenges for photographers is discovering their unique vision. To do this, we must learn to observe, imagine, and express.
In Danielle’s presentation, she will discuss how taking an in-depth look at your surroundings through light, perspective, design, and mood can help you discover a new viewpoint and get more from your creative experience.

It is a creative choice as it can dramatically transform your image, but it can also help improve an image as it focuses more on the elements like tonal contrast, texture, shape, form, and quality of light. It is suitable for almost any genre, like landscapes, portraits, architecture, still life, and street photography. Danielle will discuss the principles of B&W Photography, why converting your images can be beneficial, and ways to convert images using some of the most accessible post-processing software programs available.
