This slide goes with a presentation, Less is More: Photographing Kids, Family, and Weird Things, I’ll be giving Monday, November 24, 2008 at the Golden Gate Computer Society, Embassy Suites Hotel, San Rafael, CA at 7:15PM; click here for more information.
With the holidays upon us, the thoughts of many of us turn to taking photos of family, friends, turkeys, and other weird things. In this presentation I’ll discuss:
- Simple, straightforward, and foolproof processes to take photography from capture to display or printing
- Ideas and techniques for turning everyday photos of family, friends, and surroundings into special and interesting images
Other topics I plan to cover include:
- Don’t gain the world at the expense of your soul: personally engage.
- How to control light with a point-and shoot camera, avoiding “exposure modes from Hell”
- Using pre-visualization as a key photographic skill.
- Making the mundane fantastic—using composition to avoid boring family pictures.
- Photographing children for the precious individuals they are
- Leaving the shoe box behind…Displaying and preserving photos in the digital era.
There will be time for Q&A. Bring questions with you!
