Evolution of an Image

In this presentation Rick Sammon illustrates the creative photographic process from start to finish. He pulls back the curtain to prove that creating amazing photographs is a well-thought-out process that involves several stages: envisioning the end result, seeing the light, using creative composition, taking the picture and processing the image. 

To illustrate his points, Rick will share some of his favorite wildlife, landscape and seascape images from his worldwide travels. He will also share his favorite photographs from his recent trip to Grand Tetons National Park.

By including his outtakes in his presentation― and the reasons that he considers them outtakes― Rick suggests the steps that every photographer should take in order to improve their images.

Combining technical advice with tips on lighting, composition and using Lightroom and Photoshop, this presentation will motivate and encourage those looking to evolve as creative photographers and digital darkroom artists.

This presentation is based on Rick’s best selling (and 36th) book, Evolution of an Image.

Program: Rob Palmer presents "Owls of North America"

Discussing the behavior and where to find North American owls, it will focus mainly on Colorado owls.

Rob has been involved with animals since he was very young. He has always had a passion for birds of prey, and has pursued that passion throughout his adult life. In college, he spent numerous hours studying the nesting territories of prairie falcons in Northeastern Colorado, and additional time researching screech owls nesting along the Boulder Creek trail in the center of Boulder, Colorado.

Rob taught life science and biology for seven years in the late eighties and early nineties. Since that time, he has spent most of his free time studying raptors and refining his photography techniques.
