LANDSCAPE & PORTRAITURE PHOTOGRAPHY
Tutor: David Oliver
“All the technique in the world doesn’t compensate for the inability to notice.” Elliott Erwitt
Portraiture: will cover the use of natural light, how that affects the subject you are photographing, how to get great expressions from your sitter and make them feel relaxed. It will show work from masters from the past up to the current masters. David will work hands on with each student demonstrating how to take the perfect portrait. Bring cameras and a short telephoto if possible. David is a Nikon shooter so he will have portrait lenses with him for Nikon users.
Landscapes: will teach what to look for in the landscape. It will cover composition and how to use it to strengthen your images, when to choose B/W over colour.
David maintains that emotion is the most important element in a photograph, and this area will be studied.
You will shoot sunrise one morning, which will mean early start, early finish; and vice versa – a sunset shoot with a later start.
The programme will be based around the weather so obviously if it’s raining they will be portrait days.
David views life through a lens. His work takes him all over Australia and across the world shooting weddings, portraits and landscapes. His ability to capture incredible images has been recognised not only by his clients, but by his profession. He is a Grand Master of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography and an ambassador for Nikon and Epson.
