Evolution of an Image
Rick Sammon, Canon Explorer of Light
May 11th, 2018 6:30PM
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.
Canon Explorer of Light and award-winning photographer Rick Sammon loves his day job. A tireless, prolific and inspirational image-maker, Rick, called by some “The Godfather of Photography,” is one of the most active photographers on the planet – dividing his time between creating images, leading photo workshops, and making personal appearances. Rick’s enthusiasm for digital imaging is contagious. He is a man on a mission – a mission to make digital photography fun, creative, exciting and rewarding for others.
While Rick describes himself as “evolving,” he hesitates to categorize his work. “I’m an A-to-Z type of photographer. I do it all – and I enjoy the freedom of not specializing.”
With nearly 40 years of experience, this self-taught photographer has many accomplishments – and many more anticipated for the road ahead. As Rick suggests, “When you are through changing, you are through.”
