Learn the concepts and techniques to consistently create powerful and compelling travel images. Whether you enjoy shooting wildlife, landscape, people or any other kind of travel photography, instructor Lorne Resnick will explain what goes into making great pictures – from a complete digital workflow solution to finding and shaping your personal artistic voice.

The workshop will place heavy emphasis on creating images with “purpose”. We will look at how you approach your image making and the basic elements of a successful photograph. Split into three parts, the day begins with a presentation on creating emotionally compelling images. Additionally, Lorne will demonstrate his fine art workflow, including post-production in Photoshop and a three-minute “master printing” course. Part two focuses on portfolio reviews, via digital projection, of everyone’s work. Learning how to critically analyze work is an indispensable skill for a photographer to have. In the end, it’s about finding your vision and voice. Discussion and Q&A finish the day. Topics may include the creative process, the travel story arc (what to shoot and how to shoot it), equipment selection, image processing, the current markets available for travel work (fine art, commercial, book publishers, websites), how to optimize travel shooting to take advantage of different markets, and more.

Whether you are a novice or a pro, this workshop will have you generating more compelling images, giving you the structure and understanding to refine your skills. Please bring 20 of your favorite images saved as JPEGS (2,000 pixels on the long side) on a thumb drive or CD/DVD. See more at:
