Reminder Monday -- Exquisite Waterscapes: The Art of Photographing Water by Mark Bowie

Monday April 8th -- Mark Bowie

Exquisite Waterscapes:  The Art of Photographing Water

Water is one of the most photogenic subjects of the natural world, a quintessential compositional element.   It opens views and doubles the landscape’s beauty through reflection.   Mark will cover field strategies and state-of-the-art digital darkroom techniques for producing incredible images of lakes and ponds, rivers and other flowing waters, waterfalls and marine coasts.   He will address scouting subjects, reading and shooting the light, photographing from the shore and from a boat.   He’ll discuss photographing water in all seasons and in combinations of its three phases, with tips and techniques on: shooting reflections, framing creative compositions with your full suite of lenses, the effect of shutter speed on moving water, macro opportunities, creating impressionistic waterscapes, photographing water at night and shooting multiple exposures for panoramas, HDR’s and layer masks.   Educational, enlightening and inspirational, this presentation is geared for both amateur and professional shooters who want to take their water imagery to new levels.

Mark Bowie is a professional nature photographer and writer.  His work has been published internationally in books, on calendars and posters, and in advertising media.  He has had three coffee table books published on the Adirondacks and is the author of two e-books on night photography: The Light of Midnight: Photographing the Landscape at Night and Night Examples.  He is a staff instructor for the Adirondack Photography Institute, leading digital and landscape photography workshops throughout New York and New England.
