What makes a great photograph? What is visual wisdom? What emotions, knowledge and passion did the great landscape artists like Leonardo, Monet, Adams and Wyeth bring to their canvases and lenses before they created their images? What essential skills did they master and pair with their visual wisdom to create landscape masterpieces?
In this three-day workshop and using varied and captivating architecture of Boston as our inspiration, Ossian will teach you the essential skills and techniques to feel comfortable and confident with your camera and its settings. He will simultaneously increase your visual awareness and inspire you intuitively use the camera to connect, compose, enhance and expand your personal vision. Ossian’s accessible and engaging teaching style creates a welcome atmosphere for learning the technical processes of digital photography. Each day he will teach you valuable technical lessons, engage you fully in daily critiques and mind-provoking one-on-one meetings.
The course begins on Tuesday afternoon with an introduction to digital photography and ends on Saturday evening with a very special and festive dinner in the Back Bay at Chef Jody Adam’s newest Mediterranean creation, Porto where we share our work and celebrate our discoveries as we savor creation by one of Boston’s most celebratory chefs.
