Field techniques for great pictures.

New England Color

September newsletter!

Just released is the new title “New England Color – Field Techniques for Great Pictures”. Join master photographer Jim Zuckerman as he photographs New England in autumn. This area offers a variety of historic locations from the lighthouses of Maine to classic churches and cemeteries in Massachusetts. Shooting in a variety of lighting conditions from sunrise to sunset, Jim is faced with the challenges every outdoor photographer encounters. With over 40 years experience as a professional photographer, Jim Zuckerman shares a wealth of photo tips, tricks, and experience from the field.

On disc two, Jim takes his work back into the studio to show some of his favorite photoshop techniques. The lessons include correcting perspective, creating reflections, and compositing a moon. Jim then reviews an extensive portfolio of some of his most challenging photographs, describing the technical and logistical obstacles he overcame to capture some of his favorite and most enduring pictures.

Take a look at some of the images Jim captured for the program and some free video tips.

Shooting at Magnolia Gardens

Due out late October is a new release from Tony Sweet titled “Visual Artistry: The Art of Pre-Visualizing in Modern Digital Photography.

Shot during the springtime in Charleston, South Carolina, Tony covers some of his all-time favorite locations from Magnolia Gardens to historic Charleston. We also see how Tony uses creative post processing techniques to enhance his pictures to create a one-of-a-kind look.

Some of the digital processes include High Dynamic Range, Photomerge Stitch Pans, Digital Sandwiching, and Infrared. This program runs more than 3 1/2 hours and is packed with advice on composition, exposure, and creative techniques.

Working the scene at Drayton Hall

We are sure this program will help take your photography to the next level and be as useful as Tony’s previous title, “Visual Literacy“. We have even started plans to shoot a program featuring Tony’s flower photography next spring!

Currently in production is a program with photographer Adam Barker. Many know Barker for his inspiring landscape work. Enamored with golden light and unforgettable vistas, his landscapes have sold as limited edition fine art prints to private and corporate collectors throughout the United States. His love affair with exceptional imagery has translated into stirring editorial work in skiing, fly fishing and numerous other lifestyle and adventure publications. In addition, Barker is also frequently sought after by commercial clients seeking imagery that conveys a strong sense of place, product and lifestyle.
