Photographing Distant Cultures
Wednesday, December 9, 2009 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Speakers: Arlene Collins
Event Type: Photography
Skill Level: Basic, Intermediate
Location: B&H Event Space
When you travel, creating successful photographs of distant cultures takes personal vision, technique and planning. Whether your destination is Mexico or Mongolia, your photographs should express the sense of place, capture the essence of the people and tell a story. Anyone can take a typical tourist shot. Learning to feel comfortable in exotic locations and getting close to people is easy, if you know how.

Arlene shows her own photographs from around the world featuring her long term World Heritage Sites Photography Project. She reveals how she is able to photograph landscapes & historic sites with no people. In addition, she shows her student’s photographs and explains the different styles her students have developed over the course of their adventures.

Arlene will discuss various shooting techniques, how to work under challenging lighting situations, low light and at night, how to hire & work with guides (fixers), what equipment to take and how to pack, traveling with film and digital media, how to edit your work for final presentation for portfolios or websites.
