Creative Visualization for Photographers Seminars


Visualizing the end result image, illustrated by the below before-and-after pair of images, is the key to making a good photograph. That is the main theme in my presentations. It's also the title of my forthcoming Focal Press book, Creative Visualization for Photographers.

My presentations (all are welcome) are not just slide shows of pretty pictures. For each image, I share a digital photography tip or Photoshop/Lightroom technique - or a fun story. And speaking of fun, I like to make all my presentations fun and informative experiences.

Bring your questions. I'm there to help.
