Cameras At The Confluence: “Redefine Adventure” featuring the work of Cory Richards
July 18, 6:30-8:00pm
This is a free event open to area photographers. No registration required.

Each month “Cameras At The Confluence” will feature a segment of National Geographic Masters of Photography video course, then have some time to talk, share and maybe go outside and shoot.

REDEFINE ADVENTURE BY CORY RICHARDS This month’s learning segment features Cory Richards, who was named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2012. In this “Redefine Adventure” segment you’ll learn how Cory Richards’s approach to adventure photography has evolved beyond capturing the pure danger of climbing into something larger. Discover ways to reveal the human element in and culture of a locale by using to your advantage techniques including silhouette, leading lines, the vastness of a landscape, and anticipation.

National Geographic Masters of Photography course goes inside the creative process of the industry’s most sought-after photographers as they reveal their working methods, from the planning stages of an assignment through the execution.

The best way to learn any art form, including the art of photography, is by watching a master artist at work. By observing the creative process of a photographer who has truly mastered the trade, you can gain rich insight into how to approach your own images, boost your confidence as you work, and improve your photographs by learning skills that are rarely shared or taught in an ordinary classroom.Even if you’re already a skilled photographer or simply an appreciator of art, the gripping images and stories these esteemed experts share make the experience highly worthwhile. You’ll gain insight on the elaborate process National Geographic photographers go through—both in the technical and artistic sense—from researching and planning a shoot to working a scene and waiting, often for hours, for the right elements to come together.
