Roads we’ll travel.
- Simple Foundations –
Just like the award winning EXposed series that changed how so many saw light, PHOTOGRAPHICS starts with the essential foundations of what makes an image so we can learn how to make it great.
- Photography’s Amazing History –
There’s a dearth of photographic history talked about in photography and PHOTOGRAPHICS is about to fix that. Gavin’s takes you on an exciting easy to digest journey of where we came from and what it can teach us in our image making.
– The Depths of Composition -
From little known compositional concepts that have helped define hundreds of years of art to line, tone and frame, to space and use of the horizon. Experience what makes a perfect composition come alive and learn from the masters of history.
- Where Science Meets Art -
Photography is a science and when we take that side by side with the art and subtleties that make a stunning image we’ll come that much closer to answering the question – What makes a great image?
– The Composition Color –
Color tells it’s own story. It carries on a never ending dance with tone and composition and by looking deeper at color and how it can be used we’ll better understand how to make a great image.
- The Motion of Light -
Motion, real or perceived, alters the way we see an image. We’ll explore how motion is used to convey meaning, direction and depth.
- Space, Position, Line and Tone –
We dig deep into principles that make up and image and learn how to master them to change how we see and make photographs.
- An Epic Journey -
Seim Cinematic Workshops do what nothing else does. Wo don’t just talk about light. We experience it. They take the adventure of knowledge to the open road, working hands-on and experiencing the successes and failure that go along with it. PHOTOGRAPHICS is more than a movie. It’s a journey.
- What Makes a Great Image -
Our goal is not an easy one and we’ll journey thousands of miles and through centuries of knowledge. Our goal is not to define rules, but to understand the guides and help each one of us understand what makes a great image.
