PHOTOGRAPHICS is the perfect companion to Exposed. No matter which you watch first, this is a film that tale on art in a way that no film has done.

From guests like Rodney Lough Jr. and Ken Whitmire, to epic vistas, history and deep study of what makes images great, we think you’ll agree that PHOTOGRAPHICS is the best photography series you’ve ever seen.

Roads we’ll travel in this EPIC miniseries.

- Photography’s Amazing History –

There’s a dearth of  photographic history talked about in photography and PHOTOGRAPHICS is about to fix that.

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.

- 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.

- 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.
