Industry Seminar with Kevin Ames, Sponsored by Sigma

"Technical Mastery, Craft & the Art of Creative Seeing"

Friday, March 07 - 3:00PM to 3:45PM
Key 3-4

Creative seeing ties technical craft, medium mastery and concept together. Imagining scenes differently then making compelling photographs of them is always the goal of artistic lens selection. Lenses are the light benders that paint the film or sensor with the photographer's vision. This presentation by Atlanta based commercial photographer Kevin Ames shows his career long explorations of light and lenses in traditionally "wrong" situations on film and digital. Changing rules by choosing ultra wide angles for fashion, portrait lenses for product, extra long telephotos for engagement photos or long zooms for landscapes are some of the challenges he solves in this exploration of the art of innovative seeing.
