Ian Plant Seminar

  • Country Springs Hotel

The Wide Angle Landscape

Ultra-wide and landscape photography are made for each other. Some people might find this counterintuitive—after all, ultra-wide angles of view can make stunning landscape features, like huge mountains, look very small—but if you learn to use your ultra-wide the right way, you’ll be able to create some truly unorthodox perspectives. In this seminar, pro photographer Ian Plant will draw lessons from his newest ebook “The Ultra-Wide Landscape,” teaching you exactly how to use your wide angle lens to create compelling and unique landscape photos.You’ll learn both the technical and artistic considerations unique to ultra-wide landscape photography, including composition, dealing with the distortion inherent to wide-angle lens designs, and techniques for ensuring sharp near/far focus every time. Ian will also demonstrate digital darkroom techniques useful for ultra-wide landscape photography including focus stacking, exposure blending, and distortion correction. You’ll be out taking amazing ultra-wide landscape photos in no time!

Birds of Prey Workshop

Birds of Prey Workshop

  • Schlitz Audubon Nature Center

During this workshop, we will be photographing approximately 14 different birds of prey including a Bald Eagle, Snowy Owl, and Great Horned Owl. Several birds at a time will be posed outside in selected natural settings in an open field or in trees to more closely resemble their natural environments. The bird handlers will introduce different birds about every hour and reposition them to give you the opportunity to photograph them in the different settings. We will also have the chance to photograph a Harris Hawk in flight. There will be people available at each station to help if you have any questions about photographing the birds. All of the birds in the workshop will be provided by the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center.

See details on our program page.
