Storytelling Travel Photography
A National Geographic Traveler, 1/2 day multi-media travel photo seminar with Bob Krist,
11/09/14, 9am-1pm. in San Francisco, California
Improving your travel photography takes more than understanding f-stops and shutter speeds. The next step is learning to tell a compelling story with your pictures. National Geographic Photographer Bob Krist will help you go beyond a single-image mindset to create a beautiful visual narrative of your journey. Whether you’re planning a print-on-demand photo book, a web gallery, a video, or a slideshow for friends and family, this half-day seminar will help you tell a fuller story of your travels. You’ll learn the ‘grammar’ of a photo story, and add exciting elements of motion and sound
What Makes a Good Story?
Discover how to organize your shooting so you’ll avoid the “first we went here, then we went there” type of presentation that can put an audience to sleep. Learn five quick tips to help identify subjects with great story potential.
Have you ever arrived at a destination and thought, “Now that I’m here…what do I shoot?” Bob will share his approach for pre-planning your travel coverage and becoming a proactive shooter who depends less on luck and more on your own inspiration.
No visual story is complete without images of people. Bob will share tips on approaching people you don’t know, overcoming language barriers to gain trust and cooperation, plus tried and true techniques that keep people pictures fresh and engaging.
Minimal Gear, Maximum Impact
Not only will a huge backpack of gear slow you down, it can also intimidate potential subjects. Hear how Bob’s minimalist camera bag allows him to be prepared for almost any situation, yet is still lightweight and unimposing enough to blend in anyplace.
Adding Sound and Motion
Explore adding sound and motion to enhance the impact of your visual narratives. Learn easy ways to make slideshows more appealing by adding ambient audio. Dip your toe in the video pond to see if this exciting medium—built into almost all cameras today—is for you.
