Unseeing: Taking Photos with Attitude
Whether hanging over the rim of an active volcano, braving the elements to photograph critically-endangered species, or trekking deep into the wilderness to places most people will never see, professional photographer Ian Plant travels the globe seeking out amazing places and subjects in his never-ending quest to capture the beauty of our world with his camera. In his over fifteen years as a professional photographer, Ian has learned a profound lesson: pointing a camera at something beautiful isn’t how you make great photos—it’s how tourists take snapshots. If you’d rather be an artist instead of a tourist, then you need to do more than just capture what you see with your eyes. Instead, great photography happens when you capture what people don’t see. When you learn how to compel people to see the world in a way they have never imagined before, that’s the moment when your photos have a meaningful impact. And it all starts with seeing the world with fresh eyes.
In this ebook, Ian shares his most powerful secrets to taking compelling photographs. He starts by showing you how to see the world the way your camera sees it: you’ll learn how your choice of focal length, aperture, exposure, and shutter speed can profoundly and artistically transform your photography subjects. But technical choices are merely the beginning: Ian will also teach you how to creatively use perspective, composition, light, and moment to make stunning photos. These lessons will forever alter how you see the world and fundamentally transform your photography.
This ebook isn’t your typical dry and dusty tome with a bunch of boring technical lectures; rather, it is a fun and full-throated manifesto, a call to arms for you to totally unleash your creative vision. If you want to become a photography rebel, shattering conventions and breaking taboos to stand out from the crowd, then this ebook will help you show the world what you’re made of!
This ebook is perfect for beginning photographers looking to explore their more artistic side, as well as more advanced photographers who find themselves in a creative rut.
