A landscape doesn't always have to be presented literally. "Abstracts in Landscape Photography" will expand your way of seeing a landscape, whether it be an intimate landscape or a wide vista. Learning how to create abstract images enables you to show the world your own unique artistic vision.

Not always is an abstract approach the right approach, but there are times that it's a great way to take an average image and make it awesome! During this workshop, Janet and Les will show you examples of abstract photography and techniques to create abstract images in the camera and in post-processing. Participants will also study graphic design elements in a landscape - shape, line, color, motion and texture - the basics for all good graphic design. This workshop will help you discover how to express a landscape in a way that may hold the viewer's attention longer and be a more interesting story as a result of using an abstract approach in your photography.

Expand your vision. Join Les and Janet for their "Abstracts in Landscape Photography" in Brevard this June.
