The Creative Control of Natural Light: How to See, Create, and Photograph Magical Landscapes. Join Argentinian nature photographer Ossian Lindholm as he takes you on a photographic tour of his native Northern Argentina, Patagonia and Northern Chile and its incredible landscape and wildlife diversity. Taken from its Greek roots, the word “photography” literally means “Drawing with Light.” One of the biggest challenges facing nature photographers is not only capturing natural light but how to use that light to convey our very personal experience of a place. No two sunrises and sunsets are the same! Because the most beautiful natural light usually behaves unpredictably, this “unique” light situation is also a perfect (and fleeting) opportunity to take mesmerizing and meaningful photographs. Since these precious moments of “the perfect light” happen so quickly, we as photographers must plan, prepare and predict what we need to do to capture the light. A photographer reaches camera mastery and can create photographs with the most impact when he intuitively knows what settings, or tight range of settings, to use to capture the essence of light.” In this talk, renowned Argentinian nature photographer and documentary filmmaker Ossian Lindholm will uncover and demystify the basic skills of “drawing with light” and the advanced techniques needed to become a master of light. He will also give suggestions about gear, specific “capturing the light” settings and how and what tools to use to scout the best “light times” and locations. In this inspiring and educational presentation, native Argentinian photographer Ossian Lindholm teaches us the art (and craft) of creating magical landscape photographs as he takes us on an intimate visual journey of his favorite Argentinian places. Traveling and discovering our natural world and its cultures with your camera allows you to experience the world intimately and with all of your senses. The travel photographer does not just point his lens and shoot—he explores, he listens, he searches for the best angle, an interesting pattern of colors, and always waits patiently for the best light. Most importantly, a travel photographer must be open to feeling all of the sensations of the place and, if he is lucky, he successfully composes then captures one magical moment, one unique image that precisely transmits his deepest feelings of that place. Travel photography is thus a window into our ourselves, our own highly personal, travel vision.
After Ossian’s talk you will: 1) Have a better understanding of: Landscape camera settings, light metering modes for landscapes, depth of field and composition; 2) understand the logistics and value of exposing to the right (ETTR); 3) Have a special understanding and appreciation of this unique and little-known part of the world; and 4) Be inspired by Ossian’s passion for photography and creating endearing images that poignantly communicate our special and symbiotic relationship with nature.
