Photo Critique by the World Renowned Frans Lanting  

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was chosen by Frans Lanting, and the CreativeLive producers to join a field trip and workshop course called the “Art of Seeing.”

Frans is a world renowned photographer. He has shot for many publications including National Geographic for over 30 years. He concentrates on Landscapes and Nature ( Right up my alley ! ) I was even more impressed with Frans after I heard him speak at one of the TED talks . http://www.ted.com/search?q=frans+lanting  He is very active with many conservation groups. If you want to be impressed - Google him .

Well anyway - little did I know, that I would be spending the entire day with him almost one on one, and even borrowing his equipment!  He let me borrow his 300mm Nikon 2.8 lens ( That thing is a beast ! ) I don’t mind saying I was a little intimidated by the thought of shooting with Frans…. I mean really ? I have been shooting a long time but come on!  Anyway, Frans was so charming, and had such a great style of teaching that he made me feel at ease right away.  

The day was absolutely fabulous – I had so much fun and kind of forgot about the cameras and microphones … In fact, I forgot I was wearing a microphone and swore like a sailor when I was accidentally knee deep in ocean waves while shooting at sunset . (The CreativeLive guys were kind enough to edit that part out in the final video :) 

By the way - If you haven't heard of CreativeLive - do yourself a favor and visit their website .  https://www.creativelive.com/. They have tons of on line courses for free when they are broadcast live. Or you can buy the course and watch whenever you like . Was so much fun hanging out with these guys in their studio in San Francisco . Very creative and fun group of people . I even bumped in to the CEO -Chase Jarvis in the coffee room ! 

Anyhoo -enough of my rambling - Have a look at the 5 minute video showing Frans critique of my images. I thought I would share, so you can hear is advice specifically on composition and learn the “Art of Seeing".  Thanks again Frans and CreativeLive ...you guys are awesome !
