The Art of Seeing

Success in Photography Is in the Details

The Art of Seeing: Success in Photography is in The DetailsWWe all want to make great photographs. Yet our best efforts often fall short of our aspirations. We followed the rules, lit it right, exposed it, posed it right, composed it right, and processed it right… but something is often missing. The image just doesn’t have the impact that we had hoped for.

This is a fun and thought-provoking talk explaining the science behind “seeing” and why humans are so bad at seeing details. Using a combination of science, psychology, art, and humor, Joe will demonstrate how personal perspective and attention to detail, instead of RULES, will separate the good from the great.

The presentation includes videos and a demonstration showing how you can dramatically improve your photographs, whatever the subject matter, by enhancing your ability to “see.”

What you will learn:

  • Why is it so hard to “see” all the details in real-time? We will look at the science behind why humans struggle with details.
  • How to take great photographs without paying attention to RULES.
  • The importance of FAILURE to improving as a photographer.
  • Joe’s TOP 18 TIPS for improving your ability to “SEE.”
  • … and much more!
