Tips and Techniques for Better Landscape & Nature Photography

Join host and Sony Artisan Joe Brady as he shares his process for capturing great landscape and travel images. Joe’s talk isn’t centered on gear but rather on an approach as he challenges you to rethink what steps you can take to best capture a beautiful scene.

Following these tips, Joe will include demonstrations on image processing using both Lightroom and Photoshop. Starting with getting your color under control, see how fast and easy it can be to turn images that look disappointing on the back of the camera into beautiful photographs.

It doesn’t matter if you use your Smartphone or the latest top of the line camera, come see the techniques and approach that will make travel and landscape photography a pleasure. You’ll leave feeling rejuvenated and inspired!
