EXPO: Time Travel with Frederick Van Johnson (Panasonic)

Class Code:
UUU7261
Skill Level:
Everyone

With so many new people making photography their hobby, it’s hard to differentiate *your* photography from the petabytes of new (and amazing) digital images flooding the Internet each day. This course is designed to equip you with the tools to create truly unique and “like worthy” imagery, by bending light, space and time to create works of art many people are only just now beginning to experiment with. This set of lessons will teach you not only how to stop time (still photography), but to bend, twist, and stretch it to create truly unique works of art. Once you’ve mastered the techniques in The Photographer’s Time Travel Toolkit you’ll have the tools necessary to use your camera in an entirely new and unique way. It’s time to stop taking photos, and start telling stories.

It’s time to break away from the same old photography everyone else is doing. Learn to manipulate light, space and time and you’ll likely surprise yourself with the results! How to COMPRESS TIME and tell a compelling story using powerful TIME-LAPSE photographic techniques, with the gear you already own! How to STRETCH TIME and illustrate an idea, concept or story using long exposure techniques modernized and streamlined for your own type of photography. How to SELECTIVELY STOP TIME and create amazing cinemagraphs that will take your viewers into the narrative of your image. Use little-known techniques to SPEED UP TIME in a still photograph to easily remove all people and cars from a busy scene.
