24.04 Sarah Marino - Abstractions: Seeking Mystery in the Natural World

The abstract qualities of a nature photo fall across a wide continuum, from using subtle abstract qualities to develop a composition in which the literal subjects are still obvious, to mysterious presentations of natural subjects in which the viewer has to more deeply consider what they are seeing. With this continuum in mind, Sarah will offer both creative and practical insights into seeing and photographing a wide range of abstractions found in nature. Sarah will share essential lessons on looking for abstract ideas and subjects, composition essentials, creative uses of natural light, and building a cohesive portfolio. Sarah will also discuss the importance of conceptual ideas like provoking curiosity for the viewer, infusing mystery into a scene, and the importance of removing context.
