FEBRUARY 14 – Tom and Lisa Cuchara: Focusing on the Details: Create Fine Art Photographs from Urban Exploration
Lisa and Tom will discuss love for RUST and their approach to and experience with photographing historic and abandoned buildings, urban decay, etc. They will show techniques for wide angle and close-up photography including the use of HDR (high dynamic range), EDR (extended dynamic range), HDR-panoramas, and light painting in this program. Equipment and techniques used to bring out the beauty and drama of these subjects will also be discussed as we show our fascination with RUST.
