Program 16
Speaker: Nic Stover - "The Psychology of Photography"
 
The psychology of photography goes beyond making pretty pictures and starts to examine the deeper questions beyond the creation of our images. 
How are we drawn to patterns, shapes, lines, and what do they mean to our subconscious?
What is the relationship of these elements to our emotional response to scenes in the field?
What are the different schools of psychology and how the brain forms thoughts and how you can work with that. 
And much more …
 
The last portion of this presentation will include a participant submitted CONSTRUCTIVE and positive image critique / image review with feedback from me and hands-on demonstrations on how to make changes to your images for greater impact.
 
As time approaches, you will receive instructions for submitting images for Nic’s critique.
 
Nic Stover was raised in the high mountains of Western Colorado on a single magazine subscription to National Geographic and only 5 television channels, where the only shows his family regularly watched were Nature (PBS) and the Tour De France. It was here that his love for adventure, the outdoors, and photography took shape.
 
Stover is based in San Luis Obispo, California, and focuses on landscape photography classes and workshops encouraging his class participants to Develop their skills, Explore their capabilities, and to Create meaningful work.
 
He is widely recognized for his work in helping photographers understand the unique perspectives that assist in the discovery of their capabilities, while enabling a deeper connection with themselves and others through creative expression.
