The New Nature Photography: Trends for the Future
You Must Register with the Presenter HERE

Nature Photographers put their photography on the website, in coffee shops, in galleries, art exhibits, art shows, or online, but often struggle selling it. People love a beautiful image of nature, but aren't compelled to buy it for their home. Nature Photographers crave creating something different but often aren't sure how to execute new looks.  There are interior design concepts that are unfamiliar to many Nature Photographers when we set out to make photographs. Photographers venturing out seeking the right light, action, moment, and composition, but often do not think 1st about the differing criteria for creating work appropriate for the various design elements of home or office interiors versus the classic criteria for magazines and calendars.

  • This live, interactive and fun webinar will help you to better understand how to differentiate photography markets and shoot for them in order to create modern nature photography that is desirable to consumers looking to adorn their interiors. Some of the things that you will learn in this program are the following:
  • How to identify the differences between “classic nature photography” and the new nature photography for today's artistic decorative trends.
  • Spot the right photographic compositions for modern decorative art.
  • Identify and apply photographic techniques that elevates your work from traditional to art worthy for today's interior trends.
  • Incorporate mixed media and “found objects” into your creations.
  • Apply simple but impactful post processing techniques.
  • Discover images in your archives that, with a few tweaks, can be translated into the new nature photography.

The Pennsylvania Center For Photography does an annual Transformations Exhibition and they are now accepting entries through July 8th. 

https://www.pacenterforphotography.org/transformations-2021-prospectus/

If you have been rejected from other shows or your work questioned because you use textures, composites, filters, or any of the other wonderful tools available to create your own vision, then you have found your home! Welcome to TRANSFORMATIONS, a juried exhibition that pays tribute to the vision and skills of photographers who freely express their creativity by whatever means they choose. Photographers working in all genres are invited to submit work for possible inclusion in the exhibition. The subject matter can be anything you want – literally anything! People, places, things, visions, are all fine with us. The only requirement is that the image must have started life in your camera. You can modify or create the physical environment, apply in-camera techniques, shoot infrared, use composites, and/or use post processing to realize your own artistic reality. We are a very inclusive organization, so any degree of alteration from mild to extreme is welcome in our show.
