I’ve got a little surprise for those of you who tuned into our “Photomorphis Guide to Creativity” video series last month during my guest coaching stint. I ended our last video with a short speed video capture of my post processing work in Photo Raw to transform a raw image into one that makes an emotional statement. Well, sometimes when you think you’ve finished with an image, you get a lingering sense that there’s something missing, and maybe it’s not finished after all.
Watch the recording of Doug’s live Q&A covering this month’s topic, creativity. In this recording members of the audience ask questions and Doug answers them live. There is also some fun editing during the presentation.
In the final video in this series I share with you my thoughts regarding creative techniques and processes. It is time to execute the idea! We’ll cover shooting, editing and post-production in this lesson. .
In this next part of my creativity presentation, I will discuss some of the methods I use to bring all the elements of an idea together in order to maximize the creative potential of that idea, in other words, to facilitate the synthesis of that idea.
Hi Everyone. I’m thrilled to share the next video of our “Photomorphis Guide to Creativity” with you. This next section is titled” The Anti-Workflow”. We’ve called it the anti-workflow because it concerns ideas, a topic that can’t be easily outlined or defined by a set workflow structure. Ideas, whether they are very simple or very elaborate, need to come naturally from somewhere within you. To effectively harness the power of ideas you need to free yourself from the constraints of your logic and tap into the free flowing stream of all your sources of inspiration.
A big thank you to the ON1 Plus community for having me as Guest Coach during the month of October. It was a blast for me and I really hope you enjoyed the Photomorphis Guide to Creativity video series. Creativity and inspiration have always played a major role in my commercial and fine art photography and I’m thrilled to have had the opportunity to share some of my art and process with you.
Please Welcome Doug Landreth and David Volkamer of Photomorphis! We’re excited to have them coaching this month on a topic we both think you will love, creativity.
I’ve found that creativity in any discipline is about finding new and original ideas and I want to share my tried and true methods for achieving maximum photographic creativity. Fresh ideas come directly from inspiration and they’re an essential component in the development of every photographer’s technique, content, and visual representation.
Doug Landreth is one of the nicest people we have had the pleasure of working with. He has been photographing parts of the world and the Pacific Northwest for the past 25 years. He is well known for his complex, conceptual photo-illustrations, and his large-scale production, lifestyle and transportation campaigns, for which he has received numerous national awards. For the past ten years Doug has been focusing not only on his thriving commercial business, but developing a large following for his painterly, composited fine art images.
