Shooting for Story
The best way to become a better nature photographer is to become a better visual storyteller. Today, when so much of what we nature photographers cherish is under threat, we need to take our stories public and not only show beautiful pictures, but bear witness to what we stand to lose in the assault on environmental regulations. Bob Krist will share his proactive way of covering a location or activity that results in a host of strong photographs that tell a story. Analyzing his work for National Geographic Traveler and other magazines, Krist will share tips and techniques that will help you improve your photographs as well as your storytelling chops.
