Lynda.com - Tue, 04/21/2015 - 05:00
Authored By: Richard Harrington

Released On: 4/21/2015

Join Rich Harrington and family on a trip to Costa Rica and see a variety of ways to capture the beauty and diversity of a tropic destination. This unique course introduces you to the culture, countryside, and wildlife of Costa Rica, but also shows how to shoot photographs and video in challenging situations travel photographers face in many places.

Rich organizes the lessons by location and activity, so you can dive right into the type of photography that interests you: nature, landscape, macro, underwater, street, or architecture. First he covers packing and planning for a trip to Costa Rica. Then he visits five uniquely beautiful locations, starting with the remote mountain town of Monteverde, where he gets "close up" to wildlife and takes a GoPro along on a zipline tour. At Manuel Antonio, he shows how to shoot at the beach—in and out of the water—and create awe-inspiring time lapses. In Arenal Rich enters the rainforest and shoots with local chocolate and coffee growers, and in Caño Negro, he takes a river-boat tour. The trip ends in San José, the capital of Costa Rica, which offers great opportunities for shooting street photography and architecture.

The course closes with some in-field workflow tips to keep your images safe, and some post-production techniques to develop your photos in Lightroom, Photoshop, and Camera Raw.

Exploring Composition in Photography

Lynda.com - Mon, 04/20/2015 - 05:56
Authored By: Taz Tally

Released On: 4/20/2015

In photography, composition isn't everything…but it's close. Effective composition can make a photo far more powerful by drawing the viewer's eye into the scene and guiding it in a way that conveys your intent as a photographer.

In this course, photographer and educator Taz Tally details four pillars of effective, impactful composition: simplicity, asymmetry, eye lines, and point of view. Through example images and helpful graphics, the course discusses not only the things you can do to enhance composition when you're shooting, but also improvements you can make using imaging software such as Lightroom.

Throughout the course, Taz issues challenges to help you practice what you've learned. The course concludes with a look at how to critique—and thereby improve— your work.
