The Art of Nature
with Brian Truono
A beautiful world of natural wonders is all around us. They can be tucked in-between blades of grass in your backyard; found skimming the surface of a local park’s creek; or be a magnificent geological feature teetering on the edge of a thousand foot precipice. Brian seeks to bring these hidden gems into homes and businesses as decor with his fine art prints.
Whether you want to expand or enhance your collection of vacation images – or build a business around the results – Brian will be sharing his process of trip planning, preparation for on-location shoots, ideas for capturing, developing photos, along with the trials and tribulations of running a fine art photography business.
While the focus may be on landscape and nature photography, many of these techniques and planning methods are helpful for capturing beautiful backgrounds and scenery for on-location portrait, wedding and commercial shoots. You will learn new ways of utilizing natural light and interesting compositions that can be easily incorporated into your next photo session.
