Ossian Lindholm is a renowned nature photographer from Tucuman, Argentina. Originally educated as an agronomist, many years ago he turned his deep passion for nature to photography. He is dedicated to capturing, preserving, conserving, sharing and sustaining the landscape, nature and culture of Argentina in its most pristine state. Ossian has published five books and fifteen calendars, and teaches throughout the year. Since 1998 he has been leading groups of photographers and naturalists on photographic journeys throughout his native Argentina.
Taken from its Greek roots,“photography” literally means “drawing with light”. Among the biggest challenges for nature photographers is capturing natural light while conveying a sense of personal experience of a place. Because the most beautiful natural light is unpredictable, unique light situations create perfect, but fleeting, opportunities to take mesmerizing and meaningful photographs. A photographer demonstrates mastery and creates his/her most impactful work with the intuitive knowledge of how a tight range of settings can be used to capture the essence of light. We must plan, prepare, and predict what we need to capture this “perfect light”.
Ossian Lindholm will uncover and demystify the basic skills of “drawing with light” and introduce the advanced techniques needed to become a master of light. He will also give suggestions about gear, specific settings, and how and what tools to use to scout the best “light times” and locations.Buy tickets/get more info now
