Landscape Photography - Doug Bennett

Location:  Online Zoom Meeting. 

When:  Tuesday.  November 03, 2020 from 7:30PM - 9:30PM

Landscape Photography:
Achieving Technical Excellence and Crafting Artistically Expressive Images

Doug will first share elements of photographic craft and technique essential to landscape photography and to making high quality large landscape prints for high-end sales and for print competition entries.  In sharing these techniques, student will learn the underlying “whys”. 

Key to impactful images are images that communicate emotions and reflect artistic vision qualities.  Great landscape photography is about making images that connect with viewers making them feel something about the subject.   Doug will delve into “Dynamic Symmetry” sharing knowledge for how to design and compose your images.  The presentation will also explore unconscious psychological factors that make for appealing landscape photography.


About Doug Bennett

Dabbling with photography back in the ‘70s, Doug didn’t really begin to pursue photography until 2003 when he bought a disposable film camera to photograph his tulips. With a rekindling of his passion for photography, he began a pursuit to learn how to capture images of the landscape.

Doug Bennett has been a member of PPA since 2011.  He earned his Master’s Degree in 2015 along with his Craftsman Degree and Imaging Excellence Award in 2016.  He is a four-time PPA Diamond Photographer of Year, PPA Platinum Photographer of the Year, and a PPA Gold Photographer of the Year.  Lastly, Doug is a two-time Grand Imaging Award Finalist finishing 1st in 2017 and 2nd in 2015 in the Landscape/Nature Category.
