Focal Press, a leading publisher of media technology books, announces the availability of “The Photographer’s Eye Course” by Michael Freeman, an acclaimed international photographer and author of 66 photographic books.
This course includes two complete full-length DVDs with more than four hours of instruction and an accompanying tailor-made course book available now at Focal Press. For streaming video, individual tutorials can be purchased separately or the full collection can be purchased at a discount with the course book, all of which is available for download at www.freemanphotography.tv.
Go beyond pushing buttons and learn how to better your craft from pre-shoot to post-production. The video master class starts with the technical, moving on through composition and exposure, and ending on specific types of shoots and how to create a narrative from your images.
Shot over the course of a year at locations across the globe, the master classes provide a uniquely accessible photography course, taking viewers from first principles – exposure, focus, and composition – to subtle professional considerations like the art of sharing with print or digital audiences.
Joining Freeman on his professional assignments as well as shooting in the studio, the viewer experiences the realities of photography in a way any enthusiast or pro can easily put into practice for themselves. The locations range from South-East Asia to Yosemite, and there are assignments from the canals of Birmingham to high-tech fabrication plants in San Francisco.
“The master classes in ‘The Photographer’s Eye Course’ cover the key themes of my books, largely illustrating by example. I think observing a professional in their own working environment on a dedicated shoot is the classic, tried-and-tested method of learning,” Freeman said. “I’ll be motivating you to get out there, practice these techniques and explore these ideas in your own photography.”
Freeman is a renowned international photographer who specializes in travel, architecture and Asian art. While “The Photographer’s Eye Course” is his 66th book on the craft of photography, Freeman has released a total of 135 books selling more than 4 million copies. His professional shooting ranges from reportage to architecture and special effects. Hallmarked by a 30-year collaboration with Smithsonian magazine, Freeman is a veteran professional editorial photographer working for major international publications.
