October 19 – Lisa Cuchara- Urbex Photography

October 19, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Thursday, October 19, 2017 – Creating Fine Art Photographs from Urban Exploration (UrbEx)

Lisa will discuss the love of RUST and her approach to photographing historic and abandoned buildings, urban decay, etc. She will show techniques for wide angle and close-up photography including the use of HDR (high dynamic range), EDR (extended dynamic range), HDR-panoramas, and light painting in this program. Equipment and techniques used to bring out the beauty and drama of these subjects will also be discussed as we show our fascination with RUST. This program aims to inspire you: inspire you to visit new “old” places and to get to know them well enough to tell their story, inspire you to capture high dynamic range images and to light paint, and inspire you to create art from decay.

Lisa Cuchara is very passionate about photography and she enjoys both being behind the lens and in the digital darkroom. Lisa and her husband Tom are known throughout the Greater New England area for their expertise in photography and in Photoshop, and for their inspirational and informative photo tours, classes, and workshops. They both have created numerous award winning photographic images and enjoy sharing their vision, passion and knowledge with other people.

Amherst Media recently asked Lisa and Tom to write a photography book about their HDR and light painted images. This paperback book, called “Create Fine Art Photographs from Historic Places and Rusty Things” can be ordered from Amazon
