Part 1 VHS contains the following three segments:
The Visionary Wilderness:
Translating Vision to Film
This module explains why the images we thought we saw are so different from the images that end up on film. Galen Rowell investigates this “visual deception” and tells us how to make images that end up being more powerful than what we see.
Eye to Eye: Principles
of Wildlife Photography
This segment covers both the creative and logistical challenges of wildlife photography. From location selection to film selection, and from trip length to focal length, you’ll get Frans Lanting’s unique approach to shooting in the wild.
Ethical Issues: Charting a Course
Into the Future of Photography
While photography always involves an element of illusion, the new practices of altering content through digital means or controlled shooting conditions are changing the field. Frans and Galen discuss how photographers can maintain credibility with each other and with their audiences in this brave new world.
