“Through the Eyes of a Pro” is a series of training DVDs aimed at developing better photographers using digital equipment and proven approaches. Now, we are proud to announce a new DVD series aimed at the digital photographer with a little more experience. Volumes 1 and 2 of this series include conversations and photo shoots with famed photographer and teacher, Tim Mantoani.
During the course of these two volumes, we follow Tim on a stock photo shoot, an outdoor portrait session, a wildlife shoot, and a little league game. In all these situations Tim explains the challenges faced and how to overcome them. Throughout the presentation, Tim shares experiences and techniques gained over twenty years of shooting athletes, sporting events, weddings, as well as commercial and personal assignments. Hundreds of his photos are included in these DVDs.
During the combined running time of three and one-half hours, Volumes 1 and 2 present the viewer with a structure for developing solid photographic skills. Several photo assignments are presented, along with Tim’s approach to making a great image. Tim also discusses lenses, meters, tripods, and other accessories.
If you own a Digital SLR, even if it is not a Canon, the first two volumes in this series can help improve your photography. Spend a few hours with this remarkable photographer and teacher, and see the world through Tim’s eyes. This DVD assumes you already know how your camera works, but want to raise your photography to the next level. Through a series of interviews and real world photographic sessions, Tim walks you through the process of getting great images, even under challenging conditions. He also discusses the investment in time and equipment necessary to be successful at any level.
