Planning, Serendipity, and the Creative Process
 7:30-9:30pm at the Lucy Evans Palo Alto Baylands Nature Center
Landscape photographer Michael Frye will take you behind the scenes and reveal the creative and technical process behind some of his best-known images. Some photographs, like his surreal nighttime scenes, required meticulous planning, while others were the result of spontaneous reactions to quickly-changing conditions. He’ll show you the failures that led to the successes, and the compositional, technical, and developing decisions that led to the finished image. He’ll also talk about how you can improve your own creative process, and make imaginative photographs that go beyond a literal representation of a scene to capture a mood or feeling.
Michael Frye is a professional photographer specializing in landscapes and nature. His photographs and articles about photographic art and technique have appeared in publications around the world, and he is the author and/or principal photographer of four books: The Photographer’s Guide to YosemiteYosemite MeditationsYosemite Meditations for Women, and Digital Landscape Photography: In the Footsteps of Ansel Adams and the Great Masters. Michael has also written three ebooks: Light & Land: Landscapes in the Digital DarkroomExposure for Outdoor Photography, and Landscapes in Lightroom 5: The Essential Step-by-Step Guide. Michael has lived in and near Yosemite National Park for over 30 years, currently living just outside the park in Mariposa, California.
