MICHAEL FREEMAN BOOK SIGNING SESSION
In The Photographer's Eye, Michael Freeman showed what a photographer needs to do in the instant before the shutter is released. In the sequel, The Photographer's Mind, he explained the way that professional photographers think a picture through before taking it. Both of these international best-sellers featured Michael's own photography: stunning landscapes, revealing portraits, and fascinating street photography. Now, in The Photographer's Vision, he examines the work of photography's greats, explaining how to look at a photo - and how to learn from looking at it.
Michael Freeman is the author of the global bestseller, The Photographer's Eye. Now published in sixteen languages, The Photographer's Eye continues to speak to photographers everywhere. Reaching 100,000 copies in print in the US alone, and 300,000+ worldwide, it shows how anyone can develop the ability to see and shoot great digital photographs.
Michael will be sharing with the crowd his inspiration and ideology behind his latest photographer book, The Photographer's Mind which was just released in the United States on 13 Oct 2011. After the sharing session, he will be having a short book signing session.
In collaboration with Riceball Photography, there will be a 20% discount on Michael Freeman's books for this session. Selected titles of Michael Freeman's books will be on sale at the session.
COLOR MANAGEMENT TALK
In modern digital photography days, how does one trust the color fidelity of the images been captured? Do we trust our camera LCD screen or do we trust our display monitors or do we trust our printers? From capture to print, color management has always been a challenging topic for photography lovers. With the support of Datacolor systems, Triston will share on some finer tips on the proper workflow for management of color on photographic images.
Formally trained in Finearts through the Art Elective Programme, majoring in Theatre Studies at the National University of Singapore, Triston has always been attracted to the creative realm. Distilling years of experience in traditional and performing arts, Triston has since chosen photography as his vehicle to push the boundaries of art.
As a commercial photographer, Triston has worked on a wide range of projects for various MNCs, statutory boards and educational institutions such as Pontiac Land, Bank Julius Baer, Credit Suisse, ING Bank, Thailand Tourism Board and Laos Tourism Board.
Being acknowledged as one of Asian Geographic’s Best Photographer of the Decade, educating budding photographers is another of Triston’s personal missions. Through photography seminars and photoclinics, Triston aims to share the knowledge he has accumulated over the years. Most recently, Triston has the privilege of shooting the wedding of King of Bhutan for Getty Images.
