Perspective…is one of the greatest inventions in the History of Art and most photographers are only ever taught the Cliff’s Notes to Perspective, leading lines.
What did Perspective do and why would you want to learn about it?
Perspective allowed flat, 2D pictures to transform into life-like, 3D images that revolutionized how we see. It is how we went from cave paintings to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.
Renaissance artists invented the tools of Perspective so they could make flat walls feel like they were windows to another world. They brought the ceilings of cathedrals, the walls of palaces, and the most famous paintings of all time to life using Perspective.
Up until now the best lessons of Perspective were reserved for exclusive art educations. But I will take these lessons out of their Ivory Towers and bring them to photographers around the world and share these tools for a fraction of the price that I paid for me university degree.
My Goal is Simple:
It took over 200 years for artists to develop a system of perspective. But you can learn everything you need to know in less than 2 hours, with this course.
What can you do with Perspective?
It doesn’t matter if you photograph people, landscapes, still lives, weddings, travel, street or somewhere in between. These lessons can be applied to any type of photography and will make anything you do better.
What is a picture like without Perspective, flat, lifeless, and boring…and who wants pictures like that?!
You will learn what perspective really is, in plain english. We will identify 5 types of perspective that we will study in the course, so you have an outline of what to expect.
Linear perspective is the mother of all perspective. It is where things got started in the Renaissance and a great place for you to start too.
Let's explore the Curvilinear perspective and how photographer's can use these super-wide views to create depth.
Atmospheric perspective, why is it so easy to find, but so many photographers forget it?
Planar perspective, the tools for stacking subjects and creating layers.
Grow or shrink your subjects with Scale Perspective.
Where did perspective come from and how did it impact the world?
Major mistakes most photographers are making and don't even know it. Learn them before they take over your pictures.
In 2010, artist & photographer Adam Marelli opened the doors of his studio to train photographers in the lost lessons of classical art. After the success of his “One on One Mentoring Program” he was invited to give an experimental lecture at B&H Photo Event Space in New York City. The first lecture “Bridging the Gap” (170,000+ views) connected the worlds of art and photography for the first time, in a language designed for photographers. Following the success of his first lecture, he was invited for a second lecture “How to talk to Strangers” (over 180,000+ views) which was highest reviewed lecture in B&H Photo history.
When Marelli is not in the studio, he runs projects and workshops internationally under the “Adam Marelli Workshops” program. With a calendar of sold out workshops, he wanted to make his teachings available online to a larger audience because he knows that everyone can become a better photographer. Now all you have to do is join his lectures to see why he believes that Success is not Accidental.
