Coloratti Scott MacQuarrie presented a new X-Rite webinar in May 2013. The title of the webinar is Travel and Landscape Photography: Working in the Field with Scott MacQuarrie. Click the title to enjoy an archive of the webinar for you to watch on demand at your convenience.
Scott is a brand new X-Rite Coloratti member in Canada. He has been a photographer for about a decade and has traveled to every continent in the world in his lifetime. We caught up with Scott to talk about his love of photography and why he is particularly fond of photographing polar regions like Antarctica. I asked him how taking pictures in these environments is different than shooting in more temperate climates.
“You have to step back and think about our composition a bit,” he said. “Sometimes the subject you’re trying to capture is the color as opposed to the thing that is in front of you. Somebody made a quote that [says] ‘at some point in your photography you’re taking a picture of the light not the subject.’ In some of my compositions I was trying to capture the color of aqua blue.”
Scott talked at length with us about the “difficult light” in polar regions and how he controls the light at the end of the world. “In my work I try to capture the emotional effect of actually being there,” he says. “Good photography made up of a thousand little things that all come together to make a difference.”
To continue his work in polar regions, particularly Antarctica, Scott has started in Indigogo campaign called “Life in the Extreme.” He is offering limited edition prints of the work he will shoot during his next exhibition. Funds raised will help finance the expedition. In addition, 10% of all funds raised will go to the David Suzuki Foundation to support a variety of environmental and climate initiatives.
Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, driest, highest and most extreme continent on this planet. It has only been in the last 100 years or so that humans have had the technology to travel and explore Antarctica. It is still poorly understood even though it’s the subject of almost continuous study. It is Life in the Extreme. CLICK HERE to learn more about “Life in the Extreme” and how you can participate.
