Shoot the Light

Presentation by Keynote Speaker, Chas Glatzer

Fee - Free

This presentation is guided by Chas’ underlying belief that success in any photographic discipline is largely characterized by the ability to see and understand the quality, quantity, and other physical properties of light and how they relate to your subject and capture medium. He will give you the knowledge and tools you need to take control of your imagery and produce wildlife photographs that are a cut above. Emphasis will be placed on the five key ingredients that are paramount to consistently producing successful imagery in the digital world : knowing the fundamentals, familiarity with your equipment, being pro-active, knowing your subject, and knowing your way around the digital darkroom. You will walk away from this program with a renewed sense of confidence and a new mindset that will enable you to consistently produce creative, well exposed, and provocative story telling images.
