Aspects of Photographic Light

Middle Georgia Camera Club

Northminster Presbyterian Church,
565 Wimbish Road Macon, GA
Thursday, April 3, 2014 – 7:00 to 8:30

“How do you create images with impact?  In this program I will present the aspects of light that bring out the most of what you are photographing.  Too often we take light for granted.  I will show images for the various aspects of light and explain how to use the light creatively.  There are three aspects of light – color, hardness and direction. I will cover color, soft light, hard light, side light, top light, front light and back light.  Sample images are used to show the way to use light to bring impact and an emotional response to images.

The color of light differs from the time of day.  Early morning light is yellow warm and rich, late day light can be cool or red warm.  How do you use the color to bring impact and a response from the viewer of your images?  Let me show you.. ” – John Mariana
