Dana Nordlund and John Metcalfe – WASTING LIGHT
Someone once asked Arnold Newman if he ever worked with available light. He answered, “Oh yeah, I work with tungsten, studio flash, window light and out in the bright sun, whatever is available”. Instead of Wasting Light, we will work with available light as well as add artificial light while keeping the look natural. We will learn the process working with reflectors, diffusion, flash, custom white balancing and hand held metering. We will be shooting outside (weather permitting), with and without flash, inside by window light and in a studio setting.
One of the basic characteristics of photography is to create depth and a three dimensional image on a two dimensional piece of paper. Colors, tones, highlights & shadows are what we have to work with. Since it is necessary to give shape to the face and have a long tonal range, it is essential to position the head and face in a manner to allow shading and shape to be portrayed. The placement of shadows is equally as important as the highlights.
The PPSNYS, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not for profit association formed in 1905 solely to instruct its members and the general public in photography; and to create, foster, promote and encourage the exchange of information among its members and the public.
The PPA is a worldwide association that exists to assist its members in achieving their professional, artistic and fraternal goals; promote public awareness of the profession; and to advance the making of images in all of its disciplines as an art, a science and a visual recorder of history.
