Shoot the Light Instructional Photographic Workshops and Technical Series are comprehensive, designed to enhance your visionary skills, as well as your technical execution. Special emphasis is placed on creating images with Visual and Emotional Impact; using creative techniques, compositional elements and light to design in-camera images that are a cut above.
My success as a commercial photographer has been characterized by my ability to see and understand light. Wildlife photography is the same without exception. Light quantity, quality and direction should be assessed independently, although together they render the image. The amount of illumination determines the exposure, while the quality and direction of the light source relative to my position renders the scene and subject as viewed. Being aware of the lighting direction relative to the subject will allow you to choose a camera position that will enhance your unique vision, as well as the subject.
