“Shoot The Light”

“Shoot The Light”

"Shoot The Light" photography seminar with Charles Glatzer

October 15, 2016 – 9:30AM to 4PM
Gannon University
Zurn Hall, Room 107 (W 7th Street)

Seminar Description

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. “Light Illuminates, Shadow Defines”.

Every Instructional Photographic Seminar has but one goal; offering the participant the most education for the dollar. Planned by a professional photographer for photographers, each is unique, dedicated to bringing you only the finest in photographic instruction. Our workshop schedule with new and exciting venues are sure to please even the most discerning wildlife and nature photographer.

Expand your photographic horizons. Learn to “Shoot the Light.”

"A Natural World in Three Perspectives"

"A Natural World in Three Perspectives"

  • Sensory Winery & Art Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

PASNWPA member Christine French, together with local nature artists, John Ballard and Carrie Anne Tredo, will be having a three-person show titled “A Natural World in Three Perspectives.”  

Opening Reception is
Friday, May 20 from 7-9

Enjoy food and wine tastings! 

The common theme of these artists is nature.

Each one of them depicts nature in their art, but in a variety  of ways with  different materials.  John Ballard creates unusual wood assemblages of dimensional wall art from driftwood, glass, rock and debris, that he  finds on the shores of Lake Erie. Carrie Ann Tredo, like John also creates assemblages.  Her assemblages are  from wood, found, organic, and natural materials. A common theme for her work is trees. Her work is very tactile and 3-dimensional.

Whereas, Christine French’s primary work is Photographic Collage. She takes her printed photos of nature, and then  works into them with paint, markers, and polymer medium. Her work is both colorful and textural. However, like John and Carrie she does also work in wood. For this show, she will be showing five sculptural driftwood wall  Avatars. In addition, Chris will be displaying glass mosaic windows made from beach glass and other materials.
