The Photographers Showcase series highlights the work of B&H Event Space alumni who are currently engaged in creating poignant bodies of work and are influenced by the free programs that the B&H Event Space produces. Each photographer will showcase their current projects and offer insight into what is behind their thought process and the gear they use to make their photographs, in 40-minute segments. In this first and inaugural Photographers Showcase, we bring you three locals: Charles Chessler   Coming from a theater background, Charles scours the streets and parks of New York City, looking for quintessential moments to capture. Whether it be a Central Park raptor or a construction worker high above, few things escape Charles's lens. Charles can be found at New York art fairs selling his photographs or across the city making photographs. Visit Charles’s website  and follow Charles on  Facebook Gene Lowinger   An astute street photographer, Gene  started off in the wet darkroom with a Leica M4 and transitioned to digital seamlessly. Gene is concerned with the story being told in the black-and-white image and has built up a strong body of work consisting of the vanishing Lower East Side neighborhood. When Gene is not shooting he can be found with a fiddle tucked under his chin, making music.  Visit Gene’s  website  and  blog John Skelson   A Staten Island native, John Skelson has been patrolling the Kill Van Kull waterway, photographing the maritime traffic since the 1970s with his Nikon. Recently, the New York Times Lens Blog featured his ongoing work. When he's not shooting tug boats or hanging at the Event Space, John is teaching photography at the Art Lab in Snug Harbor. View John’s  website  and his weekly  blog.

Landscape photography entails the capture of light, color, shape, texture, and emotion to convey your opinion about the natural world. While technical proficiency is important, it is the meaning and vision that you impart to an image that often makes the difference between success and failure. Each of us has a unique and personal vision to express, and Robert Rodriguez Jr believes this is the key to developing—and significantly improving—your photography. In this presentation, Rodriguez discusses how these ideas form the basis of his landscape photography, and how the "art and craft" combine to achieve what is most important, a meaningful image. He talks about not only the basic hows of landscape photography, but more importantly, the whys that can help you begin to "make" meaningful images instead of just hoping for good results. Rodriguez uses real-world examples and his own experiences as a landscape photographer throughout the lecture, and there is a Q+A period as well.

Lighting is easily the most important aspect of photography. You could even go as far as saying that lighting is photography: It is even in the word itself: "photography" is Greek for "light drawing," or "drawing with light." Without light, you cannot take photos. It is perfectly possible to take amazing photographs with a very simple camera—as long as the lighting is good. The opposite holds, as well: If you are taking photos in a situation where the lighting is truly appalling, having the fanciest, most expensive camera in the world isn’t going to help you capture the photographs you want. Join Bob Davis as he explores light and the combination of available light and Speedlites. Through this discovery of light you will see the power and possibilities of using all the light available to you, creating quality anywhere, anytime.
