Environmental portraits tell a story, by allowing a glimpse into the world of another individual, with a depth that surpasses the expressive capacity of a formal portrait. The subject is revealed by the photographer’s use of design, and composition of the background setting, with special attention to light, posture, expression, composition, and rapport. Each element divulges another aspect of the subject’s personality, requiring careful attention to detail. The technical concerns about light, camera angle and lenses, backgrounds, selective focus, and composition can sometimes overshadow the importance of making a connection with another human being. Honoring, respecting, and communicating with your subject are the first steps to making a meaningful, and storytelling photograph. However, it’s imperative to use good lighting techniques, both natural and with flash, to create the mood, and description of the scene, and capture the essence of the subject. Patience and observation help the photographer choose the right time and place, to capture the subject appropriately.

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.
