Painting with light is an exciting and artistic way to portray your subject in a completely unique manner. Using the darkness of night as the backdrop and any subject as the canvas, the photographer works like a painter using flashlight to illuminate, highlight, and emphasize their subject. Using your own light source to illuminate the scene provides unrivaled creativity in rendering your final image. Experimentation with color, intensity and angle of the light source creates limitless possibilities and adds another technique to your portfolio. The tools are simple and the technique easy to master. Come join professional photographer and author Tim Cooper as he shares the tips and tricks to create light-painting masterpieces. Tim Cooper  began his career as a commercial and assignment photographer working with clients such as The North Face, The Ritz Carlton, Vasque boots, 3M, Blue Note Records, and The International Heart Institute.

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.

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.
