It’s All About the Light!

You’ve heard it before, and it’s true! Photography is all about the light. A mediocre subject in great light makes a much more compelling subject than a great subject in mediocre light. But what is great light? Greg’s presentation will explore how to recognize great light, the three qualities to look for, and how to anticipate great light and be in the right place at the right time. Understanding great light will improve your photos, and improve your odds of making a great image.
