PROGRAM:

MARTY GILMAN

“LIGHT, LINES, LIGHTROOM”
Marty’s talk will describe how light, lines, and Lightroom are all intertwined. We photograph not our subject, but the light reflected from our subject. Light is altered as it passes through water, diminishing contrast and colors. Using our knowledge and photographic tools, we can overcome this challenge to produce the best possible image. We begin by understanding the properties of light, how that applies to composition, and eventually how we can control and manipulate light and our resulting composition. He will also show how lines can either detract from a composition or improve it and describe his Lightroom quick fixes.
