Due to personal issues, Nic Stover will be unable to join us this evening. However, he has provided us with a taped version of the “Evaluating and Working with Light in Nature Photography” presentation for showing to the Club free of charge. Since there will be no Q&A with the speaker afterwards, we will be grouping attendees into breakout rooms for follow-up discussions on the presentation.


In this presentation Nic will talk about how the most important thing in photography is you and how you look through the light harvester (i.e. the camera), and the choices and decisions you make on how to collect the light that is falling in front of you onto your subjects of choice. Nic doesn’t have mastery of light nor the power to control it but he will talk about what he CAN control, that is – how he reacts to the light he is given (not the light he wants, but the light he is given). Nic considers the science and study of light to be one of our most important pursuits in photography. This presentation will increase your understanding of how to work with light.

Some of the topics covered in this presentation include but are not limited to:

1. New ways to think about light.
2. Discovering how we view light vs how our camera (light harvester) views light.
3. Exploring how the viewer’s eye moves through your images from the warms and cools to the brights and darks.
4. Discover the true value of light in our images.
5. Learn how photographers describe and talk about light.
6. Further your understanding of the ways in which light interacts with our scenes.
7. Develop the skills so you can you most effectively use light in your images.
8. Find new ways you can break out of your normal mode of working with light.
