University of Maine Cooperative Extension is pleased to be joined by professional photographer David Elliott for this photography webinar, where he will share tips on composition, lighting and the effect of color on the viewer’s perception.
Have you ever looked at two images of the same scene where one talked to you and the other said nothing? Why? Composition of the two is the answer. We’ll explore the impact of color on our perception and the effect of lighting.
Bio: David’s first experience with photography was at a young age with a box camera he received from his father. He took a great number of black and white images in those early years. While attending the University of Arizona, David and his fellow students, spent hours in the desert photographing everything from desert wild flowers to old mine sites to archeological sites to lightning over Tucson. During the past two decades, he has returned to the art of photography working in black and white, color, mixed media and video, while making the transition from silver to digital. While living in Italy, he continued to work on his photography by recording architecture detail, the hill towns and art as shown in design. Today, he has expanded his work on portraiture and the natural world, his current interests including portraits, landscape, and nature fine art, especially flowers.
