    Paul Bernstein: Seeing the Light

    Paul Bernstein: Seeing the Light

    Every artist works in a preferred medium and as photographers, our medium is light. For us, the awareness and control of highlights and shadows creates the illusion of depth in two-dimensional images. Light has several variables that we also must take into consideration when capturing our images. These include light’s direction, intensity, color temperature and quality. A professional can see the light, determine if it is ideal for the task at hand and then modify or substitute the source to create the perfect image.

    This presentation by photographer Paul Bernstein is designed to raise your ability to see the light, select the correct photographic tools and utilize the proper lighting techniques to create three-dimensional portraits, candids, scenics or still life images every time you press the shutter. The content is applicable to those at every level of photographic experience, as light is our common denominator.

    Paul Bernstein has been a professional photographer for over 40 years, during which time he has photographed over 2500 social functions, many theatrical events and countless portrait sessions. He is a master of lighting and posing, as well as candid photography. He is certified by the Professional Photographers of America and holds both Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees from PPA. He was the 2015 - 2016 president of the Professional Photographers Society of New York State, twice president of the Professional Photographers of Greater New York and has been a council member of the Professional Photographers of America since 2003.
