Learn how to modify the harsh sunlight of Southern California when making outdoor portraits. On Saturday, May 19th, photographer George Simian returns to Crowell Public Library to demonstrate how to change the quality of that light for beautiful images. Attendees will learn how to use hand-held diffusers and reflectors while making a portrait, in both sunlight and shade, right behind the Library. The images will be shown in real time on a laptop and then after the shoot, students will follow George into the Barth Community room to see the images on the large screen and discuss the best strategies for improving outdoor portraiture. Attendees are urged to bring their favorite subjects, whether it’s Mom or a best friend, and snap away.
George Simian, a leading commercial photographer and educator (UCLA Extension, Samy’s Camera) will show you how to master basic lighting concepts and skills, managing both the quality (hard vs. soft) and the direction (frontal vs. indirect) of light. A longtime member of the American Photographic Artists, George started out as a photography teacher in 1973 at Cornell University, excited to "expose" newcomers to the wonders of the latent silver image, and its magical manifestation in the darkroom. When his career moved on to commercial photography, he became a mentor to his assistants, as well as presenting one-day seminars for photographers' organizations, and for various manufacturers. Relocating to Los Angeles, George re-engaged with teaching and continues to offer individual coaching, meeting with emerging photographers with varying interests, and at different experience levels. He finds it amazing how much one can accomplish when working side-by-side, focused exclusively on the issue at hand.
