Renowned Professional Photographer to Speak on Black and White Photography Techniques at CT Valley Camera Club Meeting, August 6.

Renowned Professional Photographer to Speak on Black and White Photography Techniques at CT Valley Camera Club Meeting, August 6.

AREAWIDE: The guest speaker at the Monday, August 6 meeting of the Connecticut Valley Camera Club (CVCC) will be the renowned professional photographer Michael Rice, who will give a talk titled, “In the Shadow of the Masters - Black and White Photography.” The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Lymes’ Senior Center, 26 Town Woods Rd., Old Lyme, Conn. All are welcome. There is no admission charge.

Black and white photography stirs our emotions and poses questions in our minds. The interplay of what is revealed in the light and what is hidden in the dark spins the story. Sometimes what is concealed in the shadows is more important than what is in plain sight. How the photographer creates dramatic black and white images allows those that view them to use their imagination to complete the story.

In his inspirational talk, Rice will elaborate on these concepts, sharing ideas and techniques, illustrated by examples from his own work.  His talk will provide guidance on how the photographer can learn to think in black and white, making best use of available light and shadow, and will also provide practical tips on camera settings and post-processing techniques.

Rice is a fine art landscape artist with a passion for black and white photography reminiscent of the old large-format masters. Dramatic light, a smooth tonal range, and textural image details evoking the atmosphere of times past characterize his work. His color work is lush and vibrant, manipulating colors more like an oil painter. Light is playfully manipulated to create drama and intrigue.

He honed his craft through the years working as a commercial, portrait, and wedding photographer, photo-retoucher, and printmaker. His philosophy is that most photographers are either camera-oriented or computer-oriented, meaning that while some photographers excel at taking pictures, others excel at enhancing images in the computer. He believes that to take photography to the next level, today’s successful photographer must be proficient in both disciplines. His premise is that knowing what is possible in the digital darkroom aids the photographer in the decision-making process in the field.

Rice’s work can be viewed on his website at
