Morning presentation
Understanding Composition - Light is to photography as paint is to a painter: without light, our art would never progress beyond mere blank canvasses, unrealized potential never brought to life. Professional photographer Bryan Peterson will share his years of field experience chasing the light and trying to find the right combination of color, light, mood, and composition to bring his subjects to their fullest expression.

Afternoon Presentation
Learning to See Creatively - Once you've captured the light in the field, it is important to optimize your photos during the digital processing phase to bring them to their fullest potential. Bryan will discuss a number of techniques that are part of his personal digital darkroom workflow for unlocking the magic contained with the digital raw file.
