Video: Light Illuminates, Shadows Define


In this B&H Event Space video, Canon Explorer of Light Chas Glatzer shares his thought process behind the making of an image and the techniques he uses to produce consistently successful images in the field. Learn how to see and understand light, its quality, physical properties, and other aspects; and grasp how relating these elements to your subject and equipment will allow you to take control of your imagery.

In this presentation, Glatzer covers his proactive in-field work methodology in depth. He identifies four elements as paramount to consistently producing successful imagery—knowing the fundamentals, familiarity with your equipment, being proactive, and understanding subject behavior. Be it birds, wildlife, or any other subject matter, this methodology will forever change the way you approach photography. The faster you are able to assess conditions and employ the tools and techniques necessary to render the image as desired, the more likely you are to accomplish your goal.

Most recently, Glatzer has been shooting wildlife with the EOS 7D Mark II and the new EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM. He’ll share why this camera/lens combination has been such a game changer for his shooting style and workflow in the field.
