Exploring the Light

Rick Sammon

In this informative and fun-filled presentation, Rick Sammon will begin by sharing his people, wildlife, landscape and travel pictures from around the globe – illustrating the difference between taking pictures and making pictures.

For every image, Rick will share a photographic technique, digital darkroom tip, or a photo philosophy. He will cover seeing the light, controlling the light, playing with the light, HDR photography and some composition techniques.

This is not just a slide show of pretty images. Rick is here to share what he’s learned over his many years as a professional photographer.

As Rick “takes” us on a visual journey through the exciting world of digital photography, he will share some of his favorite Lightroom and CS6 enhancements.
