Light. It's the most transformative tool at any photographer's disposal. Whether the lens is turned to people, wildlife, or landscapes, the creative use of light can often make the difference between a snapshot and a powerful photograph. This instructional video provides a look into one photographer's approach to seeing and using available light. Ibarionex Perello, author of the acclaimed book Chasing the Light: Improving Your Photography with Available Light, takes you on a visual journey through the streets of Los Angeles, not only explaining his approach to creating great street photography but also teaching how to develop your own way of seeing. You get the experience of shooting over his shoulder as he explains how he considers light, shadow, and color, and how he approaches strangers for street portraits. This video will help you find your own way of seeing as well as empower you to overcome the obstacles that can stand in the way of your creativity.
