Welcome to Down the Shore Photography we shoot along the Jersey Shore and with the training and trips offered through Adventures in Photography we shoot around the world.
We have local meetups to shoot in locations in Monmouth and Ocean counties for photographers to learn from one on another and through Adventures in Photography our members have access to trips designed by photographers throughout the metropolitan area, the US and international locations.
We welcome all levels of photographers and hope that by shooting together we are creating learning opportunities.
LIGHT PAINTING OBJECTS SMALL and LARGE
Photography is all about capturing light and controlling the light adds an extra dimension to your photographs. In this online seminar I'll show how I use flashlights to paint objects small and large with light to give ordinary scenes and subjects a unique look. The technique is pretty easy, it just takes some practice to get the look you want. There are times when I want to the light to be smooth and even while other times I like it to be streaky.
I'll show you how to use a small penlight to give nearly any object in your house a special feel. You don't need special equipment, just a sturdy tripod. I'll show you how to modify your small light with aluminum foil to concentrate the beam and give you control over the scene.
For larger objects, like barns or bridges, during Blue Hour while there is still some color in the sky. It is the same technique as the indoor shoots, you just need a bigger flashlight.
No matter what you are lighting, controlling the light is fun and can take your photography to the next level.
Loren Fisher bio:
Working as a professional photographer since 1978, Loren Fisher has photographed subjects as diverse the Olympics in Seoul, Korea, eagles in Alaska, transporting horses in a 747 from Germany, the 106 covered bridges of Vermont, in the dressing room with the Rockettes and backstage with Bruce Springsteen.
Loren has published two photography books: “Pope John Paul II: An American Celebration” which documented the papal visit to New York, New Jersey and Baltimore and “Branson Backstage” which looks at the phenomenon of 35 live music theaters in Branson, Missouri.
Crawling through the woods, donning waders in swamps and searching out what’s good is what keeps Loren excited. While he has traveled to 50 states and 18 countries, Loren loves to seek out the beauty that surrounds him locally.
Loren can be found displaying his work at art shows year round from Florida to Vermont. He teaches workshops locally and at great destinations around the world including Iceland, Chile, France, Italy and Guatemala.
Loren started working in newspapers in 1978 as a staff photographer and worked for seven newspapers in Indiana, Ohio and New Jersey, plus USA Today as a photographer, photo editor and graphics editor. He was Managing Editor/Digital for two N.J. Gannett newspapers, the Home News Tribune and Courier News and oversaw the combined website. He is a past president of the New Jersey chapter of ASMP and is an adjunct professor at Rutgers University teaching photography, multimedia and video in the journalism department.
