Mastering Natural light B

The word photography is derived from the Greek, “photo” meaning light and “graph” meaning drawing. Light is one of the most important tools in the photographer’s kit. By observing how light works in nature, students will learn how to employ natural light to make more expressive pictures. In this one day intensive class, we will study photographers who have used natural light to create strikingly powerful images and to understand how fleeting and expressive light can endow images with an emotional charge. Through demonstration, we will learn how the direction of the sun shifts throughout the day and year to plan strategies for finding good light indoors and out. Finally, we will explore NESOP’s Waltham neighborhood to discover places where the light is particularly photogenic.

About the instructor: Suzanne Revy

Suzanne Révy grew up in Los Angeles, California. After high school she moved to Brooklyn, NY where she earned a BFA in photography from the Pratt Institute. While there, she was immersed in making and printing black and white photographs. After art school, she worked as a photography editor in magazine publishing at U.S.News & World Report and later at Yankee Magazine. With the arrival of two sons, she left publishing, and rekindled her interest in the darkroom. She photographed her boys, their cousins and friends, and built three portfolios of pictures over a fifteen year period.  The first, a black and white series, explored the culture and nature of childhood play. The second, made with a lo-fi plastic camera and color film, represents her own emotional response as mother and witness to their growth and development. The third, a series of color pictures made in her home as her teen sons seemed to retreat into their rooms as she studied for her recently earned MFA at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.

Her work has been exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, the Fitchburg Art Museum in Fitchburg, MA, the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA, the Workspace Gallery in Lincoln, NE, the Camera Club of NY in NewYork City, the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH, and the New England School of Photography in Boston. Her work is represented by the Panopticon Gallery in Boston, MA.
