Owen-9353_Paul_PPSNYSworkshop_2014_RetouchEvery artist works in a preferred medium. As photographers, our medium is light. For us, the use of light and shadow creates the illusion of depth in two dimensional images. Light has several variables that we also must take into consideration and control when making images: direction, intensity, color temperature and quality. What defines a true professional is the ability to see the light, determine if it is perfect for the task at hand and then have the capability to modify or substitute the source if it is not. 0002_Retouch_LRLogo

My program is designed to raise your ability to see the light, select the correct photographic tools, plus utilize the proper lighting techniques in order to create three dimensional portraits and candids every time you hit the shutter. It’s all about being able to consistently control your illumination to suit every situation and subject.
