Wow, it’s been a great and busy Fall workshop season for Kaz Arts Photography.  Gleason’s Gym & Historic Brooklyn, The Cloisters, Bushkill Falls & finally Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia coming up on November 6.
Everyone has been having a lovely time on the trips, learning a lot and producing some fantastic results.

Last week, we ran two workshops to the Cloisters Museum in Manhattan.  The museum is a replica of a medieval French cloister and houses a vast collection of medieval art and architecture.  Almost all of the stone walls, pillars and doors  have actually been brought over from former monasteries and cloisters in Europe, particularly France.  Why come to The Cloisters for a photography workshop?  Because it is a great study in understanding light and composition.   Those are the nuts and bolts of photography, right?  The way the light pours into the windows and the way shadows are cast on both sculptures and architectural designs can be breathtaking.

Please enjoy the work of some of last week’s participants below:

Kerry’s dream was to have her bridal portraits done while riding horseback on  a Friesian.  Well, we made it happen.  One of our clients knows a number of horse breeders in Hunterdon county, and we made a connection.  The horse you see here is named Fjoory, originally from Holland.  We’ve developed a nice relationship with the breeder, so hopefully we will be able to do photo workshops with horse and model sometime very soon.  Enjoy the photos!

I am happy to announce that this week’s Tips & Technique article is from one of our forum’s contributing photographers, John-Paul Palescandolo.  John-Paul spends a great deal of his photographic endeavors experimenting with older and unique films.  He shares his findings with us this week in this two-part article on Infrared Photography.

Last week, we made clear the fact that the color of light can be perceived differently depending on whether it is natural or artificial light, the type of artificial light, and even the atmospheric conditions under which we are perceiving natural light.  The color of the light (further referred to herein as color temperature) is measured in the scientific scale of degrees Kelvin.  Colors that make up the light spectrum have a temperature associated with them.  The lower the Kelvin temperature (1500K-4800K), the redder the light (candle light, tungsten bulbs) and the higher the Kelvin temperature (5000K-10,000K) the bluer the light (sunny day, overcast day, even higher a clear deep blue sky).

All light is not created equal.  I say created, because there are many types of light that are manufactured (like light bulbs) in addition to the light we get from our local sun.  Even the light we receive from the sun does not appear to us the same all the time.

This issue comes up regularly in my own work when I do product photography, especially when it is critical to replicate precise colors for logos and branding.  (more…)
