Free Demos: Using Color to Control Mood in Photo and Video With Daniel Norton
Thursday, March 17th, 3 Sessions: 12am - 1:30pm, 2pm - 3:30pm, 4pm - 5pm,

Join Daniel Norton (Adorama Pro's senior lighting consultant and trainer) for three live, hands-on demos about using the color of light to control mood in photos and videos.

Visual storytellers use many elements to shape the emotional reaction of their viewers, and the color of light is a powerful tool that can help creative professionals create the right atmosphere. While lens choice and composition, as well as the size and style of the light source, are some of the most common considerations made when setting up a scene, the color of the lights is an equally important, but frequently overlooked, consideration.

Attendees will learn how to use lighting gels to infuse scenes and images with subtle or extreme colors. Daniel will shoot the same scene three times, and will change the color of the lights and the way the actors react each time. The same general lighting scheme will be maintained, blocking for the actors and camera angles.

Aside from learning how to use color to add depth and emotion to their scenes and images, attendees will also learn the most useful lighting gels to add to their kits.

There will be three unique sessions. RSVP to one or all three sessions.

Seminar: What to Do When Your Photo is Stolen With Daniel Foster
Friday, March 18th, 11am - 1pm

Join Daniel Foster, professional photographer and founder of Pixsy, in a seminar where attendees will be taught the best ways to find copies of their work online. Attendees will learn what steps to take if they suspect their work has been used without authorization, and how to resolve the issue legally. Daniel will also explore common misconceptions about sharing images online, and how photographers can protect their images against unlicensed use.

Pixsy is a reverse image search engine that scours the web for duplicates of original photos. The service has helped more than 10,000 photographers find duplicates of their original work and fight image theft.

Panel Discussion: Women Photographers With Dorie Hagler
Sunday, March 20th, 11am - 1pm

The panel will include a street photographer, a war photographer, a fashion photographer, a fine arts photographer, a photojournalist, and a photo editor.
