Light enhances every aspect of
Light enhances every aspect of a photograph when used well and thoughtfully.
During this workshop with documentary and travel photographer, Deanna Ng, participants will be given different exercises that will help understand how to use light effectively. Shooting during the ‘golden hour’ of sunrise and sunset to dusk, you will gain a better sensitivity to light and how you can incorporate it with other compositional tools.
Our first session will take us to the Marina Bay area, as we take note of how the late afternoon to evening light changes the architecture and space. Our second session brings us to a jetty by the sea, as we photograph people and landscape in the early morning light. We will discuss topics like shooting in changing light, metering, getting the right exposure, appreciating the quality of light as it interacts with subjects, learning to anticipate your shoots.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
In 2006, the University of Missouri, USA, selected Deanna as an International Participant for the Missouri Photo Workshop. Inspired by the history of the workshop, she became interested in how photography documents change. She worked on Lien Foundation’s Life Before Death Campaign to photograph hospice and terminally ill patients and their families in their last days. The photos were compiled into albums for the families and resulted in a solo exhibition at the Month of Photography (Asia) 2009. Her belief that photography allows a unique way of looking at life was reinforced when she was commissioned by development agency, Deutsche Gesellschaft fr Technische Zusammenarbeit, to document 20 Women in Micro- Financing in Indonesia.
As an educator, she has taught photography workshops at numerous schools in Singapore with Objectifs and a mentor for the National Arts Council’s Noise Apprenticeship programme in 2010. She was also involved as a judge for the Noise Photo Competition is 2009 and 2010.
Deanna was one of the nominees shortlisted for the inaugural Icon de Martell Cordon Bleu Photographer of the Year Award in 2010.
