“success in photography, is dependent on being able to grasp those supreme instants which pass with the ticking of a clock, never to be duplicated - so light, balance - expression must be seen - felt as it were - in a flash, the mechanics and technique being so perfected in one as to be absolutely automatic”. Edward Weston
The word PHOTOGRAPHY was first used by Johann von Maedler. It is based on the Greek photos “light” and graphe “representation by means of lines” or “drawing” together meaning “drawing with light”.
Robert Meyer believes that the two essential elements in a good photograph are vision and light. Vision is the foundation of a good photo which determines the way a photographer uses light. This can be the manipulation of natural light or the creation of light through strobes or continuance light sources. In both cases, photographers are essentially painting with light. Accomplishing the use of light for a specific effect results in a photograph that reveals what the photographer wants to convey. Light is the primary tool in fulfilling that vision.
Robert Meyer started his photography career more than 40 years ago. In that time period he has learned how to not only, see the light that can be controlled but to feel the light for that believable edge. That moment in time that reveals something special, a thought, an emotion, a feeling that will draw the viewer into the image for that shared experience.
