GROSSMONT COLLEGE – The Photography department hosted Tim Meyer, throughout the last week of March.  Meyer, a professional photographer and professor at Brooks Institute, gave seminars on portrait lighting.

Covering an array of material – from light modifiers to lighting ratios, to just knowing your photo history and how it is relevant today – and speaking to an array of photographers – from complete beginners to those with years of experience –Meyer’s seminar certainly enlightened us all.
