Virtual – Making good images in bad situations

May 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Two Mondays, May 17th & 24th, 2021 – 2:00 – 4:00 pm EST 

We have all encountered situations where it is nearly impossible to make a good picture.  The background is awful, the light is bad, the subject is uncooperative, there is too much going on, the situation was not as expected……..these are some of the difficulties and challenges professionals face each day when confronting the world with their cameras.  Using real examples from both students and professionals we will seek to turn liabilities into assets by developing strategies to create beauty, and visual impact where it may not be readily apparent.  We will dissect images, and real world photographic situations in a way in which will allow students to confront nearly any environment, and you will come away armed with a new found confidence.   Lighting, composition, people skills, and learning to step back in order to see a situation from other angles will all be a part of this engaging and interactive workshop.


Adam Stoltman has worn the hat of both photographer an editor and has often had to find ways to produce compelling imagery in the worst of situations.  As a picture editor at the New York Times Sunday Magazine and daily newspaper he helped shape visual coverage of world events including the fall of Communism and the Eastern Bloc, Tiananmen Square, The first Gulf War and the Oil Fires of Kuwait, The Barcelona Olympics and myriad feature stories on often challenging and sensitive topics, working on tight deadlines and difficult circumstances.  While in charge of feature photography at Sports Illustrated, he helped oversee the expansion of the visual element for all feature stories.   His photographic work has appeared in Time, Newsweek, LIFE, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times Sunday Magazine and daily newspaper,  New York, Stern, Paris Match and a host of other publications internationally.  He has covered 12 Olympics and countless sporting events, and produced feature stories on artists and other notables.  In 2012, he documented Asian American communities nationwide tied to the largest ever public health grant directed to these communities, a project ultimately exhibited in the rotunda of the Russell Senate office building in the Unites States Capitol and sponsored buy Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii.
