I taught a workshop on portrait lighting and using Adobe Lightroom to the Youngstown Photography Society last night. Very engaged group (and tasty food) !!

Nice press in the San Diego CityBeat about the panel talk!

Digable talk
“Stephen Chalmers’ landscape photos are lovely but eerie—he’s focused on sites where notorious serial killers dumped dead bodies. Chalmers’ work makes viewers question whether it’s OK to turn heinous acts into art. That question, and others swirling around the intersection of art and crime, will be the topic of a panel discussion and art reception, Shadow Spaces from The Art, from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday, March 20, in Room LL108 at the SDSU Library. Chalmers’ photographs and a collection of artwork by prisoners will be on view. The event is put on by The Art | Crime Archive, a project “devoted to the study of the spaces where art and crime overlap.” Chalmers will be joined by UCSD researcher Laura Pacenco and Art | Crime Archive co-directors Brian Goeltzenleuchter and Paul Kaplan. If you can’t make the panel discussion, the two exhibitions are on view and open to the public through the end of the month.”

I used this biennial show as a sort of rough draft to work out some exhibition issues for a new body of work. Still working out the kinks, but I’m pretty excited!
