FROM SINGLE IMAGE TO COMPOSITE

 

 

Kelly Barker who spoke to us about her surrealistic fine art photography last year will be telling us how to composite several images together using Photoshop. She will take us through the process she uses for her artistic composites, how some of her ideas are generated and the photoshop tools she uses. Photoshop with its endless possibilities is one of her favourite tools. It allows her to push the boundaries of her photography.

photomarket

 

For the last 25 years Workshop Camera Club and NEPG have been running three Photomarkets each year. In recent years this activity has contributed about $2000 to our club annually.  Photomarket is a photographic swapmeet.  You can sell your photographic gear, digital, unwanted or antique, by booking a table ($15) with Bob Halligan (9364 5905) in early February or add your gear to the club table (contact Phil photomarket@workshopcameraclub.org.au).  You can also pay a modest fee of $5 to come and browse the merchandise and $3 to enjoy a cuppa and a piece of cake.

 

It is also a great place to catch-up with friends and chat about photography.

 

We need volunteers to assist with the setup, manage admissions, man the cafe, provide cakes etc and clean-up afterwards.

Landscape - Winter

SEE FIRST . . . WITH YOUR EYES

 

What one design principle do you associate with this image?

 

capture

 

During this workshop our speaker, John Reid, will explore the elements and principles associated with all visual communication and, in particular, the photographic image. He will develop your forensic eye by decoding the environment then recoding that environment into a unified photographic form. You will begin to understand the difference between recording a photograph and creating photographic art.

 

Get ready for a visual treat.

Photojournalism/Social Documentary

Photojournalism implies story-telling photographs such as are seen in the news media and periodicals, which may include documentary, contemporary life, illustrative, sport news or human interest.

Social Documentary is concerned with the portrayal and interpretation of society encompassing both human and non-human subject matter. It can include public space, graffiti, socio economic conditions etc which can be depicted without necessarily including human subjects. Social documentary images do portray a story but possibly not as overtly as photojournalistic stories.

In the interest of credibility, contrived situations or photographic manipulations which alter the truth are not acceptable. The story telling value of the photograph shall be weighed more than the pictorial quality.

Photography as Art

The purpose of this award is to encourage photographers to lift their thinking beyond traditional photographic criteria such as sharpness towards the qualities that characterise Great Art. This is easy to say but hard to define. Ideally the image should capture something eternal, beautiful, noteworthy, striking or unusual. It would be a rare image that achieved all of these!

People looking for examples should look to the all-time great art works for inspiration. Clearly these paintings will include but not be restricted to: portraits (such as Rembrandt, Leonardo), landscapes (such as Constable, van Gogh), abstracts (such as Rothko, Kandinsky), human form (such as Ruben, Rodin), and expressionism (such as Munch, Monet).

Any amount or method of photo manipulation is acceptable, however the original image must have been taken by a camera or some other photographic process (e.g. a scanner).

The aim should be to produce an image that one would not be surprised to find hanging in the Perth Art Gallery.
