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.
Traveller's Tales from Japan and New Zealand Respectively.
Sit back, relax and enjoy a visit to Japan, and then New Zealand, courtesy of Judith Shields and Wendy Jacobs tonight. Although Judith had to be mede-vacced out of Japan towards the end of her holiday, we are grateful that she managed to take lots of photos before her fall. Tonight she will take us on a virtual tour of Japan.
Wendy went to New Zealand with Perth’s own Venture Photography and she will share some of her photographs from this trip. Be prepared to be entertained, and possibly even inspired to visit these places one day.
Travellers Tales By Kim Stewart
Covering his Travels in
Travellers Tales - Kim Stewart in South America
This presentation will cover two aspects of Kim Stewart's recent trip around South America. The first part of his presentation will be about travelling light. Kim will share some of the equipment he takes with him (what’s in his bag), and to some extent how he managed his workflow during his trip. In the second part of the evening, Kim will discuss his thoughts and impressions, share some of his photos and the stories behind them and tell us what worked and what didn’t.
