Next Meeting Monday 27 February - 11.00am

Hi Members,

Sorry for the delay. On Monday we start with the Show and Tell Segment on Natural Light. If you remember, the challenge was to send us two photos using different natural light sources.

If you haven't done so, please send a couple of photos to be included. Send to u3acameraclub@gmail.com

The main topic will be ABSTRACT IMPRESSIONIST PHOTOGRAPHY.

The lack of figurative references allows the viewer to explore the image in greater depth, lending their own meaning to the work, which creates a deeper connection with the audience. (Megan Kennedy)


Photography basics are light, shade, texture, tone and line. Abstract photography emphasises these. 




Something different.

SEE YOU ON MONDAY

Next Meeting - Monday 13 February - 11.00am

Hi Members,

Following John Rogers' talk on travel photography, at the last meeting, the challenge for the Show and Tell. Send us two photos of the most exotic places you've ever been to. Send two photos to u3acameraclub@gmail.com.

The main topic. presented by Diane will be THE USE OF NATURAL LIGHT in photography.


Photography is a visual communication. A good photograph should tell a story, evoke emotion and engage the viewer. The purpose of a photograph is to communicate visually.

Communicating Visually
Light is one element to which we must pay particular attention so as to communicate visually effectively. Light and composition are the most important elements of photography. After all the meaning of the word “Photograph” comes from the Greek; photo = light and graph = to draw. So photograph = to draw with light.


 





SEE YOU ON MONDAY
