Join us for a special talk by Matt Stock showing us his new body of work, a journey towards captive and manufactured mini-ecosystems found inside saltwater reef tanks. Using specialized lighting, filters, and post-production techniques a world that is both local and foreign, native and alien, becomes apparent.
Let your camera look up or down. Upward can make the subject seem grand, and downward can make it look vulnerable or insignificant.
You can pre-register days in advance, but the cutoff time to pre-register is no later than Midnight, Tuesday the 10th.
Shadows play an important part in images; they create contrast, reveal form and texture, conveying mood, and emotion.
Capture those strong shadows in a photograph that can transform an image into a special or even surreal image.
Not all images work as B&W. There is a lot of thought that goes into picking these images. This presentation will address these issues and explain the elements that are conducive to a great B&W image. Art will also focus on the tools available allowing us to turn a color image into black and white as well as several external factors
Bokeh comes from the Japanese word boke (ボケ), which means "blur" or "haze", or boke-aji, the "blur quality." Bokeh is pronounced BOH-Kə or BOH-kay.
Bokeh is defined as “the effect of a soft out-of-focus background that you get when shooting a subject, using a fast lens, at the widest aperture, such as f/2.8 or wider.” Simply put, bokeh is the pleasing or aesthetic quality of the out-of-focus blur in a photograph.
In photography today, a high-key image is one that is almost entirely very bright with very little or no dark shadows present. This is usually a creative decision made by the photographer, in order to create a certain mood in the image. A bright, "airy" image most often creates a light, pleasant mood, as opposed to a dark, shadowy image that most often creates a dramatic, romantic, or even scary mood.
