Meeting Highlights

June 12 - Jamie Konarski Davidson:
Embracing "What If"
Creativity in Camera and In Post.

As visual artists, we see the world differently. As such, we need to embrace the "what if" springboard to try new techniques and experiment with different ideas without worrying about what others think or whether anyone will appreciate those efforts or the results. Creating artistic images with your camera to go beyond the documentary includes techniques that are both simple and complex. It requires an open mind and a level of intention. While some images can be made completely in camera, others require a partnership between the photographer, camera and computer. In this program, Jamie Konarski Davidson will share how she works with the camera to match her vision and makes further choices in post processing to create images that are uniquely "Jamie." Techniques include multiple exposures, motion blurs, zooms and spins, Lensbaby, lightboxes, long exposures and infrared paired with textures, image blending and more.

June 26 - Annual Meeting
Election of officers, social, sharing of ideas for the direction of the club, snacks, etc. Don will send out an email with details.
