Exploration #11: “Further Adventures in black and White”
Monday July 12th 7pm to 9pm
DEADLINE - Images due by midnight July 10th.
In the last exploration we started a journey into the powerful visual and emotional possibilities of black and white images. Putting this into practices requires making sound judgements about the translation of the technical and evocative characteristics of the image into an impactful image that elicits the strongest response from the viewer.
We often find it difficult to assess the potential of a photograph to evoke a strong reaction because of our own response to the image - our personal experience of the place, the circumstance, and our relationship to the subject matter. So, we should carefully think about the translation of the captured image through post-processing in order to accomplish our personal vision and its impact on the viewer.
This exploration requires that you carefully reflect and consider the whole process of “image taking” to “image making” and be prepared for a more intense critique and discussion of your work in so that you may improve, grow, and benefit from constructive analysis and feedback.
1. Submit one black and white photograph of a formal or casual human-interest portrait that illustrates a clear aspect of the subject’s personality.
2. Submit a black and white photograph of a person or people in a street or outdoor scene where you believe the image illustrates an impactful context with that environment or relationship among individuals.
Be prepared to talk about your post processing as well as your thoughts and feelings about your images and why you feel it is compelling to you and especially to your audience. Shoot in RAW if possible.
A limit of two images per submission in .jpg format.
DEADLINE - Images must be submitted by midnight July 10th
