    Exploration #17: “Measurement”

     

    February 8th 2022 - 7.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m.

     

    Submission Deadline: Images due by midnight February 6th 2022

    There are many aspects of daily life that are easily missed and yet are seldom the subject of photographic exploration.  Every day, many times of day, we use, depend upon, or refer to, methods and tools of measurement that are important or even critical to our actions, our health, and our interaction with others.

    You can’t effectively, monitor your health, cook your dinner, repair things, drive anywhere, design, dress for the day’s weather or create anything without referring to measurements and/or calculations in some form. Measurement is an essential aspect of making good photographic images as well (intensity, distance, colour etc.), The core aspects of this exploration should be graphic simplicity and enjoyment of the process of creating solutions to express the simple essence of measurement.

    Time, weight, length, volume, angle, speed, area, pressure, rotation, light intensity, colour, force, flow, temperature, and density, are just a few of the possibilities.  Earthquakes, hurricanes, radiation, asteroid impacts, and astronomical distance are a little more difficult - but even they are measurable.

    Select just one or two ideas to research and explore and keep your images simple using strong composition and design principles.  Submit up to three images in either colour or black and white in .jpg format to robin@imaginacorporation.com.

    Exploration #16: “The Industrial Age”

    January 11th 2022 - 7.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m.

    Submission Deadline: Images due by midnight January 9th

    Exploration sessions are designed to challenge participants to confront new concepts, new subjects and new ways of see the world around us. Our environment is changing rapidly and so we often miss the opportunity to record aspects of work and occupations that have disappeared or may well disappear soon.  Yesterday’s occupations and methods of production have given way to entirely new pressures on life and particularly on work as we have known it. But what about the past? What do we remember and what can we record before it is lost?

    This Exploration focuses on industrial production - not a very common subject for photographers and yet an important one with all the challenges and pressure of climate change, demographics, transportation and economics.  What to photograph for this topic? Older factories and industrial spaces, workers, assembly lines, tools in action, inner workings of old machines, industrial technology, images that reflect the age of industrial life and manufacture.

    Submission should be of photographs taken for this project avoiding cliché subjects such as rusty cars, old trains, etc. that do not reflect the processes of industrial production. Existing portfolio images should be used for reference, exposition or inspiration.

    A limit of three different images per submission (either colour or black and white) in .jpg format.

    Exploration #15 “The Aesthetics of Bokeh”

    November 8th – 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

    Submission deadline – Images due by midnight November 6th

    Bokeh is an English word that is a translation of the Japanese word for blur - but it is not just blur – it generally refers to specular out-of-focus highlights and specular reflections. Bokeh can be a complement to your image, but it can also be a distraction.

    The Bokeh effect is created using a fast aperture (low f-number: e.g. f1.8) and most often using a 50 mm or 85 mm lens, although other focal lengths can create the effect. It depends on the particular design of the lens, the specific aperture, the distance of the lens to the subject and the distance of the background elements behind the subject.

    In this exploration the task is to research and experiment bokeh and create images that illustrate the effect in different situations. It can be in your personal space, studio or outside (nighttime is especially good).

    A limit of three different images per submission (colour or black and white) in .jpg format
