Where will our photographic journey take us next? Did I hear someone say, Africa?
Joining us from Morocco, British-born Darren Lewey will be presenting a two-part presentation on the following topics:
Shooting a Landscape for the First Time to Get Great Images
Displaying landscapes from Morocco, Spain, and Switzerland taken in 2016 & 2017. The presentation will provide a checklist for club photographers to use on location to go about getting high-quality work from a first-time visit.
The talk will cover:
Balancing planning whilst keeping an open mind.
Adjusting your approach to suit conditions.
Making Portraits of Strangers
Capturing standout location portraits is perhaps one of the most challenging areas of photography. However, a highly rewarding one when accomplished well. Found portraiture as opposed to studio work is really about thinking on your feet when working with lighting, background, pose, and message. The history of portrait photography follows our very move especially when we raise the camera to capture someone from another culture. Understanding how to represent someone faithfully but with photographic charm is a dance of interpersonal skills and technique.
