Bonjour Photo Unionians!
Our January meeting featured our collective vision of a single date – December 28, 2014. It was fascinating to explore your day, your creativity, your vision. Fascinating too was the notion of our photography – a series moments – combining to form a broader vision of time, our group, and ourselves. As expected, the work was diverse, compelling and intelligent. Thank you for making the time, and the work.
In recent months, we’ve explored light, and darkness. We’ve explored finding beauty in the usual, the near, the otherwise unnoticed. For February, we are applying these ideas to our first official Black and White assignment. Subject matter is open. While revisiting existing color images and using this assignment as a post-production exercise is an option, I would love to see you experiment with “seeing in black and white” - considering light, object and compositional elements in terms of their value specifically, versus seeing in terms of hue, as is inherent for most color photographers. The skill set associated with seeing in black in white – sensitivity to lightness and darkness, translating three dimensional, real-life color and considering this translation, in real time, to envision an end result – are tools that will prove invaluable in realizing one’s vision moving forward, be it in black and white, color, or some other form yet to be defined.
I very much look forward to your creations. We all do. Enjoying the lengthening days, and see you February 10!
