Regular Meeting – May 2017

When: Tuesday, May 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Where: Algonquin College, Room 104

Guest Speaker: TANIA MARSH - PHOTOSENSITIVE ALUMINIUM AND STILL LIFE PHOTOS

Tania studied photographic techniques at Algonquin College and has a degree in Art History and Arts Administration. With her interests in art and photography, vintage interior design and the natural world, she pulls together unique creative passions that are reflective in her work.

Tania has founded The Silver Shingle, a signage and creative imagery company that specializes in photosensitive anodized aluminum. Each metal plate is individually hand developed in a darkroom whereby the image is embedded within the photosensitive aluminium. The end result is a unique and attractive way to display photos in which the images take on sheen-like quality that draws viewers in and captures the imagination.

We look forward to seeing her images and exploring new ways to display our images.

TWO COMPONENTS OF LIGHT - QUALITY & QUANTITY
and
OFF CAMERA FLASH
with Paul Grant

Paul will start off the evening with a short presentation on Two of the Components of Light - Quality and Quantity. This, of course, applies to all types of photography and lighting. Then he will cover how to use off camera flash, the equipment required and how to manage ambient and flash exposure. This will be followed by a photo session using one off camera flash to demonstrate the two components (quality and quantity) discussed in the presentation. Paul plans on shooting tethered so images will be visible on the screen. We have no doubt that you will find Paul’s presentation informative and very helpful in creating enlightened images.

SHARE YOUR IMAGES (maximum of 2 please)

This segment is open - if you want to share a B&W image that you captured/created following Chris Crain’s presentation last month or have an image that you have a question about or one that you just want to share with us, please send them to Linda at lindament@bell.net by noon on Tuesday, May 2nd.
