SESSION 2 – WHAT DO WE SEE

Looking at what makes a good photograph by developing creative and conscious use of design elements, such as texture, rule of thirds, leading lines etc. – and most of all the reading on meaning.

A littel recap on technique; on using your camera manually, balancing exposure with shutterspeed, aperture and ISO.

The group will go on a further walk (with bad weather we stay in the Studio) to improve your camera skills…

TTV photography workshop SESSION 2

This camera skill program of mine TTV (ThroughTheViewfinder) saw its progression with a nice small group into the second session. Each session is made of an hour talk (in my studio space on the second floor in the mansion) and an hour walk, to put into practice what was talked about.

This session was all about: ‘What we see…’ , exploring design elements in Photography whilst reinforcing the manual camera control, explored in the first session.

TTV 2

Well and right here we see a picture of me with one of the participants, captured by yet another … It excites me to see how my methods and parallels help these photography enthusiasts to get to grips with the manual settings, taking back control over the machinery and understanding photography as it is intended…drawing with light and not acting as a machine operator.

Opening up a window into their world , sharing with greater understanding and skill, preserving the methods in photography as they always have been, before the digital era took over. I can’t wait to conclude with these guys in the 3rd session next month (‘After the click…’) Hopefully showing their work in the Mansion in an exhibition; to remain truthful to the whole process from conception to creation and print…

Stay tuned. New dates for another round of workshops are in the diary…

Old school is the new cool … !?!?

I can’t criticize the modern digital medium for it’s accessibility and fast turn around but with recent workshops, students volunteers and endless conversations; fueling and sparking my passion for the very medium of photography, it becomes clearer and clearer to me that not all new is better than the old – or even more to the point: the new is better understood with keeping the old in mind.

All to often does it come up that the digital world and facebook fakery – dilutes the very essence of what Photography once ment – at least to me and other fellow Photographers that have executed the mechanical click and the chemical process that followed.

Oh and all the in-between!?!? … Well we do see pictures everyday, all of us are ‘photographers’ with a camera with in reach- at any given point in time. So I do wonder what – or how can I pinpoint the essence that I see being swept away with a stream of digital files, images and hungry social media feeds!? Whatever happened to the Photograph !?

So I took this exemplar of an SLR – as pictured- (got a few to choose from) and loaded it with a film, quite a few months ago. Well there it all starts : all the consideration, decisions and commitments: executed just by that fact of choosing the ISO, brand and length of the roll of film -gets the very thing going that is crucial in Photography. Choosing , decision and commitment to what will last there after: the CLICK.

Going through this very process memories come only to remind of time passing … hah another crucial notion in Photography… Step one is taken and not all is instant in its revelation and developing meaning: so please stay tuned for some more writing, notion and thoughts shared on this very topic #photography

…and some aspects that seem to be a thing of the past ,worthy of a resurgence … in at least thought & consideration.

 

 

WHITE ON WHITE in the Mansion

Selection 1

I may have been quiet on the Blogging front, lately – but only because I am refining my Photography and Offers, forging a career in the creative Industry.

And most of all settling into the artist community at The Mansion in Beckenham Place Park. Spending time off-line with many more face to face conversations and workshops.

However …here just a little sample of recent work coming out of the Mansion

#studiomansionhouse

and my new favoritism for white on white.
