Intentional Photography

Images that we choose to render, develop and publish often result from the dialogue we establish with our surroundings. We see and we respond, and the story tells itself to us. We can also choose to reverse this process and begin with a story we’d like to tell and then create with intention.

This month we will look at what we can do when we use the camera as a way to tell a story. Graphic-design teacher and photographer Mark Illingworth will share images and the stories behind them in his series “Extraordinary Among the Ordinary.” These beautiful black-and-white portraits are of ordinary people who have behaved, made choices, and had experiences that are unique.

You are invited to join the presentation. Share photographs that resulted from a decision to tell a story rather than a response to what was already there. Send two or three examples (lo-res) of your intentional photography to [masked] by Thursday, February 7th so that they can be discussed after Mark’s presentation. Your images will be used to create and publish a Web Gallery and/or a Slideshow using Lightroom. The result will be posted on our meetup site.

P.S. We will have door prizes & refreshments will be on hand!

    Mark's presentation was intriguing and impressive. His commentary helped me to see and understand so much more than I would have been able to do on my own.

    I also enjoyed Mark's presentation very much. He very nicely drove home that there is more to the photograph than just the visual image we see before us. Each photograph has a story to tell, that of the photographer and that of the viewer.

    We saw plenty of excellent photographs last night! It's always inspiring to see the creativity and the imagination of other photographers. Great work!

    Sorry, I will not be attending tonight due to predicted icy roads and poor visibility. I'm disappointed but I hope to catch it next time if you have a rerun. Thanks.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
