Alexia Sinclair + Phoneography

Foto fun in Melbourne...

We kick off with a viewing of Alexia Sinclair's extraordinary works that sell for thousands of dollars. Alexia Sinclair is an award winning Australian Fine Art photographer and digital artist. Her distinct style is easily recognisable and highly original. Using a visual narrative to seduce her audience with each photographic feast, Sinclair’s art is dark and seductive, baroque and symbolic. Her multilayered photographs subtly present contemporary notions of fashion and beauty through innovative digital media, whilst restoring antique notions of classicism, elegance and luxury. Absolutely unmissable.

Then {drumroll} the keenly-awaited return of phoneography. We had such fun in May doing it that it was time to bring it back on the table. Bring your iPhone/Smart phones and let's play with apps. The Collingwood/Fitzroy area is a fascinating, textured area of residences, parks, warehouses, shops, pubs, churches, built up with years and years of history, layer upon layer. I just love shooting this type of environment with my iPhone apps. Bring a fully charged camera and apps already downloaded.  For ideas check out this post on my website.

Closing drinks/dinner venue? Shall we play it by ear and see where the streets of Fitzroy lead us? Hopefully somewhere dark, dingy and with a pool table lurking in the shadows somewhere.....

    hi guys the weather is crap now, but after the gallery it might be different. i will meet you at the gallery, and we can have a team meeting about phoneography depending on weather. If no, then we can pull up a pew together cheers

      Looking out the window it's definitely a day for bringing the weather sealed SLR, putting on a weather sealed lens and not having to worry about rain drops on the touch screen confusing the phone.

    I am going to have to skip out too. Car is playing up and I don't want to do the bus and train thing on grand final day by myself. Have a great time.

      be great to see ya'all! I'll have my pentax film camera with me so i'll hopefully get this final project done for school ... (and hopefully someone will be there to help me out with the damn thing) :)

      September 28, 2013

  • Beth J.

    Hi everyone - after the gallery we'll wander through the back streets north-bound and then hook over to The Standard Hotel at 293 Fitzroy Street Fitzroy when we're done. I'll keep the comments thread updated on an approximate arrival time at the pub if you want to join us there. Fingers crossed it's not all too crazy with the football final on too. If it is nuts then I'll post here if we move to another venue. Please be on time today so we can head off as a group as I'll be using my phone for picture taking! weeeee!!!

  • Beth J.

    Hi everyone as always please keep your RSVP up to date and be on time so we can move as a group. I figure we will follow our noses photo wise but any ideas for meeting point at the end for beers etc?

    September 27, 2013

    I would love to do this workshop but have just committed to a grand final 'thing'. Please let me know when your nexyt one is planned as it sounds great fun

    Hi I did some photography in the past and want to start out again

    September 26, 2013

  • Nils V.

    Igor, you won't be the only one using a normal camera instead of a phone. After using only my phone camera for a while, and then finding myself in Sydney with a flat battery by 4 pm, no phone, no GPS, no camera, I'm now enjoying not having to primarily use my phone for photography.

      thanks beth ... i'll do that!

      Hawks are in the Grand Final. I think I might have to pass on this Meetup and watch the match instead.

    Cannot make it for this meetup, but have great time with smartphone photography. Cheers :-)

    Beth do you teach Nikon and Canon SLR's or just the one ... looking forward to Sunday :)

    August 28, 2013

    • Beth J.

      Hi Marlene I teach you how to use your dSLR manual camera, it doesn't matter which brand. I recommend bringing your camera's manual if you have it just in case I can't work out a button for you. But 95% of the time the book is just our back pocket backup.

    Hi, I'm one of probably very few people in this meetup that does not have a smartphone (or rather a phone with a good camera). Is a normal camera OK for this outing?

    1 · August 19, 2013

    • Beth J.

      Hi Igor the idea is to play with smart phones and apps. your call...

      August 28, 2013

    Would love to do this workshop. Away for weekend. Until next time.
