What defines a Fine Art Photograph

The RA photo club has invited Angelina McCormick, Professional Fine Art Photographer to present a special talk she has entitled:

Sheep in the Meadow – Excess Sheep Removed

Date: February 20, 2014
Time: 7:30 – 9:00 PM
Place: Courtside B, RA Centre

Details:  Well-known Ottawa Photographer, Angelina McCormick, is compelled to do more than just make a statement – the attraction of photography came from her desire to communicate a concept, and to connect with people on multiple levels.

From the initial concept through to the finished work of art, Angelina has a polished style, which is a blend of the old masters’ darkroom techniques, which she transfers to her high end darkroom and digital production.

Intense and even provocative at times, Angelina coexists in her photographs.

In an informative and enlightening presentation, Angelina will explore the conflict and concern over the credibility of photography as a fine art practice today and the effect that digital photography and technology is having on photography’s confidence in the Arts. The distinction between photographs made by artists and everyone else with a camera needs to be addressed through defining what photography is.

Subject to its new fan dangled and rapidly obsolete technologies - what makes a fine art photograph?

Angelina’s presentation will be approximately one hour, followed by 20-30 minutes Q & A.

    It got even more interesting as Angelina felt more comfortable talking. I just wish we could have seen more of her work...
    I am a new member, so I also wish I could have met the ones who attended the event...

      Same here, I am a new member, and do not know other members, it would have been great to meet and greet before/after the event.

    A very honest talk about personal choices, not about technical details (so the geeks left not satisfied).
    Thank you to the guest and to the organizers.

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.
