Leave your technical manuals behind - this group is for those interested in photography as an art form. Although we recognize the importance of the craft of photographer we feel that the craft is already very well catered for by a plethora of meetups and camera groups in the New England Region.
This group will take a step to the side and cater to those for whom art assumes a far greater weight than craft.
We won't be talking about camera settings, lenses, tripods or equipment, we will be discussing artful photography - delving deeply into why a photograph is artful and what makes it work.
We will explore artisitc vision and how we can develop our own skills of expression.
We will take part in group shoots geared to creating art rather than what Vincent Versace refers to as "Sharp images of fuzzy ideas".
We will meet to critique and appreciate each other's work. We will have salon style discussions over great food and wine as we strive to grow and nurture the artist within each of us.
If you consider yourself first and foremost an artist and photography is just the medium you use to express your vision then this is the group for you.
This group will be run totally on a non-profit basis but to ensure that members are serious in their intent and to discourage the frivolous their will be an annual membership fee of $15 which will go towards maintaining the group, providing accommodation and food and wine for the salon style meetings.
