May Photography Monthly

appleton public library

Hello!! If you are new to the group, Welcome ( : This group is for anyone interested in photography, regardless of your skill level or what you choose to photograph with. The people in this group are fantastic, welcoming, and willing to share their knowledge. Each month we having a meeting at the Appleton Public Library where we share ideas, talk about photography, and about the monthly challenges. Below is what we'll be talking about this month. I will be in Idaho so Gary will be my taking my place in leading this meeting. Treat him just as amazingly as you all treat me ( : May's discussion will be: "An Urban Love Affair." What would you do photographically if someone hired you and said: "Get me some pictures of your favorite places in your town. I want to create a guide book that will attract tourists. I want to see icons of the community. I want them to be interesting. Provocative. Even a bit controversial. The images can be people, places or things. Most of all, I want them to be different from the status quo. I want them to evoke an emotional response of the viewer such that they will want to come to your town." Henri Cartier-Bresson was a master of this. Some might call it "street photography," but he called it "The Decisive Moment." It is a moment when the subject is composed and framed by connecting the minds eye to the eyes of the heart. We will be discussing these concepts at the May meeting. Challenges: Each month I put forth a photography challenge. The idea being to get you out doing photography and trying new things. The challenge for May is to create the "Urban Love Affair" portfolio. Submit your BEST images (1-3) by posting them to the May Challenge folder. I will bring in some images to get you inspired and excited to create photographs. You will have until the July meeting to photograph this challenge. The last challenge given in March, the Creative Live Challenge: Motion blur, bracketing, sandwich bag portraits, water droplets, holiday light bokeh, or car trails, will viewed at this meeting.

Besides allowing us to get through everyone's images choosing only 1-2 photographs also challenges you to pick your very best work from a session or outing.
