Our next online Sackville Photography Club meeting is this Wednesday, January 20th.
Wow, we are in the second half of January already. We are a month past the Winter Solstice and the days are getting noticeably longer again, a welcome daily sight for sure. Also, it’s time to pour yourself a beverage, fill a plate with snacks, pull up a chair and get comfortable and we will do our best to bring you a full, entertaining and informative meeting.
We are thrilled to welcome, from Kingston, Ontario, Richard Martin as Guest Speaker at our upcoming meeting. Richard’s presentation “VISUAL RHYTHM” will take us on a journey of lines and curves. The shape of a line and its orientation or direction within the picture space evokes certain emotional responses among viewers. This presentation will examine the visual language of lines from straight to the sensuous qualities of curved lines. Also, the visual impact that length, position and direction can have on the expressive possibilities established in the final image.
A long-time presenter and magazine contributor, Richard pursues photography as a medium of visual expression. He is best known for his unique vision with a personal style characterized by a strong sense of composition, colour and the use of light. His work combines an architectural love of geometry, pattern and texture with a painter’s sensitivity to colour, light and composition. www.richardmartinphoto.com
In the second half of the meeting Mariette McDonald will share how to capture “Frozen Soap Bubbles” as we will soon be hitting the “coldest” part of winter and the right temperatures for creating these beauties.
You’ve now had a few weeks to start thinking about what your 2021 goals might be but need some help in articulating them and putting them into practice. Kim Ottenbrite will show you how to be successful with planning for and executing those goals with her presentation “Your Road Map to Success – Setting Goals as a Photographer”.
Ian Proctor will provide an update on Field Trips, Kevin Hall will update the Mentoring program and Chris Briand will take us through Club Business.
As a reminder, images for the January Showcase: “People” will be due Saturday, January 30th to firstname.lastname@example.org .
We look forward to you joining us online this Wednesday, January 20th at 7pm from the comfort of your home. You don’t want to miss this!!!! The Zoom meeting invite will be posted as an EVENT in the Members Facebook group.
