Not often do we have a Canadian Press photographer as speaker...an evening not to be missed!
Adrien Duey is a Canadian image maker and winner of many national and international awards and has published over 100 magazines and twice nominated for Juno awards. He teachers at the School pf Photographic Arts ( SPAO) and gives private lighting and production workshops in English and French. .
Adrien will give a two part presentation on Light Blending Techniques & Still Life Lighting
Part 1: Blending Ambient and Flash on location
With examples, and a live demonstration, Adrien will explore how independently controlling ambient light and flash can result in an image with real creative flair.
Part 2: Still Life - the making of his Foundry Exposition
Adrien recently had a very successful photo exposition at Exposure Gallery of foundry objects and molds. In this part, Adrien will lead us on a step-by-step journey into the making of the final exhibit images for the exhibition. In particular he will show us how, by combining the two hardest sources in his lighting tool box, he was able to create a pastel-like finish in his Foundry images.
This is an opportunity to meet the new members to the club who will be showing some of their photographs.

Though our eye sees in three dimension, by their nature, photographs are only two dimensional. For this assignment, the photographer much use perspective and compositional elements to impart a sense of scale to the viewer.
Like abstract art, Abstract photography concentrates on shape, form, colour, pattern and texture. The viewer is often unable to see the whole object. The focus is often only a small part of it. Viewers of an abstract shot may only know the essence of the abstraction or understand it by what is implied. Normally the object or image will not be a literal view of the subject.
The abstract must be man-made.
Your image must be about doors.
Figurative or literal intepretations permitted.

Pet and animal portraits are excluded.
There are no restrictions on location (indoors or outdoors) nor on lighting (ambient or artificial) however both must be CONSIDERED and CONTROLLED.
