Artistic

Meeting link: https://meet2.raphotoclub.ca/b/adm-spv-woy-iac

We are using the CAPA definition of Artistic photography so that winning images can be entered as Club entries in the respective CAPA competition.

Artistic photography is created in accordance with the creative vision of the artist as a photographer, using photography as a medium to bring something to life that arises from the artist’s mind. The image should go beyond the ‘literal representation’ of a scene or subject.  A simple conversion of a colour image to a monochrome would not necessarily result in an artistic image. The photographer will use subjects, elements and techniques as a vehicle in the process of conveying their feelings and vision to reveal an original, creative and individual expression.

Definition

CAPA further defines artistic as “an image produced with the intention to portray a creative vision based primarily on an aesthetic and emotional thrust.”

For the purpose of the competition, images should fit into one of the following four themes:

Abstract – does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of tangible objects or people, where colour and form make up the subject of the images.  Examples include – double exposure blurred images, intentional camera movement, distorted image, lines & shapes, panned image and smoke/fire created image.

Altered Reality – using photographic elements to create a realistic or unrealistic fictional image. Ideally, the intention is to create an image that conveys a message or tells a story.

Creative – image is one that was specifically created using props or amplification of elements not normally viewed by the human eye such as: dramatically lit subject (portraits, still life or landscape), long-exposures, water & oil and high-speed water drops. It also includes light painting and low-key image created in camera or post processing.

Smartphone/tablet – image(s) captured on a smartphone/tablet and have significant ‘artistic’ changes to the image using one or more mobile device applications or other post processing application.  External lens attached to a smartphone or tablet are permitted.

Monochrome

Meeting link: https://meet2.raphotoclub.ca/b/adm-spv-woy-iac

We are using the CAPA definition of Monochrome so that winning images can be entered as Club entries in the respective CAPA competition.

For this competition, CAPA is using the definition of Monochrome as defined by the Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique’s (FIAP) and is as follows:

A black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey. A black and white work toned entirely in a single colour will remain a monochrome work able to stand in the black and white category. On the other hand a black and white work modified by a partial toning or by the addition of one colour becomes a colour work (polychrome) to stand in the colour category.

Definition

Given the above definition CAPA considers a sepia image to be a monochrome image. A ‘duo-toned’ image is not considered a monochrome image for the purposes of the competition.

CAPA has described the following themes in this competition, which effectively means there are no restrictions regarding subject matter:

Portrait (will primarily contain the likeness of a person(s) in which the facial expression is predominant but can be extended to include the entire body and the background)

Landscape (can include people, buildings, etc…)

Man-made Structures/Objects (includes cityscapes, buildings, transportation, still life, table top photography, etc…)

Flowers/Plants (wild or cultivated – ‘hand-of-man- is permitted)

Animals/Birds/Insects (wild or domesticated – ‘hand-of-man’ is permitted)

Hand-of-man is permitted in all themes. Infrared images are permitted in this competition.

Mathēmatica with Ann Piché

Meeting link: https://meet2.raphotoclub.ca/b/adm-spv-woy-iac

Ann Piché hates math but she can’t escape it. Math is patterns, rhythms, and symmetry. Both natural and man-made. It is an exploration of the real and the abstract. But what if understanding math is not necessary to see math? Mathēmatica is a photographic study that looks at the linkages between math and art. The audience is asked to look past incomprehensible strings of formulas and see what math creates. Math is re-imagined in a formula that we can all relate to – a photograph.
