Our guest speaker tonight is our very own member, Anthony Schatzky, with his presentation “Seeing Things Differently – Abstracts & Graphic Photography”.
Abstract/graphic photography is a genre of photography that is not spoken about a lot in camera clubs. However, this category of photography has a rich history within the world of the photographic arts. It is an area of photography which is hard to define, to interpret and difficult to judge.
Seeing Things Differently aims to provide camera club members with a better appreciation for and understanding of abstract and graphic photography.
The topics covered in this presentation include:
1. Defining Abstract Photography
2. Why make Abstract Photographs?
3. Examples of Abstract Photography Made in the 1900’s
4. Types of Abstract Photography
5. Contemporary Abstract Photographers
6. My Abstract Images
7. Tips for Making Abstract Images
