Digital Night – Narrative Portraiture, Domestic Animals, …

November 18

Well, we’re in a modified quarantine here in the Lower Mainland so I’d like to make a suggestion. Why not peruse those tens, hundreds or possibly thousands of pictures you’ve taken and pick a few to share with the group this upcoming Wednesday. Lots of topics to choose from, let’s explore and share.

The first of our themes reflects our recent workshop theme—narrative portraiture. Adolfo Rozenfeld talked about creating images that tell stories about his subjects in an engaging and emotional way.
Our second theme this month focuses on domestic animals. These animals while sometimes are standing still, they can be quite frisky at others and be a challenge to photograph.
Our third theme hopefully challenges you at home, as it’s still life. We have seen some amazing images taken with just a few household items such as ribbons, eggs, forks, fruits and flowers. But, couldn’t the image be with nuts and bolts? Let your imagination go.
Speaking of imagination there is a human tendency for incorrect perception, called pareidolia. This is when you see shapes in clouds or faces in inanimate objects. A common example is the ‘man in the moon’. I’d like to challenge you to present your image where you see a shape, face or object and see if others see the same thing.
The next category of Remembrance is one of importance but as the in-person celebrations didn’t happen this year, if you have images from past years you’d like to share, please do.
Lastly there is the open category for any image that doesn’t fit within this month’s themes. We love to see you images, so send them in!Categories are: NP (Narrative Portraiture), DA (domestic animals), SL (still life), Pare (Pareidolia), Remembrance, and Open.

Note: Each member can submit up to 3 images for each of the 6 regular categories.

Members can also send short slideshows or videos.

Remember, for the best display quality, images should be resized to a maximum width of 1920 pixels and a maximum height of 1080 pixels. This may not be possible with cell/tablet images so please send us the largest image possible, up to the limits indicated above.
