Our first night of the year kicked off with a very large bang, with an exceptional presentation by Jim Crew on the Evaluation of Images, with some additional details and outline of our major project for the year - the Portfolio.
Lane Cove Creative Photography has, for several years led the way forward for enthusiastic amateur photographers. Our emphasis on evaluation and discussion of images is critical for advancing our understanding of the communication inherent in all images.
Having a clear understanding of what a photograph is communicating helps us to understand what the photographer is trying to say with their image. As photographers we have strategies available to assist us with our image making, so that our resolved image becomes an effective statement.
Part of the process of evaluating an image is understanding the fundamental difference between the "Subject" (what the is is about) and the "Subject Matter", or "Content" of the image - the elements used by the photographer to illustrate the subject. Comprehensive notes on the process can be found on the support page, as well as detailed guidelines to help members get to work on their portfolio project for 2018
