Kick Off 2019

Our first club night of 2019 will kick off with three mini presentations.

Almitra will introduce our program for the year. The committee has listened to members’ feedback and implemented a number of small changes that we hope will encourage individuals to take their photography to the next level.

This will be followed by a presentation on ‘What is a portfolio?’ by our club expert, Jim Crew.

Finally, John Chapman will tell us how he plans to mentor the Portfolio process and what he would like everyone to bring to the first meeting at his house.

Invisible by Liz Loh Taylor

Our first outing of 2019 will see us visit an exhibition by Liz Loh Taylor, a remarkable woman whose work presents a documentary of her experiences through remote locations of Africa, Pakistan and Peru. The black and white images are in the Leica store on level 2 in the Queen Victoria Building.

This will be followed by a walk down to Darling Harbour’s Chinese Garden of Friendship, escaping the hustle and bustle of the city to a serene, secluded garden. Full details will be emailed to members prior to the outing.

Evaluation Night | No.1 - With a Twist

In 2019 we will have five Evaluation nights however, based on members’ feedback, two will be run slightly differently.

We ask that you bring one image - that’s right, just one image - in either print or projected format for comment and discussion.

Each member will receive a number from 1 to 6 and will be asked to sit with fellow members with the same number. Each group will then be given a card with words like composition, storytelling, and aesthetics. Your facilitator Gavin Perry will select an image then throw to each group to comment on the image based on the words on their card.

Mike Sea first introduced this idea to the club in 2018 during an Evaluation Night.

Monochrome Styles by Members of LCCP

Following on from a previous Presentation night by Peter Hill, and to assist in an upcoming Challenge, members of LCCP, including Lucie Loane and Steve Mullarkey, will be sharing with us the various Monochrome styles.

The term monochrome is usually taken to mean black and white or, more likely, grayscale, but may also be used to refer to other combinations containing only tones of a single colour, such as green-and-white or green-and-red. It may also refer to sepia displaying tones from light tan to dark brown or cyanotype images.

Monochrome Challenge

When you create a monochrome photograph, you create something that is abstract and strikingly real at the same time. Monochrome photography is strange that way. It is perhaps this abstractness that makes monochrome images so intriguing and timeless.

Following the Presentation by Peter Hill earlier in the year and the subsequent outing we now give you the chance to share three images with fellow members. Peter Hill will return to facilitate the Challenge.
