May 2023 Program Meeting

May 10, 2023 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Cole Thompson on Envisioning / Executing / Critiquing (B&W Images)

Cole Thompson’s “black-and-white fine art photography” seeks to represent his vision of things rather than to simply document a reality. In this program, he presents (1) the distinction between a perception of a scene in color – observed and then captured by the camera – and a B&W vision of the scene (“Eye vs Vision”), (2) the use of six image-editing tools to execute a B&W vision, and (3) the critiquing of images as a way to improve our photography. Throughout he emphasizes his photographic philosophy that vision is the most important tool in his toolbox.

Hopefully, we can practice vision too while photographing for our June competition for monochrome images.

The best way to appreciate Cole’s qualification is through his image portfolios on his website. Also, his inspiring 2021 presentation for FCC on “Why Black and White?” is worth seeing again, and definitely for the first time if you missed it.

NOTE: This will be a Hybrid meeting; we’ll gather at Lone Tree Civic Center AND have members attending via Zoom. Masks are optional at Lone Tree. Zoom details will be emailed to current club members at least one day prior to the meeting.
