About the event

Exploration #24 “Experiments in Portraiture”

Monday January 16th:  7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Deadline: midnight January 14th

At this time of year, most of us will spend some time with family and friends. It’s an opportunity to take simple head and shoulder images against a black or white background.  These can be an opportunity to experiment with alternative ways to alter, revise, embellish, contextualize, re-visualize, and create new ways to interpret the people we know.

Of course, incorporating a texture is one technique you can use, but you can also find many other interesting ways to experiment with this challenge. It doesn’t have to complicated!  Interesting photographs are often simple to create - but need to be well thought out ahead of time.

Reflections in a smashed mirror, photographs torn apart and reassembled, colours manipulated, retouched, selected filters, painted faces or makeup, unusual lighting, different lens choices or camera angles, stylistic interpretations, the list can be almost endless. It’s about using imagination and playing with ideas…..time to research for inspiration!
