Free Thinking Lunch w/ Susan Locke. Photography From Two Perspectives. (Tuesday, 3/5)

Tuesday March 5, 12:45 – 2 pm, VC 8-150.
Photography From Two Perspectives

This will be the fourth in a series of photography discussions for members of the Honors Program community. We will have an opportunity to share examples of our work with each other and to explore the art and techniques of photography.

The topic will be “photography from two perspectives.” There is always more than one way to represent and interpret a photographic subject. We can represent the whole scene or some finer detail in it. We can approach the subject from more than one perspective or more than one distance. We can catch the image under more than one type of light. We can take photos that evoke contrasting moods or evoke different values.

Participants are asked to submit two digital photos that represent this theme. You can use one of the points of comparison I describe above or interpret “two perspectives” in any other way that is meaningful to you.

Points to keep in mind:

•You don’t have to be a master photographer. This is an opportunity to benefit from each other’s point of view. This is a learning opportunity, not a photo competition

•SLR, point-and-shoot, and cell phone photographers are all welcome

•While you are encouraged to submit two photos that represent the theme of “two perspectives,” you may submit any two photos of your choosing.

•Those of you who don’t take photos, but are interested in the medium, are welcome to attend as well

•All members of the honors community – students, faculty, and staff – are welcome to participate.

If you plan to participate, please do let me know at your earliest convenience.
Submit two photos to me via email no later than Friday, March 1st []. Submit digital images in jpeg format, ideally no more than 100 megapixels, size 4×6 to 5×7. Give each of your images a suitable title. Please use your Baruch email address when you correspond with me.

If you only work with film and have print images, please let me know that you plan to bring those images with you for display with the overhead projection.

I hope to see you.
