January Meeting, Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 7:00 PM

Emotion in Photography

We will have a short discussion about portraying emotion in photographic images. Members will then have an opportunity to share and discuss their own image that conveys mood and emotion.

This woman looks like she is in such despair. As it turns out, the title of this image is “Hope” (by George Frederic Watts). Instead of her bending her head in defeat, because of her broken instrument, she is bending close to it, so she care still hear it while she continues to play with one string. Regardless of the emotion the artist was shooting for, it is definitely there.

Meeting Preparation Assignment

By conveying a mood in your image, it will have a stronger and lasting impact with the viewer. Yet, it is not as easy as following camera setting instructions or composition rules. So your assignment is to go out and practice capturing images with emotion and feeling over the next couple of months. Keep in mind that landscapes can convey feeling just as portraits do. In the meantime, we will be providing examples and tips on how to do that.

Once you have your best image from this assignment, we want you to submit it to be shown during our January meeting. And if you are willing, we would like you to give a short discussion about your image and the emotion you are trying to portray. For those who are familiar with the “Learning from the Masters” programs, this presentation format will be similar to that.

December 30th is the tentative due date for your image. Stay tuned for additional information.
