Set Subject: Shadows

Definition: 

A shadow is the contour created when an object or person blocks rays of light from reaching a surface. The shape of a shadow changes based on its relationship with its light source.  Decide how you aim to use the shadows. Do you want them to subtly accentuate a subject? Or do you wish to highlight their effect on it? Perhaps you want to create a composition entirely focused on them. The choice is yours!

Definition:

The “garden city” movement is a method of urban planning initiated by Sir Ebenezer Howard in 1898 in the United Kingdom.  Garden cities were intended to be planned, self-contained communities surround by “greenbelts”, containing proportionate areas of residences, industry and agriculture.  It is also the phrase used to describe Toowoomba.  Use your imagination to capture the essence of the “Garden City”.

Set Subject: Bokeh

Definition: Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.  Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions.

Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it is often associated with such areas.   However, bokeh is not limited to highlights; blur occurs in all out-of-focus regions of the image.

Set Subject: Pets

A pet is an animal kept primarily for a person’s company, entertainment, or as an act of compassion such as taking in and protecting a hungry stray cat, rather than as a working animal, livestock or laboratory animal.  Two of the most popular pets are dogs and cats.  However, there are a range of other animals which are also kept as pets – rodents, birds, reptiles, fish, frogs and arthropods (insects, spiders and hermit crabs for example).  Ideally for this set subject there should be evidence of human companionship.

Set Subject: Lineal

A less-commonly used word for linear, but not to be confused with Linear Photography only, which is the use of parallel lines to derive perspective. Lineal also means; relating to, or consisting of lines.

Your imagery should be made up of many strong lines, be they parallel or obtuse to each other. The element of lines must be the stronger part of the subject’s make up and be immediately recognised for this aspect. You may also have linear perspective in your image, as long as they are the strongest part of it. Keystoning can play a part in developing these lineal aspects and may even enhance the effect of parallel lines, but not seen as equally parallel. Architectural elements are easily the most thought of, when deriving linear or lineal aspect photography.

The red or orange coating that forms on the surface of iron when exposed to air and moisture. Rusting leads to corrosion and destruction of the object. It is any film or coating on metal caused by oxidation.

Rust photography can include a whole object or part of an object that is rusted or rusting. It can also include macro images of rusted items and surfaces.

Rust can be used to describe things that are reddish-brown in colour

Rust is a disease which affects plants. It is caused by a fungus.

TPS Competition Night @ The Vision Community Church
Jan 14 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Set Subject: Abstract

Abstract photography is the expression of ideas and emotions by using elements such as colours, lines, shapes and textures without attempting to create a realistic picture – any subject, no matter how ordinary, can become abstract depending on the way it is photographed.

More often than not what you leave out is just as important as what you leave in.

There are no rules about composition or framing – it all comes down to you, your view and what you find interesting or beautiful – you are only limited by your vision and ideas.

Ways to get started:

  • Choose strong shapes
  • Get up close
  • Use colour to grab attention
  • Seek out texture
  • Look for repeating patterns
  • Use lines and curves
  • Photograph reflections
  • Shoot through another object
  • Capture shadow
  • Blur your images

TPS Skills Night Feb 25 – Graham Harris Photographer’s Retrospective @ De Molay House
Feb 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Graham Harris CF FAPS AFIAP GPU CR-2 QPSA PSQA will present a retrospective on his photographic journey on the 25th February 2020.

Graham has been photographing since his early years growing up on various properties throughout New South Wales.  He continued this passion in his working life with the Department of Primary Industries in Queensland and with a young family at Inglewood, Monto and Biloela.

In 2004 he joined the Toowoomba Photographic Society and stared entering our local aggregate competition.  In 2007 he entered his first National Photographic competition and 2009 started entering International Salons, gaining some success with acceptances which has enabled him to obtain photographic honours with the following organisations:

  • Australian Photographic Society (APS)
  • Federation Internationale de l’Art Photographique (FIAP)
  • Global Photographic Union (GPU)
  • Photographic Society of America (PSA)

In his presentation Graham will reflect on his photographic journey and provide an overview of his experience with entering photos into competition.  He will show examples of his successful images, and also those that have not been as successful in gaining acceptances.  He will demonstrate the post-processing used to make the most of the images he captures and enters into competition.

A Self-portrait is a representation of an artist photographed by the artist.  The self-portrait is more than a selfie or snapshot because it is about capturing the essence of the artist’s identity and attitude and personality.

The self-portrait can be considered as an act of introspection, self-exploration or a visual diary.

Consideration needs to be given to background, dress and position, angle and can include several approaches – environmental, constructionist, candid and creative.

An antique has value because of its aesthetic or historical significance, and its age, beauty, and rarity. Something may be very old, but uninteresting or very common, and the key is to find something that you can photograph well.

How old is antique, there is the saying, “Grandmothers are antique little girls.” But we who are in that age of life may not like being called elderly, let alone antique. However, what about some genuinely elderly people approaching the age of antique (100 years) with their beautiful wrinkles?

Set Subject: Dominant Colour

The key colour is the main colour in an image. Often, the key colour in an image is that which is the most dominant. Allowing one colour to dominate can lead to a powerful image. This is stronger when a primary colour (redblue or yellow) is the dominant colour.

The colour can be but does not have to be 100% of the image.  Images can be created in natural light, filtered studio light, a filter on the lens or manipulated in Photoshop.  These can also be called monochromatic.
