THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY
This presentation talks about contemporary artists who use photography, and photographers who are artists. This comes with a basic discussion on understanding art photography and an overview of the broad range of styles and approaches taken by art photographers, with many examples. The talk gives an insight into alternative and thought-provoking imagery which can inform and stimulate ideas for our own work.
LIGHTING FOR STILL LIFE Still Life Workshop
The idea of the workshop is to demonstrate how to begin lighting a portrait or a simple still life, and how to use simple lighting at home or on location to achieve stylish and subtle effects. Andrew's experience has shown him that amateur photographers are not always sure where to begin when lighting with artificial sources. Once the basis has been established a whole range of permutations can ensue.
Andrew uses professional lighting to demonstrate basic techniques, and then show how simple control and shaping of lighting at home or on location can achieve similar effects.
Biography: Trained as Graphic designer and photographer, advertising and commercial work took up a large part of Andrew's professional career, and full time as a university lecturer delivering BA courses has given him the opportunity to engage in more of the documentary, portraiture and aesthetic projects which he finds the most gratifying. Currently he runs a photography club, gives talks and workshops, and pursues documentary projects and travel.
