Photography by Christopher Fay

 

 

Photographer Christopher Fay believes recognizing beautiful ART around you constantly is a gift and skill that comes from viewing the world through the Artist’s Eye. The trick is to develop the patience and imagination to recognize it.  From there, each image calls for its own composition.  With the onset of digital photography and many digital photography advancements, new worlds have opened a new age of creating high-quality photographic artwork.  By using various techniques and tools to enhance regular photographs, spectacular results can be achieved in the finished image.

 

Photography by Hope Kahn

 

 

Photographer Hope Kahn uses many different photographic means to capture an image; such as digital cameras, plastic cameras and pinhole cameras. She then applies, a variety of finishing techniques.  Some of the techniques used are historical processes such as Photo Gravure, Cyanotype as well as the use of paper negatives. The common thread in her art is the blending of the realistic into the interpretative – producing a poetic quality to her photographs. Her clients have often called her work “mysterious and otherworldly.”  

 

 

 

Photography by Shalini Nopany

 

 

Photographer Shalini Nopany is known for both black and white and color images of people and places. Her photographs, which radiate with a woman’s sensibility, freeze a moment in time that captures emotions and actions. Her themes have included motion, emotion, and people’s activities in different settings.

 


Curator Bruce Helander

Cyanotype by Louise Noakes

 

 

About the workshop:

 

The cyanotype process, also known as the blueprint process, was one of the early methods used to make photographic images. It was invented in 1842 by astronomer John Herschel.  It’s a great process for the beginners that want to learn about an easy and rewarding alternative process. We will start by learning how to make a photograms onto sensitized paper in the sun. This will teach you the basic process, mixing the chemicals, coating your paper, exposures, developing your print. We will then learn how to make a negative from one of your photographs. The second day we will make a 24”x30” print onto handmade paper. Students will be amazed at the work they create in this workshop.

About the workshop:

Using the scanner as a camera, we will scan 3D objects such as flowers, shells, fruits, vegetables, toys, and any number of found objects. The flat bed scanner technique is a challenge as it is your studio, your camera, your light source, all in one. The scanner can generate extremely high resolution images capturing incredible detail.

“Yellow Tulip” by Joanne Urban

You will learn the unique qualities of making photographic still life images utilizing the flat-bed scanner. You will learn how to use the scanner software, arrange your elements, proper exposure and proper file sizing. Using the same enhancements you would use with images from your digital cameras, the scanned image will be imported into Photoshop (all skill levels welcome) for final editing and output. I will assist you with post-processing techniques.

 

 

 

Some materials for scanning will be provided. You will go home with an 8×10 photographic image, or two, of your still life creation. Please bring in any objects you would like to try and scan, be willing to share, and let your imagination run wild.  Must bring a lap top with Photoshop installed (any version) and a flash drive.
