Wednesday, October 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This will be a regular club meeting and as always guests are more than welcome.
We are very excited to have Mark Sippola as our guest speaker this evening. Mark is a Canadian and International award winning black and white photographer based in Mission, British Columbia. His work is primarily focussed on landscape and seascape imagery. To quote Mark: “I don’t consider colour blindness to be a deficit. On the contrary, it allows me to see the world in a way that may not be apparent to the normally sighted person. In my world, the colour of a scene is almost meaningless, and instead I see the world for its contrast, light and shapes. This gives me a unique perspective that forces me to work within my so called, limitations, and create images that reflect my own personal view of the world.”
Mark’s presentation is called: Finding Your Vision By Thoroughly Working the Scene
The concept will be: When you arrive at a location, something draws you in and makes you take out your camera. But what is it about that location that actually appeals to you? How many times have you made images at a location that just didn’t live up to your expectations? How do you take that incredible image in your imagination and make it a reality? In this presentation, Mark will discuss his process for working the scene and considering it from different perspectives to allow his vision to become a reality.
