Wednesday, October 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This regular club meeting is the second featuring one of our members. As always, guests are welcome to attend. We are very excited to have Ted Nodwell as our guest speaker. Ted graduated from the NAIT photography program before spending two decades as a commercial/advertising photographer. Assignments took him from the Arctic to the Everglades, from Long Island to Japan. Since becoming a PDPC member, one of his street photographs was featured on CBC News and another won the Allard Prize Photography Competition to promote human rights.
The topic for Ted’s workshop is: Street Photography – Making it work for you.
In this workshop we look at:
- what is street photography?
- how you can use it to (a) bring fresh eyes and vitality to everyday scenes of your hometown and (b) add interest to your travel and holiday photography.
- our biggest fears around doing street photography and how to overcome them.
- the “best” gear.
- different styles and approaches and what works for you.
The workshop will be illustrated throughout with photographs, so all club members will find this a visually stimulating evening.
A Your Focus outing will be planned for the following week end to give us a chance to practice our new found skills. Images taken during this outing will be reviewed at a subsequent PDPC meeting.
