The June program is presented by Award Photographer, Judy Reinford, "The Art of Creating an Idea for Print Competition".
Instructor Judy Reinford will cover how to start the creative process to come up with ideas with a fun interactive exercise that people can take home and use on friends and family to get those creative juices flowing! How to find source images and start putting them all together into a story that will turn into your final work of art. Things discussed will be perspective, lighting, angle shot, and size of each image, how these play a key role in fitting together for the final piece, plus presentation, and naming. Longer versions of this seminar include compositing, creating directional light, and painting in Photoshop.
The Bay Professional Photographers Association (BPPA) provides an opportunity for photographers to come together to exchange ideas and information and encourage each other to become better at their craft. The association allows photographers to improve their skills by presenting photographic programs and holding print competitions. The association also provides the benefit of networking with other photographers for business and social interaction.
To advance photography in all its branches, both as an art and as a profession; to create, foster, promote and maintain cordial relations, cooperation and the interchange of thoughts and opinions freely among its members.
