Advanced Colour Workshop (7:30 PM EDT)
The Power of Colour Grading to Create Emotion in Film, Art and Photography Please register for the workshop then Fred can send you notes. Learn how to bring out emotion in your photography using colour concepts from the masters. The presentation will explore colour harmonies in 5 images from film, art and photography:     • monochromatic     • complimentary (also double-split complimentary)     • analogous     • analogous with complimentary (also split complimentary)     • triadic colours equally spaced on the colour wheel We’ll examine the traditional colour wheel based on the primary colours of red, yellow and blue. We also use the HSL (hue, saturation, luminance) model. In addition to the creative/artistic material we will also look at how to analyze colour in your images using Adobe tools as well as looking at some colour grading techniques. The basics of colour correction (white balance, exposure, contrast, and saturation) will be touched on as well. Participation in Roy Sletcher’s Elementary Colour Workshop is helpful but not necessary. Participants are invited to send Fred Brown  up to three colour images for a “show and tell” discussion.
Street Photography with Monique Campbell (7:30 AM EDT)
Building Confidence to Shoot Street Photography Monique Campbell chooses to chase the light that shines through the cracks illuminating the world through her soulful images she captures mindfully. Her personal story lies within each image but it is not hers alone allowing others to identify with their own narratives. In part it is healing, a means of compensation for the shadows in her mind as she chases the light. Finding interest by observing the mundane, the ordinary and the moments most people take for granted, she excels in producing captivating photographs that linger in the minds of viewers.  As a result of a harsh childhood, a mother who was affected by World War 2 in Belgium and experiences chasing fire trucks and ambulances as a photojournalist, she developed an extraordinary sensitivity to her surroundings, situations and emotions of others. In a flash of perception she identifies a moment and clicks the shutter already knowing the end result will demonstrate her empathy and intimacy.  Much of her work is produced in black and white inspired by her mentor, the late photojournalist, Ted Grant who says, “When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls.” Street photographers André Kertész, Henri Cartier-Bresson have long interested her but it is Vivian Maier who has ultimately influenced her to finding serendipitous moments. Looking back at her childhood photographs, Monique realized that she had an eye for Maier's style before knowing it formally.  A graduate of the Western Pacific Academy of Photography, Monique Campbell's photojournalism has been recognized by the Canadian Press runner up photo of the year, Thomson Newspaper chain Photo of the Year and the Ted Grant Photojournalism Award for Excellence.  Monique Campbell, a street photographer from Hamilton will be sharing images of her work and talking about her process. Monique's photographs have
Post-Processing Workshop No. 4 (7:00 PM EDT)
The event will be held on April 19th, 2021 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Hey members, This is our fourth post-processing workshop, focused on processing your photos and seeing possibilities within an image. It doesn't matter what software you use for processing, as they all have pretty much the same features. It doesn't matter your skill-level as this is a collaborative learning environment. This series is highly participative (i.e. you have to participate actively and do the homework) and the meetings kept to an intimate scale. If there is more interest, we will split the group up to maintain the small group setting. So here is how it is going to work: ·each participant sends the organizer (Jean-François Riel) a couple of un-processed photos with potential for various interpretations, about 1 month before the meeting; ·a selection of those are sent to the participants - they will be selected on the basis their potential for varied interpretations by participants; ·the participants interpret these images through processing them in their own way and send them back to the organizer (guess who) 1 week before the meeting, so that they are turned into a presentation that will be discussed in depth during the workshop; ·the workshop is held where we discuss each participant's artistic interpretations of images; ·the number of images to be sent and processed will depend on the number of participants. This is the homework that must be completed otherwise there is no workshop; ·small group setting - if there is more interest, we will split the group up to maintain the numbers and need to have one lead per group; ·one lead per group to organize meetings, prepare presentations, organize and run meetings; ·as this is a workshop format, everyone must be ready to participate; this includes sending and editing photos, and presenting their work for example and why/how they processed the photos the way they did; ·meetings to be held approximately every month to month

Essays & Portfolios # 2 (9:00 PM EDT)
Essays & Portfolios (member showing of their own images) By popular demand, we are going to have another Essays & Portfolios This is a friendly, non-competition event. The photographers of the entries will remain anonymous until the end of the event. There will be no introductions, talk through or other identifying information by the author or anyone else. We will run Essays #1 and #2 together. At the end we will have a Q&A session and story telling from the photographer.  Photographers, please stay behind. The goal of this friendly competition shall be fun and participation, rather than trophies, aggregate points etc. There shall be a single class of entry. Photo essays are to relate a cohesive story line or theme through the use of up to a maximum of eight (8) images. Members may enter as many as two (2) essays. If, however, two (2) are entered, they should be unrelated. Portfolios (a maximum of one (1) per member) are to be strictly limited to a maximum of fifteen (15) images. They should present a cross-section of the member's best work, i.e., as one might prepare to impress a prospective buyer. The judges for this competition shall be those members in attendance who have not entered images. Since there will not be an accumulation of aggregate scores or Master Class points for these images, the photographer is welcome to submit photographs from previous print or slide competitions or those they plan on entering in future print or slide competitions. Remember, all winning photographs from this event will not be included in the year-end judging unless they win in the regular print or slide competitions.
