THE HISTORY OF IMAGE MANIPULATION

DIGITAL GROUP - Tues. Jan. 22nd

We think of the photographic image over history as a “truthful” representation and the modern digital image subject to manipulation where we can’t tell what is “real”, however pictures have been altered for a variety of reasons from advertising and propaganda, to political purposes and artistic creations since the dawn of photography.

For our January meeting I’ll be looking at how the photographic image has been manipulated from the beginning.

Looking forward to seeing you for this special presentation... Paul

Saturday, October 20th Visual Story-telling Workshop with Neil Ever Osborne

Visual Story-telling Workshop with Neil Ever Osborne
Saturday, 20 October, 9-5 @Art Gallery of Burlington

Visual storytelling uses a series of photos to share a narrative—about a place, a character, or a cause—that people can connect to in a way that gets them to act. Throughout this workshop with Neil Ever Osborne, you will be introduced to the ingredients of effective visual storytelling. Using case studies from his work with international magazines and environmental organizations that explore the intricate link between people and planet, this workshop will demonstrate the use of visual storytelling to create conversations that matter. Whether you’re an entry-level photographer or avid Instagrammer, a committed enthusiast or a professional communicator, this visual storytelling workshop experience is designed to help you tell more effective stories with your images.
