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

Posing: Techniques that Flatter Your Subject
“One-Two-Three, Cheese!!!” Successful photographs of human subjects not only require a great expression but also the suitable arrangement of rest of the body. What happens with the placement of hands, arms, hips and legs is crucial. This studio session will explore posing techniques that flatter the human form. We’ll have a model on hand for a demonstration of different poses and for participants to photograph, so don’t forget your cameras! Now about getting that great expression…
Because our previous session was ruined by the weather, on January 31 I will again try to host a discussion on the search for the perfect camera bag!If you have found it please bring it in to share with other members. If you are still looking (like I am) we will discuss what does and does not work for us photographers. See you there. Be sure to bring your camera bags and cases. - John Larsen
