May 26 – Making a Photo is Simple
May 26, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Right! It is a simple matter of pointing a camera at something interesting and pressing the shutter button. Voila! “But photographers know better” says Kas Stone. In honing our photographic skills we come to appreciate the rich complexity of craft, artistry and personal vision that goes into every picture. We also learn that what really makes a photograph is how effectively it communicates our innermost feelings, thoughts and stories to a viewer.
An Inside Look: The Making of a Photograph features an integrated approach to the photographic process, from the time we feel the first stirrings of visual inspiration, through the labyrinth of technical and compositional decisions we make when crafting an image, to the finished photograph we present to the world.
Kas will share her image-making workflow, illustrated with stories and before/after examples from her portfolio to show how the personal choices we make in the field, behind the camera, at the computer – and even in our lives! – contribute to the making of a photograph.
Kas Stone is a professional photographer based on the remote eastern edge of Nova Scotia, where she finds plenty of inspiration in the wild coastal scenery and moody weather right outside her door. Her portfolio includes an extensive list of exhibitions, workshops and publications, with several books and feature articles in Canadian and U.K. magazines.
