Nov 23 – The Visual Language of Line

November 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Photographer Richard Martin has the honour of being the first guest speaker for the CAPA Pacific Zone’s Series of Four.  In this Zoom presentation he will examine the visual language of lines from straight to the sensuous qualities of curved lines. The shape of a line and its orientation or direction within the photo evokes certain emotional responses among viewers. We will explore the impact that length, position and direction can have on the expressive possibilities established in the final image.

A well-designed photograph, is the best possible visual expression of the essence of ‘something’, whether it is representational or simply to convey a particular message or theme. The presentation will highlight lines, one of the building blocks of design with examples to help develop your eye and improve your ability to combine various graphic elements into your photographs.
