FRAMINGHAM – The next meeting of the Gateway Camera Club is scheduled for Tuesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held on Zoom, due to the pandemic.
World-renowned photographer, teacher, lecturer, columnist, and author Jack Reznick, who is based in New York City, will lead the discussion, via Zoom.
Our eyes are dynamic devices that are easily fooled and manipulated with what we see and how we see. In other words, seeing is not always believing. Sounds heavy, but it’s actually a lot of fun and entertaining to see just how easily our eyes can be fooled and manipulated.
Why do we care? Because understanding how this all works can help you improve your photos and how they are viewed by others. Discussed will be understanding visual perception issues like the Gestalt theory, where the whole is more than the sum of it’s parts. It’s the why of how we see, such as what makes our eyes follow certain visual principles, what color combinations vibrate and look like kinetic movement, why our eyes move and wander from soft out of focus areas to high frequency sharp areas, and so on.
All these issues help us as photographers in creating photos that excite and stimulate our viewers. Also discussed will be basic design and composition.
Reznick is an honorary Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography and has twice received the IPC (International Photographic Council) Leadership medal at the United Nations.
He was appointed a guest professor at Shandong University of Art and Design and named a Mo-Tse Grand Master Photographer in China. Jack is proud to be one of the original “Canon Explorers of Light” and is also a Photoshop World “Dream Team” instructor, an “Epson Stylus Pro”, an X-Rite “Coloratti”, and a Sandisk “Photo Master.
He also has done Beta testing and consulting with Canon, Mamiya, Microsoft, X-Rite, Leaf digital backs, onOne Software, and Adobe. He currently teaches a graduate course on photography at School of Visual Arts (SVA) in NYC
