FRAMINGHAM – Why are some people drawn to black and white photography while others expressly love color imagery?  Why do some photographers have a full portfolio of pastels while others have a collection of rich vibrant color images?  

That will be the discussion at the next Gateway Camera Club meeting when Monica Royal will present The Psychology of Color in Fine Art Photography.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 22 on Zoom from 7 to 9:30 p.m.

There are many reasons why we are drawn to color or lack of color in photography.  

Color is one of the first tools in an artists’ arsenal of good visual design.  Colors are powerful psychological triggers that influence the viewer’s experience; they may suggest a perception of how & what they are seeing and evoke certain specific emotions.

In this program attendees will learn about the psychology of color and how we can use it with authority in the creation of our artwork.  

Royal’s obsession with macro started, like many others, with water on flowers and quickly grew to advanced abstract image design.  She especially enjoys photographing ordinary objects and making them completely unrecognizable.  “It makes for some really fun conversations!” Her macro imagery is widely recognized as unique and innovative.  

She’s won Illustrative Photographer of the Year with Professional Photographers of San Diego for 5 consecutive years.  Her artwork has been published in magazines and was most recently on the cover of Tamron’s National Magazine. Monica’s articles and podcasts have been shared on numerous webpages.  She has taught in several states and continues to produce new artwork that leaves people asking, “what IS that?”

As a social and entertaining artist, as well as an expert in visual design, she has become a sought after speaker & private teacher.  She travels the country speaking and teaching with the sponsorship of Tamron USA and Miller’s Professional Imaging behind her. 

Royal speaks and teaches internationally, and her fine art photography hangs in permanent installations in commercial establishments and in private collections across North America. 

Gateway Camera Club membership consists of beginner, intermediate and advanced photographers.

The Club’s goals are to share ideas, knowledge and insight; to help improve the skills and abilities of our members and to have some fun while enjoying photography.  

The Club is very active and meets most Tuesdays.  Visit website for more information.  

The Club is currently meeting only via zoom.
