In the Eye of the Beholder
Tips & Techniques for Making Stunning Portraits
Join Tracey Rice for an evening on portraits. Tracey will share how she creates stunning portraits through collaboration with her subjects, pre-shoot visualization, making choices about lighting, backgrounds, locations, and angles, establishing rapport, capturing the moment, and post-processing for impact. Whether you’re a novice or a pro, come and be inspired to try some new portrait techniques this summer!
Post Cards from Peachtree Corners
In bygone days visitors to a far away city would find post cards at news stands to drop a line to friends and family back home and show the place they were visiting. News stands and post cards have pretty much gone the way of Kodachrome. Nowadays everybody carries a smartphone and takes a quick shot to post for their friends. What you can still buy, and that is really what inspired this contest, are books with old photos giving a delightful historical records of places.
Our city of Peachtree Corners is new and forward looking. Let’s go out and shoot views around our town that tell about the place we call home. Photos that show places, buildings, streets, anything that shows glimpses of Peachtree Corners. Be sure to jot down the location where your photos where taken.
Our contest will result in a small booklet with “Post Cards from Peachtree Corners”. We will also exhibit a small collection of prints in several locations around town.
Next month the details of how to submit your photos will be published here. Photos may be newly taken for this contest or from your archives. Rules are easy. Photos must be your creations, you must have publication rights and share those rights, non-exclusively, with the Peachtree Corners Photography Club. There will be some requirements on size to make sure that images look good on printed pages and in large exhibit prints.
You may submit multiple photos, there will be no entry fee for the first four of your photos.
