Photoodles — Digital Art from Photographs

Do you turn some of your photos into digital art? It is a lot of fun. Photo-manipulations, photo-paintings, photo-abstractions, whatever you might call yours, are a wonderful way to let your imagination and creativity roam.

At our next meetings members are encouraged to share their creations and to tell about the tools and techniques for turning photos into impressive new art.

Come share and learn!

Photoodles

Topic for our November 2018 Meeting

Photoodles

When you just have to play with your photos …

Some call it digital art, photo-manipulations, photo-paintings, photo-abstractions. There is no accepted term for playing in your post-processing and editing tools with images.Here we’ll call them “Photoodles“.

For our next meeting, your assignment, should you decide to accept it, is to take one or more of your photographs and let your creative imagination and your editing tools take over. Photos take the viewer to a place, a time, a subject. Photoodles remove all that and grab the beholder and dive deep into your imagination.

My Style, my Genre, my Kind of Photography

Do you have one photo genre that’s your favorite, even though you might enjoy several others?  Here’s a sample of styles, genres some of our PCPC members have as favorites:

  • Astronomy

  • Family

  • Landscapes

  • Cosplay

  • Nature

  • Portraits

  • Sports

  • Black&White

  • Street and Festival

  • Travel

How about you? We’d like to have you name your favorite genre (not necessarily from this list) and send 3 to 5 photos illustrating why you find that genre so fascinating. At the October 9 meeting, we’ll project your photos on the screen and invite you to come up front and tell why these photos — and the genre overall — are so special.  Looking forward to hearing your story!

To participate send an email giving your genre, your name as you want it to appear in lights, and attach your photos (please use size of 1000 to 2400 px max side), to this address:  meeting@pcphotoclub.org

Member Participation

“Why Do I Keep Reaching for My Camera?”

Think about your photography and come share your ideas. Here are some questions that are designed to provoke thought and reflection on our own behavior.

  • You’ve taken some wonderful images — why aren’t you satisfied with those?
  • Who are you taking photos for?”
  • What do you hope that audience will experience?
  • What’s in it for you?

Come with a favorite photo of yours to share with the group. Bring a print – any size – or your laptop with the image, or a flash drive (to use a group member’s laptop). Note: There is no internet access at the center, so don’t plan on downloading at the meeting.

Plan to take two or three minute to present your thoughts.

After you discuss your reasons for continuing to reach for your camera, the group will parade slowly past your seat at the table and see your photo. The photo can be any size and any subject. Questions, ooh’s and aah’s, all sorts of things might come your way during the parade!
