Life Appreciation Photography - Mississauga Camera Club Workshop

Zoom Meeting

Mississauga, Ontario

A perspective on who we really are: photographs appreciating the beauty and diversity of life that surrounds us. Photography enables us to recognize, enjoy and understand life around us. How to do this for lifeforms other than our own is the subject of this workshop. Birds and other animals, bugs, flowers, plants and trees are all included. This workshop will be delivered in two parts.

Part I: Life Appreciation Photography: Definition, Motivation and Evoking Emotion in Images

Conventional Nature Photography stresses rigorous honesty in images and surreptitious observation of subjects. Life Appreciation Photography emphasizes images that evoke emotion and educate us, while preserving subject realism. Often lifeforms observe us as we observe them. Such communing with Nature has been extensively shown in studies to be beneficial to us in so many ways. How to evoke emotion in our images comprises the main subject of this part of the workshop. Steve presents a new, simple method for identifying suitable subjects and taking into account the viewing audience. He will show plenty of example images for us to assess and discuss.

Part 2 of this workshop will be held on October 31st.
