Q1 Digital Themes Explained
Architecture is one of the most appreciated art forms that date back to the time before the pyramids were erected. It took many forms; even the simplest geometrical lines were considered architecture. As the years went on, more complex creations were introduced to the world. There were now intricate designs and for some, symbolism. Today, each work of architecture depicts more than just a design; each work carries an identity, distinct characteristics and meaning.
Environmental portraits typically portray a person in their natural environment. Different from traditional portraits shot in a studio, locational portraits capture the character of the subject and give insight into their daily life making for a more personal image, generally telling some kind of story about who the subject is.
This can be achieved anywhere from their work place, home, or anywhere where they like to spend their time. However, you can also setup an environmental shoot to illustrate their character in certain scenario or situation. The benefit of photographing people in a natural environment is people feel more relaxed and comfortable being photographed resulting in better and stronger images.
Close-up head shots aren’t really defined as ‘environmental portraits’. Nevertheless, if taken in a natural environment these can add another aspect in telling a story about your subject. There’s nothing quite as personal as gazing into a person’s eyes that is believed to be the gateway to one’s soul.
People's Choice theme for the February 6th meeting is Shoes/Foot Apparel. The JCC Website has all the themes listed for 2019 and guidelines.

Quote of the Week
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
