Personal Project Presentation
Throughout 2018 a small group of club members have been developing personal projects on subjects that interest them as photographers. During monthly collaborative get-togethers progress has been discussed, suggestions made and advice followed…..sometimes. Much has been learned and skills have been honed.
Tonight is an opportunity for this band of dedicated shooters to present their project in whatever form to the club as a whole. They may talk about their approach to their very different and individual projects, how they went about capturing the images, the challenges they faced and how they arrived at the final product, whether that be projected images, prints or a photobook or in one case in particular, an informative photo laden database of intrepid trekking.
So please show your support to this group by attending this special event. After seeing their accomplishments you may even be inspired to join the group in 2019. There is much to be learned about photography and oneself by undertaking a personal project of your own. This group will support and guide you no matter your level of expertise.
For those presenting their work, this evening should be an intimate conversation about you and your work. It’s not only about pictures you shot, so tell the story, catch the interest of those listening. What is the subject; why you started work on that project; why it matters and what is the importance of that work for you. Whatever feedback you receive – whether round praise, practical advice or constructive criticism from your peers – you will learn something from all them but some will be more useful than others. Just remember that the first to believe in your work must be you.
