Artistic and Creative Photography - Workshop 1 - Adrian Lowe (9:00 AM E. Australia Standard Time)
Looking at Photography With Your Mind's Eye, Not Your Camera Lens - Workshop 1 This is the first workshop in a series of three half-day workshops hosted by Brisbane Camera Group and run by Adrian Lowe on artistic, creative photography to produce images with outstanding visual impact. These Workshops will not cover technical camera skills associated with taking photos. Instead these talks will explain how the mind works in the background in relation to a scene, and how we see, interpret and use techniques in camera and in post-production to highlight those unique elements.  They all come from our prehistoric conditioning and still remain our subconscious motivators to this day. Adrian will cover such things as why do we peer into shadows, get distracted by a lot of highlight blocks, why do we like repetition, high contrast, BW, why does expression get to us? Why does a broad smile make us smile automatically?  The workshops will delve into the psychology of photography and how we can create extraordinary images with strong visual impact. Adrian will present concepts based around how the subconscious gets attracted to, and distracted by, different elements in a scene/subject. Knowing what these are and the effect they have on you allows you to shoot to get the most from the scene, and ultimately to get the viewer using those same subconscious reactions to be moved by your image Adrian Lowe is the foundation President of The Masters' Apprentices Photography Club. He has been a professional photographer and operated a successful processing business back in the days of film. He has been a member of the Photographic Society of Queensland executive and a source of dynamic reformist ideas. Adrian has wide ranging interests in Philosophy, Video Photography and Personal Development strategies to name a few. Another area of expertise he has worked in is Hypnotherapy.

Introduction to Lightroom Part 2 - Workshop by Ray Shorter (7:30 PM E. Australia Standard Time)
Following-on from his Introduction to Lightroom Workshop late in 2017, Ray Shorter will be conducting another workshop – Introduction to Lightroom Part 2.  After a very brief revision of Part 1, in Part 2 we will be delving further into the Library Module (e.g. Import Pre-sets, types and uses of Collections, tagging, sorting, finding and deleting photos etc.), the Develop Module (e.g. further tools for enhancing photos, use of Virtual Copies, synchronising changes across several photos etc) and Exporting photos (eg DPIs for the web or BCG competitions as well as for making prints either yourself or at a print lab). If you have been using Adobe Bridge to organise your photos and are wondering why you should use Lightroom, have a read of this brief article Ray prepared to compare the two.  This workshop will be using what Adobe now calls Lightroom Classic CC, that is, the one based on your own computer (PC or Mac) and not the one based on cloud storage. So, if you would like to learn a bit more about how to use Lightroom to easily organise your photos and enhance them simply and effectively, come along to this next free workshop in BCG’s Lightroom series. delete
