Artistic and Creative Photography - Workshop 2 - Adrian Lowe (9:00 AM E. Australia Standard Time)
Looking at Photography With Your Mind's Eye, Not Your Camera Lens - Workshop 2 This is the second 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.

Presenters Night (7:30 PM E. Australia Standard Time)
Warren Vievers:  The Influence of Impressionism on Photography My interest in photography has extended over decades - definitely long term.  Over the years I’ve exhibited in numerous National and International exhibitions, gaining the awards AFIAP and FAPS along the way.  Since 1987, I’ve been an accredited Photographic Society of Queensland judge. As well as delivering commentaries on images, I have made numerous presentations to camera clubs on a range of photographic topics. In addition, I’ve presented lectures at state and national conventions plus judges’ forums and training courses in Queensland and New South Wales.  My recent interests include exploring infra-red photography and photo impressionism using a range of techniques and equipment- some of it self-adapted. My very latest imagery includes what I choose to call Aberrations. delete

Bird Photography Outing (8:00 AM E. Australia Standard Time)
Bird Photography-  Sandy Camp Wetlands  Sandy Camp Wetlands Reserve is one of the best birding locations in Brisbane, even better than Oxley creek in David Jones' opinion. It has a mixture of water birds, small grass birds, parrots, kits, & hawks.  There are very good walking tracks around and through the reserve. From the car park to the first water track is only 60m. The walking track has two large water lagoons on each side with a bird hide on one of the lagoons. A 200mm lens will be able to take photos of the ducks, cormorants, darters, pelicans, jacanas and crakes. For the finches, manakins, kingfishers, fairy-wrens, warblers, cisticolas, parrots and cuckoos, it just depends on how close they are.
