Photographic Highlights of Japan ~ Charles Lehman

Lehman20121111_94_Send5

Japan is an interesting and intriguing destination, perhaps the most dynamic culture in the world today, and full of surprises for the uninitiated. Did you know, for example, that Japan has some of the finest bakeries in the world, but then, who goes to Japan for the baked goods? While information is widely available from books and travel guides and there are many tours to the iconic places around the country, there is so much more under the surface and down the next town that visitors never get to see or experience. Japan is in many ways like America, a place where you can spend a lifetime and not see all there is to see. So, my intent is to show some of this, what most folks miss.

Image Review & Analysis

For our LTPC meeting on April 15th, Doug & Laura Bennett will be back with us. They will be providing an Image Analysis and Critique Session now that photography shows season is upon us.

Whether you have participated in shows before or are considering doing so someday, you won’t want to miss what promises to be an enlightening evening. Doug & Laura will offer their analysis and suggestions that hopefully will help you select your most competitive entries, what improvements you could consider and suggestions on presentation (matting and framing).

Doug & Laura are convinced print competitions are loaded with learning opportunities particularly when critique is provided. In fact, Doug has been competing aggressively in PPA District competitions lately learning more and more on the keys to successful competition prints and he promises to be sharing all he has learned.

So even if you believe you are not quite ready to enter into a show, please come on out to this review session as they will strive to help you further down that path to better imagery and confidence to enter.

 

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO SUBMIT YOUR ENTRIES:

- Select up to 3 images you would like to have reviewed during the meeting and email them to BennettPhotography@ymail.com (note that is “ymail” and not “gmail”) NLT 6:00 am Sat morning, April 13th. (OPEN TO LTPC Members only!)

- Because Laura and Doug will be analyzing the images prior to the meeting, images brought to the meeting on thumb drives can’t be accommodated.

- Submit your images in JPEG format resized to 1000 pixels on the longest side (width or height) saved at quality level 8 to 10. Name your files in this format: your name-mage title.jpeg

GAME PLAN FOR THE REVIEW/CRITIQUE SESSION:

Depending on the number of images submitted, Doug & Laura will decide how many images can be reviewed in the time available. If they cannot do all three images each person submits, they will select images that best demonstrate the instructional objectives.

Dabbling with photography back in the ‘70s, Doug didn’t really begin to pursue photography until 2003 when he bought a disposable film camera to photograph his tulips. With a rekindling of his passion for photography, he began a pursuit to learn how to capture images of the landscape that is all around us.

His love for landscape photography can be traced back to his childhood and family sightseeing vacations touring the western U.S. and Canada by car. These early experiences were further fueled by his father’s “Arizona Highways” magazines, which always left him in awe with its beautiful scenic images, particularly those of Josef Muench.

- “Best of Show” in the 2011 & 2012 Professional Photographers of Colorado annual print competition

Taking Stock Images – Creating a Home Based Photography Business in a Snap! – Teri Virbickis

Green ApplesWant to make money with your photography?
Thought about getting into selling stock images, but don’t have a clue how?
Wondering what it takes to sell your images with stock agencies?

This presentation will give you a high level overview of what stock photography is and isn’t, trends in the industry, how getting involved in stock agencies can be a profitable way to sell your images and create a home-based photography business.

ABOUT TAKING STOCK IMAGES PHOTOGRAPHY
Taking Stock Images Photography will assist you in learning the in’s and out’s of selling your images on stock photography agencies. Not long ago, I made the leap into selling my images on stock photography agencies for profit.  As I dove into this venture, I have learned, and continue to learn, that there is A LOT TO KNOW about selling images on stock agencies!

The Taking Stock Images plan is simple, I “hold your hand” and share with group members, the things I have learned along the way to building my portfolios and stock photography business.  I continue to grow my portfolio, as I learn more and more about how to be successful in this business.

ABOUT TERI VIRBICKIS
Teri has over 25 years experience as a Marketing/Graphic Design professional who has worked her entire career helping large corporations and individuals create impact with their marketing campaigns. She is very passionate about helping people and companies learn how to generate buzz about their products and services, especially these days when budgets and economic resources are always under fire. When people ask her what she does, she will smile and add a little chuckle, then tell them she is an Impactologist! Naturally people ask “what the heck is an Impactologist”? Teri then will tell you, it’s simple, she practices IMPACTOLOGY:  The Art of Creating Impact!

Her entire career, she has always been on the buying end of the stock photography world, until about 3 years ago.  She has a vast knowledge and many years of experience, in the purchasing of  images, for a wide range of usages in marketing campaigns, collateral and various other graphic design applications. She have come to know, that the purchase and usage of photographic images is not only big business, but also a very misunderstood business by most people. It wasn’t until she began to sell her own images, and learned the struggles photographers have when embarking on making a living with their photography.  THERE IS SOOOOO MUCH TO KNOW, about the licensing/purchasing of photographic images.  This is one of the reason why Taking Stock Images Photography was created, to assist photographers in learning about the in’s and out’s of the business of selling your images.
