Exploring Photography for Teens — June 2022

After a couple years it was wonderful to host our Exploring Photography teen summer camp again!

Over four afternoons this week, instructor Lisa Zirbel taught our students the fundamentals of photography across both digital and traditional film mediums. Students learned how to shoot 35mm black and white film with manual SLR cameras and make enlargements from their film in our photo lab. They also had the opportunity to make studio-lit portraits, which they processed using Adobe Photoshop to make inkjet prints of their photos. They even mixed film and digital photography both by making cyanotypes using negatives printed digitally from their own images, as well as by using botanicals and expired photo paper to make lumen prints in the sun during class.

To end all of our teen camps, on the final day we pin the students’ work on the wall and invite their families for a critique session to reflect on what they learned and the challenges they faced while creating their art.

There are still slots open for our July session of this summer camp as well!

No Strangers Opening Reception

We had a nice opening reception for this year’s No Strangers exhibition. With many in our community vaccinated, this is hopefully the last time for everyone to wear masks.

Thirty-two members have their work on display in No Strangers and we had the chance to meetup with most of them during the opening reception. It sure feels good to once again shake hands and meet in person.

Neil and Audrey talking about Neil’s new work. Audrey’s work was next to Neil’s and her book is on a pedestal. 

Fred’s showed a variety of his beautiful gelatin silver prints.

Here’s Shari in front of her Suminagoshi on Hosho paper is a reflection on a friend’s life as a testimony to the power of relationships.

Chuck works in a variety of mediums and for the member show he entered photographs printed on metal.

Encaustic Imagery with Sherrie Posternak

What a fun weekend workshop to create imagery using simple to advanced encaustic techniques. In this 2-day workshop students made photo transfers on sample boards, using seven different types of printed surfaces, three methods of transferring, and six different ways of “sealing in” the transfers.
