    “Decisive Moment”

    Don’t blink or you’ll miss the all-important “Decisive Moment” which is inspired by the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson.

    Cartier-Bresson says in his book, The Decisive Moment,

    “To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”

    Members may submit up to four images.  Each should express your interpretation of  “The Decisive Moment”  

    Entry Deadline Sept 1, 2015

    Applying Textures to Photographs

    What is a texture? We know texture when we see it, but when we refer to a "Texture" as photographic tool we mean a photograph that is placed on top of another photograph and then "blended" or adjusted to affect how it is portrayed. "Textures" can be just that, photographs of rust, peeling paint, old paper, etc., but they can also be clouds, bokeh, bubbles, water drops, wallpaper, walls, words, old letters, grass, etc. The specific texture that you pick will affect how your photograph underneath looks, but you have additional choices by changing the blending mode for that texture later. Changing the blending modes alters the way that particular texture interacts with the photograph underneath. Join Lisa Cuchara as she shows you how to edit some of your photographs to give them a different feel by applying textures to them. Textures can add a mood or a feel to an image; making the photograph softer, warmer, grungier, older, etc. In this intermediate workshop (assumes knowledge of layers and masks) Lisa will show you how to collect your own textures, how to use textures, how to remove textures from part of an image, how to remove color from a texture and change the color of the texture and how to prevent the texture from affecting of the photograph below while leaving the color. Bring your computer, with Photoshop CS6 or CC installed. Participants should have a working knowledge of basic Photoshop, and of basic layers and masking. Files and notes will be provided.
