Saturday – 09/06/2018 – Classic Days on the Ku’damm – Form und Texture

This is a bring a camera and shoot event.

Why is form important? 

Because a photograph is actually only a 2 dimensional representation of a 3 dimensional world, without this missing dimension everything lacks volume and is reduced to just a collection of 2 dimensional shapes, so when the form of an object is important, the skill lies with the ability to somehow re-inject this missing dimension back into the image.

Luckily for us though, the brain has an innate ability to interpret light and shade in terms of depth, and can therefore easily replace the missing binocular depth information from the eyes with a pseudo version of its own.

Form is therefore a function of light, it is created by the position of the subject relative to the light source and the camera, and clever use of this can produce images that are very realistic.

Classic days on the Kü’damm

And the annual old-timer rally on the Ku’damm is an excellent opportunity to practice taking photos with interesting forms, because there’s always a huge slice of automobile history on display, in particular the classic chromed and styled automobiles of the 1950s Rock and Roll era.
