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.
This is a bring a camera and shoot event, suitable for both the beginner and the more experienced photographer, in fact anyone who wishes to improve their photography skills through practice, the main emphasis is on developing creative compositional skills rather than technical expertise.
If possible please bring 2 prints of previous work to the event, so that we all have something to pass around, discuss and critique during the refreshment break.
This service is available in all branches of Rossmann and prints can easily be made there and then in approximately 5 minutes – 13cm x 18cm Premium Fotoabzüge mit weißem Rand = €0,23 per print.
A tablet or smart phone is unfortunately not a suitable alternative.
If you have problems with PayPal, or don’t have a PalPal account because you still live in the 19th century, please bring it in cash.
