OLLI Photo Club – Projects

To all members, and potential members, of the OPC —

In 2016 the GMU School of Theater (ranked 8th in the nation) asked OLLI if we could provide photographers for head-shots, publicity photos, final dress rehearsals and photo calls.  Several members of the OLLI Photography Club volunteered for eight of these events in 2016 and 13 in 2017.  Four shoots are scheduled in 2018 to complete the 2017-18 academic year (see schedule below).

The School has been very appreciative of our work and impressed by the quality of our images.  The School’s production staff and students have used our work for evaluation of the productions and for publicity brochures.  As you wander the halls of the GMU Arts buildings you may even see our work displaying in slideshows on the monitors and hanging on walls in print form.

Those photographers who have participated have been treated as professionals, valued for their work and have received complimentary tickets to their productions.  In addition to having the opportunity to observe productions in ways no theater subscriber would, each of us has learned a great deal about photography, technically and artistically, as we coped with challenging lighting conditions and unfamiliar subject matter.

I appreciate the dedication of those who have participated and encourage others in our club to join us in the remaining shoots.

Tom Simpson

Meet with others interested in photography and develop skills by participating in the monthly theme photo submissions. Be informed, and perhaps inspired, by expert speakers. The Photography Club welcomes all members, whether they use a basic camera or specialized equipment, and whether they are new to photography or have had years of experience. We discuss technical aspects of photography as well as the artistic aspects of visual design. On the fourth Friday of the month, workshops will cover specific topics in more detail. Contact Dan Feighery at Dandj_ffx_va@cox.net for further information.

Presentation – Friday, October 10, at 9:30 am.

The speaker for this month is Cam Miller.

Cam Miller is a retired educator turned professional fine art photographer who lives in New Market, Maryland.  After living and teaching on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, she moved five years ago to Central Maryland, where she is fully engaged in the arts community.  She is a member of several museums, arts councils, and photography clubs, as well as one of the co-chairs for Easels in Frederick.  Cam has won numerous awards for her photographs, which include light paintings, landscapes, birds, butterflies, and architecture.  She teaches photography classes at Frederick Community College as well as does private tutoring.  Recently, Cam completed an ambitious yearlong personal project of doing a daily photo walk, after which she wrote about where she had walked and posted the photos on her blog.  To see the postings of her daily photo walk, visit camscamerashots.blogspot.com.  Her photo website is www.camscamerashots.com.

Presentation:
Taking a walk every day is good for one’s well-being;  but taking walk every day for an entire year, snapping between 30-40 photos on that walk, and then writing about the walk via a blog is a full-blown personal photography project.  And that is just what Cam Miller, of New Market, MD, did.  Between Monday, September 3, 2012 and Monday, September 2, 2013, she walked, photographed, and recorded her experiences via an online blog, shared with hundreds who read it online each day.  Cam will share the lessons she learned during her daily photo walks, including great places to walk, tips for seasonal changes, photo workflow, and more.  She will also share how others may adapt her ambitious project to suit their own needs. Hopefully her presentation will inspire to you get out and take a photo walk, too!

January             Vintage Items.  Do you have an object at home that you want to photograph to save the memory before you downsize? Ever been to an outdoor antique market and wish you could buy that antique thingamajig – photograph it instead to preserve the memory.

February           Toys: Show Us Your Inner Child.  You’re looking for some fun photography ideas and your toys are just looking for some fun. Give your toys the life they deserve. Put them in the scenes they were meant to be in. Tractors and gorillas don’t belong on a shelf. Dolls should have a tea party. Look at your stuff and determine where each item is supposed to be. Then, go to that place and give your stuff what is wants: a life far removed from the humdrum life of shelfdom.

March               Vintage Signs.  Do some research and see how many old signs from decades past remain. Try capturing unique or interesting signs of any age.

April                  Curves.  Curves make an image easy to look at by leading the viewer’s eye through the frame. It is almost as if the photographer takes the viewer by the hand, draws them into the landscape, and points the way. The viewer’s eyes are compelled to follow the line.
Curves are graceful, rhythmic, and dynamic and add energy to an image. They can separate or connect elements or simply offer a balance.

C curves, or semi-circles, are probably the easiest curves to find since almost any curves qualify. They can be anything from the gentle curve of a seashore, lakeshore, a rounded rock, or grasses blowing in the wind.

May                   Man-altered Landscapes.  Rather than making an image of a traditional landscape, look for a shot that shows how man has altered his surroundings. Is it a canyon of skyscrapers, footprints in the sand, a fence?

June                  Animals.  If you have gone on a safari great – you probably have some fantastic wild animal images. Please don’t feel like you have to go on safari to capture a great animal image. Your pet might prove the perfect subject. Small animals or birds in the park are equally great. Focus on the eyes, get the fur sharp. Another great macro opportunity.

July                    I Love a Parade.  Get physically close to the people you are photographing. Let them see that you are taking their photo which allows interaction with them if only by eye contact. They know they’re on display in the parade and expect to have their photo taken many times. If you are otherwise hesitant or tentative photographing people this is a perfect opportunity because you have a whole stream of willing subjects literally parading in front of you (sorry – pun intended). Sometimes you’ll get a great reaction when they see your camera. Parades can be visually stimulating, and overly busy so getting in closer will help solve those problems. Pick one person, or one part of a float and get closer.

August               No Meeting Scheduled.

September        Weather.  Capture an identifiable facet of weather (storm clouds, rain, snow, use your imagination.)

October             Fall Colors.  Fall is a photographer’s dream season. It’s the time when nature explodes with color and misty mornings are whispering “Hey look at me, wouldn’t I make just the most amazing photograph?” Go our early enough to catch dew on a colored leaf or a misty reflection.ind of weather there is, and where the sun positioned in the frame.

November         Have Fun with It.  When you are photographing a mundane object, you don’t need to worry about it growing tired of posing, so have fun with this project and take as much time as you need. Try different angles, lie on the ground, climb up on something, do whatever it takes to snap pictures that transform ordinary into extraordinary. For more inspiration, pay attention to other photographers when you are out at a popular attraction and observe their positions. Try mimicking their positions to see what they are seeing because even if you look odd, the great photographs you take are worth it.

December         Open.
