Photography at GPAG this Summer!

The Grimsby Public Art Gallery is proud to offer 3 fantastic photography workshops this Summer!

STILL LIFE PHOTOGRAPHY
With Phil Gebhardt
Saturday, July 16, 2016
1pm - 5pm
1 Session
$45 members/$55 non-members

Still-life photography is perhaps the ultimate in self-indulgent photography. Unlike other forms of photography, there is no need to release the shutter quickly to get the shot. Explore the world of planned still life and discovered still life. Learn to create arresting images with simple objects, lighting and backgrounds. You will gain an understanding of lighting, colour and composition.  The foundation for your success will be a quick study of the techniques used by the Old Masters as well as contemporary photographers.

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
With Phil Gebhardt
Saturday, August 6, 2016
1pm - 5pm
1 Session
$45 members/$55 non-members

 No one would mistake a passport photo for a portrait.  A passport photo merely provides a physical description of a person; a portrait reflects the character and personality of your subject. In this session, you’ll discover the basics for making great portraits of the people you know using the equipment you already have. Take home the secrets of the Old Masters who painted portraits that people still admire.  . Theory without practice won’t create portraits, so you’ll have the opportunity to put the basics into practice during the session.
