This presentation is one you do not want to miss.
Professional photographer and author Andre Gallant will be traveling down from New Brunswick, Canada to judge the Greater Lynn International Exhibition and has graciously agreed to stay over to do a presentations for us on “Expressive Photography”. Andre describes his program as an exploration into various expressive photography techniques such as Dreamscapes, Multiple Exposures, Panning and Montages which is the combination of 2 or more photographs. André will show some of his work and describe in detail how the images were created in camera, followed by a brief Photoshop demonstration. Andre states ”With my personal photography, like the expressionists, I’m less concerned about showing a representation of the subject matter, but would rather like to convey my feelings towards the subject matter, or unleash an emotion onto my canvases. I want the viewer to feel the photographs rather than view them”.
Our speaker is a freelance photographer who travels the world over, taking expressive, creative photographs. A regular contributor to Photo Life magazine, his work has appeared in numerous magazines such as Outdoor Photographer, Canadian Camera, Canadian Living, En Route, etc. and he has been the recipient of two National Magazine Awards for his photography. He is also the author of numerous publications including the books “Expressionism: Digital Dreamscapes and other Techniques”, “Destinations: A Photographer’s Journey”, “Dreamscapes: Exploring Photo Montages”, and “Photographing People at Home and Around the World”. Andre teaches photography workshops with Freeman Patterson with whom he co-wrote “Photo Impressionism and the Subjective Image”, as well as, the revised edition of “Photography for the Joy of It”. He lectures internationally, throughout Canada, and the US.
