Lens As Brush, Camera As Canvas
We are excited to welcome Nikon Ambassador, photographer, Vincent Versace to Portland. Come to hear him talk about the creative path he takes to creating his amazing images.
Every artist has an instrument. Painters have their brushes and canvas, sculptors their chisels and stone, dancers their bodies. All of these instruments are used to express the artist’s individual voice and vision. For the photographer the instrument is a camera, the brush is the lens, and the canvas is the ultimate expression of artistic voice and vision being the final image.
In this lecture Vincent will discuss the journey that he takes, or rather the journey that takes him, down the path of creating his images. From people, places and things, San Francisco to New York, Burma to India, infrared black and white to full-color visible spectrum, Vincent Versace will discuss his use of cameras, digital infrared black and white as well as the lenses he uses, the post processing choices software, and why he makes the choices he makes. It is not about taking a photograph, but how to be taken by a photograph.
When: Friday, May 20, 2016, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Cost: General – ; Student – Free
