First, we will share a short program highlighting
the work submitted to the Valley Land Fund and Quinta
Mazatlan's 2014 Southern Exposures youth photo contest.
This is truly going to be an extraordinary presentation
that you do not want to miss. I met and viewed first hand
the work of some of our very talented youth while assisting
Ruth Hoyt teach photography at Quinta Matzatlan.
Second, the program, "Take Two,"
is where TexNEP members and friends share two photos of
the same subject presented in two distinct formats. The
idea was generated from watching several photographers
present coupled photographs on Facebook, each with distinct
creative differences. The Facebook responses were informative
and interesting for both audience and photographer - a
real learning experience. For example, color vs. black
and white, light/dark exposures, perspective differences,
cropping differences or any other two presentations. This
program requires audience participation - you can share
what you like best about the coupled photos. Which presentation
do you "feel" fits the subject for your taste?
Which one evokes a specific emotion? Basically, the audience
will help all of us understand what they see in our work.
I have posted examples on the Texas Nature
and Environmental Photographers Facebook page.
