Do You Live Near Loveland, Colorado?
If you do….perhaps I’ll see you next Monday 8/12/2013 at the Loveland Photographic Society?
Loveland camera club to focus on black and white photography
His topic for the evening is “Why Black and White.”
Thompson will share his basic rules for creating great black and white images.
Since 2004 Cole Thompson has been in over 100 juried exhibitions and was the recipient of the “Photographer of the Year” from the Black and White Spider Awards. His work, “The Ghosts of Auschwitz and Birkenau,” has appeared in B&W Magazine, LensWork and Silvershotz.
Thompson is best known for his dark images, deep blacks and extreme contrasts.
Few can see like Thompson. One need only go to his website at colethompsonphotography.com to see he is not the average photographer.
Brice Harbert, one of the few Loveland Photographic Society club members to concentrate on black and white photography, said he has never gone to a meeting, where Thompson was speaking, and not come away with something new and enlightening. A topic he usually covers is how he often breaks standard “rules” and composition guidelines and still comes out with a stunning photograph.
If interested in black and white photography, this is a speaker worth hearing.
The Loveland Photographic Society meeting will be held at the Vineyard Building, 900 Josephine Court in Loveland.
The club meeting is open to the public and begins at 6:15 p.m. Monday with a short business meeting, followed by the featured speaker at 6:30 and closing with the monthly photo competition. The general public is invited.
