Meetup - Spring Fling

Winter has finally taken a bow and said its goodbye. It's a great time to dust off your camera and get out there and MAKE pictures again.

So with the nicer weather, we're having a short outing in the downtown core. We'll take a walk around the neighborhood and get inspired. Also a great opportunity to meet fellow photographers and talk shop. 

Please RSVP
Saturday May 14, 10am - 12:00ish
215 Spadina Ave. (in the lobby)

At the end of the walk, we'll loop back to 215 Spadina Ave. and for those who are interested, we'll do a short critique using our ipads. Our approach is giving you constructive criticism; what's good about the shot and ways it could have been improved. It's the best way to learn.

See you then!

F11PROJECT IS PROUD TO PRESENT 'SCENE IN TORONTO' BY VICTOR YEUNG

One of my fascinations as a photographer is the process of observation - looking at and seeing things. So while I like to capture in camera the people and places that catch my eye, I'm also interested in what catches the eye of others - that which they choose to look at, that which they can't help but look at, that which they choose to ignore and that to which they are oblivious.

What catches my eye are the decisive moments, when all the elements in a scene come together to best tell a story, the quiet moments in between that are more about mood than action and the moments of transition yet in between those where on the surface, everything is visual chaos, but on occasion you can see these odd but compelling tableaus forming which are rife with so many story possibilities.

This show is an attempt at weaving together a tapestry of my own observations with those of others to comment on the observation process itself.

About this series:

The work shown here is a collection of work that I produced for both personal projects and commissioned illustration work over a number of years.

There is no thematic string that ties all of the work together but they are connected by a stylistic approach to creating images using found objects, ephemera- like board game pieces and photographs etc as the design elements. My work has been influenced by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Kurt Schwitters and Fred Otnes among others.

The images shown are a combination of collage, 3 dimensional assemblage and digital montage work.

In this workshop, we will have an in-depth look at Lightroom's Develop Module tool set and concentrate on learning the robust editing tools for processing raw captures to make your images shine.

We will be using both the instructor and participants' raw captures for demonstration and comparison throughout the session. Participants will each bring one sample file fully processed and the instructor will process the same set of raw captures using various editing tools within the Develop Module for comparison. As a bonus, each participant will enjoy a take-home print of his or her processed file. 


Topics Covered:

  • Smart Previews
  • Global Adjustments Overview
    • Colour Adjustments
    • Tonal Adjustments
    • Sharpening
    • Noise Reduction
  • Local Adjustments
    • Selective colour adjustments
    • Highlight and shadow recovery
    • Straighten, crop and rotate
    • Adjustment brushes
    • Advanced healing brush
    • Dust spots removal with Visualization tool
    • Lens correction
    • Perspective control with Upright

  • Syncing Settings

 

Level: Intermediate/Advanced

This workshop is recommended for photographers with good working knowledge of Lightroom, who are interested in taking their raw captures to the next level.

*Participants should bring their own laptops with a working copy of Lightroom 5 or 6.


Life After Digital was conceived from a photographer’s lament that there is no life after digital: you shoot hundreds of frames and are locked up at the computer for the rest of the day if not days, organizing, adjusting and processing files.

The Life After Digital initiative consists of intimate seminars and artist talks in the IX Gallery. From time to time, we offer workshops aimed at demystifying and smoothing out the digital workflow.

In partnership with guest artists and experts, we will inspire you while giving you the tools to work more efficiently, produce quality images and in the process reclaim a good portion of your personal time. Particular attention will be given to print-oriented issues, for artists who would like to explore the potential of current technologies to open new doors and bring ideas to life.

The LAD mandate is to have fun. Our goals are to create a community spirit, encourage discussion, and foster a better understanding of the possibilities of digital imaging and printing.

On April 25, 2015, a powerful earthquake struck Nepal, killing over 9,000 people, injuring 23,000 more and leaving 450,000 displaced. Entire villages were destroyed in mere moments. The international community responded with supplies and millions of dollars in relief.

About this series:

Have you lost your marbles? 
 
You have probably heard or used this expression yourself. It likely had something to do with playing the very competitive childhood games that involved marbles during the first half of the 20th century in North America.
 
The first marbles were produced from stone, primarily limestone, although other materials such as agate and alabaster were used. The manufacture of earthenware marbles became very popular in the 1800s, and by the 1840s glass marbles were being made in Germany. 

I love the look and feel of marbles. My eye is always drawn to the well worn, abused and damaged pieces - they have so much more character unlike the commercial photography world strives for the perfect product.

This exhibit shows a few marbles that I have collected over the years from Canada, USA and Cuba. I hope the images bring back some thoughts of your own past.

enjoy!

~ Bryan Wilcox

About the artist:

Bryan Wilcox was fortunate to grow up in a family that shared a unique passion for the craft of photography. His mother originally worked as a hand-colouring artist in a Montreal photo lab back in the 1940’s. In the years that followed, his father perfected his photography skills in the family darkroom, developing black and white images for family and friends. 

Since 1978, Bryan has been photographing automobiles and architecture in black and white imagery, then painstakingly hand tinting his selected prints. His work has exhibited at Toronto’s ‘One of a Kind Craft Show’, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit, and the Los Angeles Photography Center. Wilcox has participated in numerous group shows across Canada and his work is represented in collections in the United States, Canada and Hong Kong.

f11project is proud to present 'Buddhism in Nepal' at Kingsway Chiropractic Centre in the Junction

 

Opening Reception: May 2nd, 2015. 6-9 pm.

Kingsway Chiropractic Centre in the Junction

Visit Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival page here.

Religion in Nepal is an intricate mix of faiths, traditions, festivals and doctrines. Nepal is the world’s only Hindu nation with 87% of Nepalese officially declared Hindus. Buddhism is the second largest religion in this mountain kingdom and Buddhist influences permeate all layers of the society. Due to the close proximity to Tibet, Tibetan Buddhism is the most dominant and widely practiced form of buddhism in this tiny kingdom.

The intermingling of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs and practices is commonplace with Hindus worshipping at Buddhist temples and Buddhists worshipping at Hindu temples. This rich dual faith tradition binds both groups together and ensure social coherence. 

The images in this exhibit connect the viewers to the daily religious objects and acts of worship that were captured from a recent 2013 trip to Nepal. (A few of the images from the gallery above will be on view in the exhibit.)

Opening Reception: May 8th, 2014.  7 - 10 PM
The Rivoli Lounge. 334 Queen Street West, 2nd Floor, Toronto M5V 2A2


Little Ones

Childhood is a magical time. Not only are children growing up physically, but their nascent identities are being forged by their genetic disposition, their particular environment and family dynamics and of course to their individual experiences. It's a mostly idyllic time filled with play and exploration, achievement and frustration, joy and anger, possibly all in half an hour. And since children have yet to learn all the behavioural codes of adulthood, all these experiences are expressed without filters which make for vivid pictures. As a street photographer, I just try to capture these special moments when I see them.

About the artist

Victor Yeung studied photography at York University and Ryerson Polytechnical Institute and now works as a professional photographer specializing in people and places. Victor can be found wandering the streets of Toronto taking in the sights, sometimes taking pictures. You can see more of his work at:

About this series: Makros

In this series of photographs, Louis explores the world of texture with everyday natural organic objects via macrophotography.

The beautiful natural patterns and arrangements on ordinary fruits and vegetables are presented with a twist. The vegetables and fruits captured up close reveal intimate textures and intricate design only nature can offer.

About the artist

Hi, my name is Louis Au. I was born on the other side of the planet and now I make my bed in Toronto. Along the way I fell in love with photography, earned a BFA and learned figure drawing among other things. Curiosity is vital. I am passionate about seeing the culturally diverse world through the lens of my camera while capturing stories at 1/125th of a second.

I’ve been called a travel, event and fine art image maker. Photography has been my profession for the past 20 plus years. From my early days inhaling chemicals in the darkroom to pixel peeping in front of my computer screen now, the creative process of image making remains unchanged. It is always about “capturing” the moment, regardless of the medium.

The Rivoli Lounge 334 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON Canada

MORE THAN YOU SEE

Reflections are the little visual “extras” that the combination of light and reflective surfaces offer us. They are there for the taking, if we even register them as part of our visual landscape.

Most intriguing to me are the reflections that do not exclude that which is on the other side of the window, the inside and outside mingling in one frame. Photographed, these reflections flatten space into complex compositions of transparent, overlapping layers, and in doing so, create virtual vignettes with a story of their own. Taken out of their original context, reflected compositions encourage the viewer to decipher the layers, making sense of forms on one plane dissected by those of another.

Only cropping, to emphasize the details of the layers, has altered these images. No forced overlapping of images, no photoshopping involved.

Images were taken in New York City, Toronto, and Paris (France)

Landscape photographers celebrate the beauty of nature by pursuing a pure and unspoiled depiction of the natural environment with a strong emphasis on landforms, textures, weather and ambient light. Landscape photography essentially captures spaces within the world, whether vast or microscopic, serene or moody.

In this group exhibit by six members from the Toronto Digital Photography Club, we are presenting a small collection of photographs that depict the awe and wonder of the natural environment that we inhabit. Some of the images shown are about the vividness of mother nature's colour palette. In contrast, the black and white images are primarily about textures. Some images communicate the tranquility and moodiness of the place in time while others are about the quality of light. The collection of images selected for this show are quite diverse in both subject matter and execution.

The artists participating in this group show are Luba Citrin, Roger Correia, Edith Itzcovici-Levy, Dino Melissa, Leon Shahar and Sunchie Yang.
