Minimalism and Abstraction in Photography Meetup - Magnuson Park - 9 am - 2 hours
What happens when we ignore many of the compositional rules of photography and eliminate the obvious subject of the photograph?

What happens when we eliminate elements from a photograph and focus on a single element?

Abstraction and minimalism are elements of photography grouped together but each have unique challenges and benefits.

We will discuss conceptual and compositional implications of both techniques, as well as allowing plenty of time to make photographs!

I though it was good. I like that I learned that it is easier to size images for submission in LR and add watermarks vs PS. Charlies personality was great.

I absolutely loved it. Charlie was a very good communicator, that clearly came to the Meetup with a few goals in mind. The location was great, I appreciated all the comments and suggestions that Charlie made. Also, sometimes when hosting an event, you may have a group that is a little on the quiet/shy side. Charlie was great with knowing when to jump in himself and get it rolling.

I was very pleased with this event. I felt so much better about how to use my camera and take photographs without feeling so frustrated. Charlie was really great! Very informative & helpful! He even showed me a few tricks with my camera I had no idea about.

Excellent! Jay , the instructor is very knowledgable. I was thinking 3 hours is a long class, but the time flew by. I could hardly believe it was over. For the first time in my life I shot in manual mode. My confidence is higher now and while I'm a beginner and have a lot to learn, I feel less intimidated by my camera. Thank you, Jay!
