MAKE IT. OWN IT. LOVE IT.
— ABOUT —
FOR THE LOVE OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Despite living in an age when virtually everyone carries a camera of some description, the process of creating and owning photographic prints has taken second place to the short-lived glory of social media 'posts', 'shares' and 'likes'. It is a wonderful thing that pictures can now reach millions of people around the world, but with a constant stream of ever changing images it is all too easy to look without truly seeing. This project seeks to encourage people to think more deeply about the process of creating and/or enjoying the photographic image. It doesn't matter if you're using a phone or a DSLR, you CAN take better photographs. But taking photographs is just half of the story, we also want people to have more photographic prints on their walls (whether that's at home, at work or the place where they spend their leisure time), so the project will also introduce a new way to buy photographs so that everyone can enjoy the photographic print as an affordable work of art.
If you want to learn more about art and photography then why not attend our free workshops. Over the next couple of months we will show you how to go from taking snapshots to creating photographs. Our workshops will cover everything from composition and colour theory to editing and presentation. There will also be several specially themed workshops, hosted by local professional photographers, which will cover popular genres such as 'landscape', 'portraiture' and 'street photography'. The best pieces from each workshop will feature in the pages of the Doncopolitan magazine and the very best works from the overall project will be used to create a very special exhibition where your work could even be sold. It doesn't matter what equipment you have (or don't have), if you have a simple point and shoot or a phone with some kind of camera you have everything you need to get involved. So why not join us on our photographic adventure?
