We invite all members of the Sierra Club San Diego’s Photo Section to our October 2021 online meeting with photographic artist Judy Hancock Holland and her presentation on Minimalist Photography. Meeting date and time are at the end of this invitation. Please continue reading if you’re interested.
Minimalist photography involves seeing deeply into your subject. By allowing yourself to be captured by your subject, instead of the other way around, you can distill it down to its essence and present the image in a way that is uniquely yours. Join us to learn a new way to create images that convey not just what you see, but how you feel.
Judy Hancock Holland is a photographic artist whose work focuses on themes such as aging, healing, femininity, death and dying, peace and passion, and spirituality and sensuality. Her experience of aging and widowhood and her sense of the sacredness of Creation inform how she sees and portrays her simple subjects.
A lifelong learner and educator, Judy has won a number of medals from the Canadian Association for Photographic Arts, been published in PhotoNews Canada, and was awarded honourable mentions in the 15th and 16th Julia Margaret Cameron international photography competitions and 2021 Minimalist Photography Awards, and has been shortlisted in the 2021 Closeup Photographer of the Year international competition. Her YouTube tutorials have garnered over 150,000 views.
Here are a few example photos from the presentation:
After the main presentation, we’ll take a short break before we continue with our MemberShare.
Photos don’t have to be recent. SEND YOUR BEST PHOTOGRAPHS. For example, create a small series of five favorite images or a project, and share with others what your photographic interests are about.
Here’s a quick reminder of the guidelines and procedure:
- Send up to five photos via Dropbox file request.
- Check our guide on image sizes, JPEG quality, file naming, metadata
- Prepare to speak no more than 10-20 seconds on each photo
- We expect technically solid photographic work
- Deadline for MemberShare submissions: Friday, October 15, 6pm
- Nameplates: feel free to include a vertical orientation headshot with your photos
To submit your images, simply click this button:
If you need help or if there’s anything unclear about this procedure, the Dropbox help article on file requests contains everything you need to know.
NOTE: Your photos are only shown during MemberShare and will be deleted afterwards. We do not keep copies. There is no need to watermark your photos. If you feel that you must add a logo or other overlay, please keep it small and unobtrusive.
When the MemberShare is especially popular, we may have to reduce the amount of images from each member. If that happens we will announce it before MemberShare begins, and hope for your understanding.
