For the last 9 years we have worked together as an artistic team producing interdisciplinary pieces, and projects. Our presentation will focus on the intimate connection between play and study in our creative process, and the ways we utilize photography as a method of capture and documentation.

About Anna Gray + Ryan Wilson Paulsen
Anna Gray + Ryan Wilson Paulsen are two people who work together as one artist. They use art as an extended form of study and a testing ground for ideas about language and the grammar of the social. Their pieces and projects have appeared in (and out) of institutions such as The Renaissance Society, The San Diego Museum of Art, Locust Projects, and on the pages of NOON Literary Annual. They live in Portland, Oregon, where they teach in the School of Art & Design at Portland State University and raise their 5-year-old son. They are represented by PDX Contemporary Art.

Creative Camera Techniques: Stirring your artistic edge

Creative Camera Techniques

When: Saturday, July 25, 2015
Time: 9:30am to 4:30pm
Where: Pro Photo Supply Event Center - 1801 NW Northrup Street, Portland, OR 97209
Cost: $129, registration required.

Join us as we explore some of the artistic and creative elements in photographic expression.

Panning: Panning is the horizontal movement of a camera as it scans a moving subject. Proper panning implies motion, creating the feeling of motion and speed without blurring the subject.

Zoom Blur: Tired of the same old shots? Want to add a cool in-camera effect without post processing? Try some zoom blur. Break the traditional mold and take some creative photos that produce unique results.

Rotation Blur: This is an alternative to the traditional zoom blur, and produces some very creative results.

Multiple Exposure: Multiple exposure is a technique where the camera blends several images into one. This technique can be used as an artistic visual effect and can be used to make ghostly images or to add people, texture, depth and objects to a scene.

This workshop will focus on these four artistic elements of photography. It is intended for all skill levels. We will start the workshop in the classroom where we will present detailed information on the workshop materials. We will then break for lunch and head out into the field for hands-on shooting, help and instruction.

Attendees will be responsible for their own meals and transportation.

Recommended equipment:

  • Camera with manual controls
  • Tripod or monopod
  • Zoom lenses varying from wide to medium focal length.
  • Rain gear for you and your camera (just in case)
  • Camera manual (optional)

Instructors: Gregg Kerber and Craig Clark

2 day lighting seminar with Kevin Focht

Creative Camera Techniques

When: July 25 & 26, 2015
Where: 55 SE Main St, Portland OR 97214
Cost: Early bird - $425; General $500

We will be covering lighting ( both inside and out), posing, as well as how to talk and deal with models, how to plan a fashion shoot, how to get everyone on the same page, and how to post process those images to create the maximum wow factor. This is a complete hands on seminar, starting with the first session. I want everyone to bring their top 10 images, so I can get a feel for who you are as a photographer. I will also be covering goal setting and planning, so when you leave this seminar you will have a clear vision of what direction to go. There is no point teaching you anything, if you don't have a road map to follow. Be prepared to work and to have your work critiqued, this will be a brutally honest seminar. I guarantee that!

Instructors: Kevin Focht
