Erik Gehring, A boy and his dog

Sunday, July 26, 3-3:45pm
iPhonography with Erik Gehring

iPhonography has quickly become an art form unto itself.  This demo will go through some of the myriad features and apps that will help you explore your artistic vision with this 21st century device, and create instantaneous, spontaneous art that was simply not possible ten years ago. Erik will focus on the innovative and often hidden features of the iPhone itself, like Live, HDR, Time Lapse, and Portrait modes. Erik Gehring is a freelance photographer who specializes in trees and natural landscapes.  He is the current Programming Coordinator at the Hyde Park Art Association, and he is a past President of the Boston Camera Club. His work has appeared in Yankee Magazine, AMC’s Outdoors, Northern Woodlands, the Boston Globe, the Boston Metro, the Cape Cod Times, E the Environmental Magazine, and other publications, and he has exhibited his fine art prints at galleries throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.

Past Sunday Studio Demos:

Photographer and writer, Suzanne RevySunday, June 14, 3-3:45pm
Studio Demo with Suzanne Révy, sequencing photographs

A tight edit and a visual cohesive sequence can elevate a portfolio.
Looking at your work with an objective eye is difficult, and you have to be willing at times to reject some of your favorites in order to strengthen a portfolio.

On June 14th Révy pared down a large selection of images, and created a sequence allowing participants to see first hand how visual decisions are made in the process.
