Next Meeting: Thursday, September 24, 2020

 

Topic:Abstract Photography

Presenter: Don Rosenberger

 

By creative use of shutter speeds and camera motion we can create an entire new body of work. Abstract photography allows us to depart from reality and create works that are more expressive. We will examine the origins of this form of art and how we can incorporate this art form into our photography. 

Don Rosenberger Biography:

I’m just a guy who loves making images, but if you are curious read on to find out a little more about my story.

I started taking pictures in the mid to late 1970s as a teenager. I developed my own black and white film and really enjoyed photography, but never quite found my calling. By the time I was in my mid-twenties the expense of photography got to be too much and I stopped taking pictures. Several years later I sold all my cameras and lenses since I had not used them. During this dry period, I still had an appreciation for photography, but never felt compelled to pick up a camera.

By the time I was in my early forties, I started using digital photography for my day job and as the technology improved I started wondering if it was time to get back into photography. I first purchased a small handheld camera to see how it would go. I fell back in love with photography and the next step was to purchase a DSLR and some interchangeable lenses. This time around I was mostly drawn to landscape photography. I say mostly because I attended a flash workshop that Penn Camera hosted for Nikon Pro Joe McNally. Joe’s work was so amazing and while I continued to focus on landscape photography, I still maintained a distant desire to make images of people.

I joined a couple of camera clubs, meeting a lot of amazing photographers along the way. Some of whom I still consider mentors today.

What has been my driving passion since picking up a DSLR was the desire to improve my craft. You could call this passion, but it’s more than that. I’m always interested in how to elevate the quality of my work and I believe if this ever stops, I’ll stop growing as an artist.
