Purpose: Challenging yourself

Jen Fawkes – Creating portfolios

In 2017 the Photographic Society of America introduced a new category of honours with a focus on portfolios. In 2018 I achieved my Bronze portfolio distinction (BPSA) with a portfolio titled “Challenging Perceptions” and in 2019 achieved my Silver Portfolio Distinction (SPSA) with a portfolio titled “Once there were people’.

This presentation will discuss the process, rules, requirements and the images that were part of my application for portfolio distinctions.

 

Purpose: A photographic report

Helen Warnod – Educational partnerships

The sharing of professional expertise internationally leads to an amazing opportunity to experience educational, and cultural marvels, both in and behind the scenes, in Delhi and Northern India.

I chose to produce a photographic rather than a written report.

Trace will talk about the Conceptual Art Portfolio Awards [CAPA] program through the Australian Photographic Society (APS). She will share her Bronze portfolio, the process, her artist statement and the images.

 

Purpose: Photographic memorabilia & new technologies

John Noble – Before and after

During the second lockdown John been going through his old 35mm colour film negatives and rescanning with a more up-to-date scanner. Lots of memories and some surprising images were restored using newer technologies.

This video offers some experiences with film scanning and offers a quick view of some of the images.

 

Purpose: Profiling your work

Dave Sumner – About Dave’s photography

Dave is a photography judge and he provides judging services via correspondence for clubs that are remote and find it hard to get judges out to their clubs.

Because he doesn’t physically visit the club in person, he provides the club with a slideshow of his work which they play on the night. Dave presents one of those slideshows.
