    -----------------------------

    There are 2 workshops coming up.

    Shooting Thematically - 2-day workshop
    Sat 5 & Sun 6 September 2009
    9.30am – 12.30pm each day
    The Lab, level 3
    $80 per person (inclusive of materials)

    Thematic photography has been widely embraced by professional photographers from all over; it forces the photographer to think along the same line for an extended period of time, and this builds the photographer’s thinking and moulds his/her image-making skills. This workshop aims to demonstrate how a group of photographs can be used to emphasise a topic or concept; which is very different from the usual single picture that we are very much used to. The two different directions also bring about very different interpretations.

    The workshop will discuss more specifically on the ideology of landscape photography and will also delve into other subject matters that are of strong interest, and are able to hold the attention span of a viewer. These may include relations to historical influences, social issues, architecture, design structures, and so on.

    Participants will need to bring the following items:
    - A laptop
    - A digital camera

    Presenter: Chow Chee Yong has participated in more than 30 solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and the United States and currently teaches photography in the Department of Visual Communication at Temasek Design School in Temasek Polytechnic (Singapore).


    The Paper Camera Workshop
    Sat 5 & Sun 6 September 2009
    2pm – 5pm each day
    Seminar Rooms 1 & 2, level 2
    $50 per person (inclusive of materials)

    This two-day workshop provides an informative and interactive experience in understanding how pinhole photography works. This traditional way of making images creates a beautiful pictorial image quality, enabling practitioners to find an alternative means to create images that defies against the normal way of photographing with a camera. The workshop will first introduce the history of pinhole photography with examples from pinhole photographers, how a pinhole functions, the different types of pinhole cameras, and then the actual making of DIY pinhole camera. There will also be coaching on basic darkroom techniques during the process of experimentation with the pinhole camera. No prior knowledge in photography is required for this workshop.

    Participants will need to bring the following items:
    - A tripod stand (small to medium size)
    - An opaque container (preferably of metal and cardboard material)
    - A thumb drive

    Presenter: Tan Peiling has participated in various photography and fine arts groupshows in Singapore and Tokyo, Japan. She has been conducting photography workshops since mid 2008 and is currently pursuing an honors degree in photography in Nanyang Technological University,School of Art, Design and Media.

    Please note that only persons aged 15 years and above will be admitted to this workshop.
