Sedona AZ (February 6, 2020) – Professional photographer Pam Taylor will present at the Sedona Camera Club meeting beginning at 6 p.m. on Monday, February 24 at Christ Lutheran Church, 25 Chapel Rd, Sedona. Doors open at 5:30 a.m.
Pam Taylor is a widely published and traveled freelance editorial photographer who today focuses on photography as a creative art. She will kick off the meeting by highlighting her photographic odyssey as a young, untrained photojournalist documenting international conflicts in Central America. For decades she lived and traveled abroad to publish her work in newspapers, magazines and books. Closer to home, she has produced numerous social justice videos, as well as promotional videos for artists.
Several years ago, she discarded the documentary style to explore more artistic modes of shooting. She now plays with less traditional equipment such as infrared and underwater cameras, as well as artistic lenses. In rebellion against the photojournalism ethic of not altering a photograph, she now enjoys enhancing images using Photoshop and other digital programs.
After a break, Taylor will dive into an in-depth exploration of creativity. She will talk about creativity, inspiration and challenges. She will go over the craft of creative options while taking photos. And she will look for ways to playfully develop inspiration and vision. Taylor will take us behind the scenes of several photoshoots to show off her process. In addition, she will deconstruct in post-processing several photos to illustrate how she improves or creates new images. The effect is an inspiring rallying cry for photographers trying new experiences and new ways of shooting. www.pamtaylormultimedia.com
