    Open Paint – Minimalism Photography – Lighting in Photography

    10am - 3pm BVAA Alternatives Uxbridge Community Gallery 5 South Main Street Uxbridge, MA 01569

    If you’re interested in photography, painting, drawing, and illustrating, we have the perfect Saturday lined up! It’ll be a great time with laughter, conversation, creativity, and the space to stretch out!

    There are three components to our Saturday of events.

    Open Paint 10am-3pm
    First, for the entire day, it’s an open paint! All are welcome, including the public, family, and friends! It’s free! If the main room gets busy with photography, we have the back conference room dedicated for the painters. We have watercolors and acrylics on hand, or bring your own if you wish.

    Minimalism Photography 10am-noon
    Sometimes less is more. The simpler the image, the more you focus on each aspect on it. Just how minimalist can you go? How much can you reduce an image by and still maintain meaning?

    Lighting in Photography 1-3pm
    The use of light is absolutely key in photography. If you took a photo in a pitch dark room the photo would be black. Just how does light impact the image? How do shadows and highlights enhance the subject?

    If the weather is nice out, visitors can also embark on an Uxbridge sketch walk. We have the maps all ready.

    Long Exposure Photography 10am-noon
    Setting your time setting to a longer period lets the scene flow in front of the camera. You can get shimmering waterfalls and long streaks from car lights. What else happens when you play with that T setting on your camera?

    Macro Photography 1-3pm
    You’ll want to bring a macro lens for this one! We’ll have a clip-on one to share for cellphones. Macro photography can be amazingly fun. Experiment with us!
