Presenter is Darren Cole
Our very own Darren Cole is conducting a workshop on Human Interest; how it differs from the other categories; and what makes a good Human Interest picture.
Darren started his journey into photography less than 3 years ago, but quickly fell in love with it. Darren has received numerous acknowledgements for his Human Interest pictures in S4C and PSA Competitions.
This workshop will give you ideas, tips, and tricks on how to improve your Human Interest photos. The rules of Human Interest will be explained and examples provided to test your new knowledge. We will be expecting audience participation! Please join Darren on a journey as we explore the possibilities of Human Interest photography!
Please email Darren 2-3 Human interest pictures to share during the workshop and get feedback on. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org

October 18th, 2016 will be our Human Interest Competition. Please upload your entries by 10/11/16 11:59 P.M. Our competition will be judged by Diane Racey.
HUMAN INTEREST – Human Interest is defined as an image depicting a person or persons in an interactive, emotional or unusual situation, excluding recreational or organized sports action. Guidelines for Human Interest Images.
As with all reality-based divisions techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable modifications are removal of dust, scratches or digital noise, restoration of the existing appearance of the original scene, sharpening that is not obvious, and complete conversion to grayscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not eligible. All allowed adjustments must appear natural.
“Restoration of the appearance of the original scene” may include techniques such as HDR, focus stacking and dodging/burning provided they do not alter the contents of the original scene and the result looks natural. Borders are optional, but must be 3 or 4 pixels in width and must be white or a shade of grey.

The LPA will be celebrating a 50th Anniversary! lease join us as we take a step back in time, and recognize some of the historical moments of the LPA, and those who helped propel us 50 years forward. View those old B/W photos and stories of an era long gone as we step back in time, see what the AV Fair Photography exhibit looked like in the early 1970’s, learn a bit about the history of the LPA, and hear stories from past Presidents… those who had a vision for LPA’s future. Who knows… you too just might show up in some of the photos!
