Projector Photography Night September 28 September 2022

Help us by providing images for the evening, please!

Projector Photography

PROJECTOR PHOTOGRAPHY involves projecting an image onto a background, a person, or another object for artistic effect. And, in a first for the club, Hedon Viewfinders is going to experiment with the techniques at our Wednesday 28 September meet-up.

We’ll have two projectors available which we’ll use as mobile light sources. We are asking club members to help us by providing images that would make for a striking effect when projected. Colourful artwork or patterned images would work well but consider the effect that your images might have when projected onto a face, body, object, or surface. You might choose to create your own images especially customised for the night. Email your images to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk by 6pm Tuesday 27 September.

By working with other club members, you might be able to design some themes that might work on the night; vintage, sci-fi, fashion, etc. These themes might then suggest props and costumes that might enhance the photo shoot.

It looks like it will be a fun night with everybody able to take some very different photos.
