APSCON 2018 Triptych Print Exhibition Information

A Triptych Print Exhibition is being held at APSCON 2018. A triptych is a set of three associated works, intended to be appreciated together and displayed on one common background, as one single image. Together the images MUST tell a story.

APS members are invited to submit two works. Each triptych will have three images, in landscape format, with the background measurements being 483mm x 329mm. These images will not be matted and will be attached to the fabric backed display boards with Velcro dots or pins, so please leave a border on your work. Once you are satisfied with your work, please flatten your one submission, and send the file like that. If you are submitting 2 works then both will be flattened before sending.

Triptych Instructions:

1. Subject: Open - must tell a story.
2. Definition: 3 images on one background that tell a story.
3. The triptychs will be professionally printed by “Living Image” in Brisbane.  www.livingimageprint.wordpress.com
4. Limit of 2 triptychs per person
5. Total Cost: $27.50 per print. $20 per print, $7.50 test prints and express postage.
6. Living Image will store all the prints until they are picked up by the committee prior to APSCON.
7. Paper stock used: Subtle Satin (white)
8. Size A3+ (483mm x 329mm) Landscape format
9. Leave a 25mm white border inside that area although they can print to the edges. HOWEVER, the prints will be pinned to a board so you need a white area (the prints will not be matted.)
10. The size of your final image must fit within the A3+.

Process:

1. Send an email of your intent to submit to: printing@darrenjew.com
2. You will receive an invoice and further information.
3. Pay for the printing via the invoice details.
4. A small test photo of your triptych will be posted to you.
5. You will need to confirm if the print is acceptable or not.
6. The triptych will then be printed, and stored at Living Image until print exhibition organisers pick them all up together.
7. The Best option 16bit AdobeRGB TIFF file 300dpi at the print size, no layers, no extra channels, no compression (these are very big files and it’s suggested to use Dropbox or a similar service to send these). Almost as good, but much easier to send sRGB JPEG file 300dpi at the print size.
8. The latest you can send your triptychs is the 10th August.

Example of your artboard size.

Below, are some examples of how your images could be arranged to tell the story that you are conveying. The blue background represents the complete file and the white areas represent the images. The background can be any colour that you think suits your images.

This year the convention will be held on the Gold Coast Queensland at the Home of the Arts (HOTA), formerly known as the Arts Centre Gold Coast, 135 Bundall Road, Surfers Paradise Queensland. We are very excited to deliver such a interesting and diverse program. Please visit our other pages for detailed information about presenters, program, workshops and tours.

 

THE VENUE

  • High quality sound equipment
  • Comfortable seating
  • Large break out areas
  • In-house lunch cart
  • Lift and ramps
  • Away from external distractions but close to good accommodation

 

THE THEME

Photographic Art – a new concept?

  • Program has a high conceptual content
  • A move away from competitions to exhibitions
  • Encompassing new technologies
  • A virtual speaker from the USA
  • A nature speaker from NZ
  • Caring for nature in the city flavour

 

APSCON has historically been a very social event where APS members got to meet each other and create everlasting friendships.  For many of the delegates, it has been a yearly expedition to enjoy their love for  photography and reunite with friends as they include APSCON into their yearly social itinerary.

Initially the Annual Awards dinner was the only organised social event, but with the ever growing need for members to enjoy a meal together, to share stories and good times, the introduction of the Social Dinner was an approriate addition. This event proved to be one of the most loved social events at ASPCON.

Last year, we tried something new, we have included a State Social Dinner with the view to include the presence of the State Photographic Federations into the APS world. It was a big sucess so we will do it again this year.

There were many highlights during APSCON 2012. Analysis of the surveys returned by delegates reveals that for most of them the two presentations by Robyn Beeche were certainly at the top of their lists of things they considered to be the best sessions. There is no doubt whatsoever that Robyn was a highlight. The high numbers of people that took opportunities to speak privately with her during the week and the percentage that scored both her sessions 10 out of 10 clearly demonstrate that. Robyn’s first presentation was about her fashion photography in 1980s London, whilst her second (very different) presentation was about her documentary photography in India, especially relating to the Holi festival. Robyn’s invitation to Brian Rope to put together a tour for a small group of members to visit India in early 2014 and stay at the ashram where she lives saw sixteen people rush to add their names to a list of interested persons.

Natasha Egan’s one-on-one personal portfolio critiques with a fortunate ten APSCONeers was certainly a highlight for those people. One of them described it as the best experience she had ever had at an APSCON - high praise indeed from someone who has attended many previous APSCONs.

Phil McFadden’s presentation, High Dynamic Range without “HDR”, also rated very highly, with many delegates overjoyed to hear a most instructive session. One survey respondent described the presentation as “well thought out, very instructional, well delivered, brilliant”. Raoul Slater, Margot Manchester and Gerard Saide also earned high praise for their presentations. The word “inspiring” was used to describe each of them more than once. Each of those presentations would have been a highlight for various delegates.

Another definite highlight was the first-time use of large screen LCD TVs to display numerous digital images programs throughout the week. The programs changed daily so there was always something new to see. Together with the well lit and presented print exhibitions they made up a feast of photography for viewing.

The panel discussion about the Society’s past was a highlight for the many who thoroughly enjoyed the reminisences, particularly by two of our Foundation Members, Graham Burstow and Bill Smit. Particularly for our members who have been part of APS for many years, the recognition given to Past Presidents, Foundation Members and Honorary Life members was greatly appreciated. Screening images from the 1st APS National and from the Society’s permanent Collection added to the recognition of our past.

The behind the scenes tour of the National Gallery of Australia’s photography collections area was a very special highlight for those who found themselves in very close proximity to original prints made by some famous photographers who they have long admired. It was something they never thought they would experience.

Of the outings that were offered the highlight for most was the trip to Strathnairn Homestead and gallery, where a special exhibition by members of the Canberra Photographic Society and entertainment by two singing groups was enjoyed. Many photographs were taken of the performers and a range of models, as well as of the numerous things to be found around the extensive property.

The Dance City dancers at the opening/welcome session was another highlight for many, whether it was the opportunity to photograph good dancers or simply to enjoy their performances.

For many of those attending their first ever APSCON, the highlight was simply being there and soaking it all up as they made friends and learned so much about what this Society is all about.

Of course, for the winner of the 50th anniversary participation prize and the winners of raffle prizes involving overseas photographic tours provided by the major sponsor, UDesign PhotoTours, their wins, no doubt, were also highlights.

And, of course, for others receiving their photographic skill or service honours and awards at the 50th anniversary Society dinner would have been a particular highlight. The grand venue, Gandel Hall at the National Gallery of Australia, and the fine food and beverages package just added to the occasion.

Finally, the quality handling of the audiovisuals for all presentations by the highly experienced pair of Brad King and Peter Edwards and the excellent organisation by the APSCON Committee is also worthy of the tag “highlight”.

Dylan Toh & Marianne LimDylanMarianne2

Saturday: 11:30am – 12:30pm
Presenting: The Power of Light & Vision

Workshop 3: Landscape Photography - Theory to Practice

www.everlookphotography.com

Everlook Photography is made up of husband and wife team, Dylan Toh and Marianne Lim, who use photography to escape the routines of the working week.  They hope to convey a sense of awe and appreciation through their images, which are a reflection of how, and what, they see. The ability to do such a thing is wholly individualistic, and the essential reality of a scene - a rock, a river, a mountain - is combined with their interpretation of it; the colours of the water, the reflection of light in the sky. Dylan's habit of early rising means the trademark lighting in his images comes mostly from the hues of dawn, while his penchant for a physical challenge sees him capturing scenes that are off the beaten track. 

Marianne became interested in photography primarily to take better reference images for her artwork, which then developed into a separate artistic interest. Unlike Dylan, Marianne prefers to remain asleep as the day dawns, usually photographing at sunset instead.

APSCON 2017 Image competition – Digital Files Entries close 30th April 2018

This competition, now in its 37th year, is to encourage conventioneers to display photographs taken at the previous APSCON for the interest of all members and to assist in publicising APSCON.

This section is confined to photographs of conventioneers and any people assisting in organising, entertaining, performing official duties and the like.

Presenting: Travel & Tours

Damian Caniglia is a Gold Coast based Photographer and Multimedia Producer and graduate of the Queensland College of Art who has had images and multimedia projects awarded at a state and national level, is a qualified trainer and is committed to helping others get the most from their cameras while travelling and at home.

Damian has guided photography groups and worked on film projects from the jungles of Papua New Guinea to the Nepalese Himalaya as well as the Arctic and Antarctic Regions. His main focus is on returning with images from travelling that speak of the people and places he visits, as well as helping those he travels with to get the most out of using their cameras to document their own travels.

Damian's images have been used in many publications including Australian Geographic, Lonely Planet, Rock Climbing Magazine, Inside Sport, The Australian Gourmet Traveller and the front cover of 'The Architect of Kokoda'. While back home he predominantly works producing film and photographic content through story telling projects connected with the community and environment sectors. Aside from various personal projects, he works for peak NGO and Not for Profit organisations who fund and facilitate major projects for communities and groups needing support.

Damian will present an informative/interactive session on "Making Videos with your DLSR or mirrorless camera" and a more formal presentation on travelling the world with a camera.

Travel Photography - A sense of Place and Experience
There have never been more opportunities to travel to far off, often wild destinations and share images with a wider audience. For my presentation I hope to share insight into how I capture images that give a deeper understanding of the experience of travel, how to work efficiently no matter what environment so as to be sure to come home with the images you set out to achieve, how to create more immersive imagery of the places and people we visit, and how I strive to help communicate a sense of place and understanding through images and motion.

Saturday:  3:30pm - 5:00pm
Workshop:  Architecturual Art & Photography

 

Robert is a retired architect resident in Adelaide. He has been interested in photography since childhood and decided that photography would be his retirement activity. With that in mind he joined Eastern Suburbs Camera Club and the Australian Photographic Society in 2007.

His photography was sidelined to some degree by his involvement in the APS holding a number of positions including chair of Digital Group, member of the APS Management Committee and member of the Adelaide APSCON organising committee. He also held various positions on Eastern Suburbs committee including President. Currently he is chair of the APS Social Media Sub-committee.Contemporary architecture and landscape are his principal photographic interests.

In terms of architectural work, Robert has always been interested in making 'portraits' of notable buildings but also enjoys creating conceptual interpretations. In these he seeks simplified, sometimes minimalist, compositions made strong by use of line, form, pattern and vibrant colour. He sees these interpretive works as art images rather than straight photographs.

His monochrome images recall the heritage of mid 20th century modernist photographers who utilised black and white to enhance the sculptural nature of architectural subjects.

Workshop: Intro to Action/Sports Photography

 

"I have a love for action, I call it my natural high. I get such a buzz from capturing that split second of fast action. The faster the speed, the more I love it. A follow on from birds where fast shutter speeds were needed, I now have a pet photography business photographing mainly dog sports including national events in agility and disc, plus beach/park action for personal sessions. My other work is in my studio where I can slow down with portraiture work.

Every two years the Pan Pacific Masters come to the Gold Coast, and for the last 3 times, I have had the pleasure to photograph several sports at this event, with some images gaining awards. In-between have been several other sporting events like dragon boats and tennis. There are many sports still that I would love to photograph.

I am a Canon user, and own way too much gear than what is good for me!"
