As photographers we aspire to communicate our ideas clearly to a viewer, to draw them in and reward exploration. In this session Kris will discuss techniques you can use to visualise and plan your storytelling images, and some tools for evaluating your work in progress to ensure you capture and keep a viewer.

To help illustrate these concepts, we'll deep dive into some of Kris' illustrative work, sharing some of his successes and failures along the path to effective communication.

Still Life - A Paradox
HEATHER PRINCE

The term Still Life is a paradox that has been practised in visual representation from the beginning of human existence when men painted objects on cave walls. The great painters of the Renaissance took Still Life to the pinnacle of rich and romantic painting and were followed by artists of every movement up to the present day. I want to look at Still Life from the viewpoint of a photographer.

How does one reconcile ‘Still’ with ‘Life’? What does Still Life offer the photographer and the viewer? I will share some of my Still Life photographs from the last 10 years and talk about why I enjoy this genre of photography.
