Photographer Steve Lingeman will address the Tidewater Camera Club on Monday, December 4th, 2017 from 7 to 9 PM in the Talbot County Community Center’s Wye Oak Room. The Public is invited to attend.
Mr. Lingeman’s talk is entitled – “Creating your own Personal Project”. Photographers and artists who have a desire to extend their collection of individual images into a unified collection will be interested in this presentation. Mr. Lingeman will cover a range of topics such as the preliminary work of assembling and curating images into a group, sequencing the images and creating a text of the story.”
The presentation will cover various ways of presenting the photographer’s or artist’s work in printed form including self-printed publications or portfolios of images within a formal box. He will give advice regarding sending images to an outside internet style company for printing. A number of examples of Mr. Lingeman’s personal projects will be shown, including several projects he assembled, curated and printed for other photographers and artists. Additional topics to be covered are the use of Photoshop to create such a self-printed publication, and the use of typefaces and layout. Binding and the selection of a cover will also be addressed.
Mr. Lingeman has been a photographer since the 1960’s. Before moving to Easton several years ago, Mr. Lingeman was a large format printer for other photographers and artists in Westchester County, New York, utilizing large inkjet printers up to 64” wide. He developed a stretcher bar system for stretching photographs and art reproductions. That system is still used by several photographers here in Talbot County.In the past year Mr. Lingeman has printed the first two issues of “The Photographic MEGAZINE.” The first one featured landscape photographs that he captured in Iceland while traveling the “Ring Road”, an 880-mile highway that encircles the country. The issue tells the story of that trip in fine art photos and text. The second issue, titled: “Form and Texture” is a collection of Mr. Lingeman’s images dating back to the dawn of digital photography in year 2000 and others that were captured using Kodak film.
Founded in 1963, the Tidewater Camera Club strives to promote interest and participation in photography for all skill levels and ages. For more information, go to www.tidewatercameraclub.org.
