"He says art is about solving challenges in your medium, and beautiful pictures are only the byproduct."

 

This may be one of the single most useful precepts I learned from one of my photography teachers.

Do you have any specific examples or when you put this to use?

generic nyc skyline sunset looking over at new jersey with ever-present construction. the only thing i like about this (well, the colors are nice) is that there's a hidden detail i didn't notice at first, and that's the silhouette of the plane off in the distance but when cropped looks like a nuclear blast almost smile.gif

Any of you go/gone to school for photo? I'm finishing up my undergrad with a degree I regret and wasn't happy with and am thinking about applying to a couple of graduate programs for next year.

I did a couple of undergrad units in B&W photography though the design school connected to the Uni where I did my Communications degree. It was all workshop/practical based. I was lucky the lecturers were established professional art based photographers who were held in high standing and represented in the NSWAG and the NGA. I learnt a lot about process but most importantly about images and framing. They were focused entirely on the image how you get it, what are you trying to say with it and composition and aesthetics from a practical image making process, didn't do much theory.

Ten years later I did a Masters in Visual Anthropology and that was primarily focused on the 'image' and the theory was post visual turn, images are not texts. I found it stimulating and still use some of the theory and ideas. Was lucky with the lecturers as they were both recognised as being leaders both from a visual and theory perspective in the discipline of Visual Anthropology. Did a fair bit of digital film making and photography as part of the coursework.

Guess it depends on the focus of the school, e.g. are they studio based or street art focused and what sort of theoretical ideas their pushing. Most importantly the quality of the staff, what are their skill sets and standing in both the academic and art community. Overall what you want to get out of the program and how it will advance your skills. I taught digital photography to first year media students in 1998 we all used a Sony Digital Mavica MVC-FD51 with a floppy disc inserted. (shudders)

I learned how to print colour from negs recently.

 

It's great! Unfortunately there aren't that many places in Australia (maybe 2-3) that I can do what I did in London, which is disappointing.

There is a facility/gallery in Kingston which you should checkout once you get to Canberra.

Awesome - there are also facilities at ANU so I might take a continuing education course there to get access there, price isn't too bad, but timing might be terrible.

A quick snap from the Magritte Museum in Bruxelles:

Very cool @eglbc and @Kaplan

 

It was "culture night" in Copenhagen tonight, where museums and lots of other institutions do something special. I snapped a few photos. Unfortunately I had to use high ISO for many since the lighting conditions were often very dark/poor. 

 

First from Thorvaldsen's museum; they added spot lighting to the sculptures and rooms. Neat.

 

 

And a few from the collection of the SMK museum with sculpture casts. There was a fashion event too.
