APC September Meeting – “Vision Beyond Seeing” with Don Komarechka

The start of the 2015/2016 APC season is just around the corner, and we are excited to have Don Komarechka returning to the APC. As many of our current members will remember, Don wowed us with his Marco presentation last February and we are sure to be wowed by his new presentation “Vision Beyond Seeing”.

Date: Tuesday September 22, 2015
Ajax Community Centre – HMS Room
Doors open at 6:30 PM

“Vision Beyond Seeing” is a presentation that aims to close the gap between how we see the world and how a camera captures an image. The differences are vast, and we don’t perceive the world in terms of focal length, shutter speed, dynamic range or many other “camera terms” when we enjoy beautiful scenery. The camera sees things much different than us, so how do we capture an image that represents the scene as we see it?

There are techniques to make an image look very similar to the way we remember it, and there are techniques to present images that we could never imagine seeing with our own eyes. Each has their value, but creativity reigns supreme.

This presentation will try to answer a few difficult questions – what is creativity and how do I find it, and how do I think outside the box? How do I make something new and interesting, and how do I use the camera as extension of my own vision? How and why would I want to previsualize a scene, and what happens when I don’t get the results I expect? There will be many tangents. The material will be entertaining. You’ll leave with countless new ideas and the inspiration to execute them.
