Exploring the decisions we make to bring home the photography we aspire to take
“The photograph is the very expression of our inner voice bursting to get out.”
— Roxanne Bouché Overton
PROGRAM: “Think Before You Shoot”
The program talks about decisions we make to bring home the photography we aspire to take. And therein lies the heart of the program. If we don’t stop and consider the photograph we want to capture, we are doing little more than taking snapshots.
The program will explore all the elements to consider. It covers some basic rules and why you might want to break them. It covers decisions on how you might want to capture a specific shot depending on your reason for taking it. The presentation will cover different technique, framing choices, story evolution and being prepared.
These thoughts were originally gathered for exotic travel photography but they pertain equally for shots you might capture in your own backyard.
Roxanne Bouché Overton is a lifelong artist across many mediums including textiles, paints, stained glass and pottery. About 10 years ago she decided to embrace photography on a more exclusive basis – taking time to explore all of the potential her imagination could conjure.
She started, like most photographers, with a simple camera shooting family and postcard-pretty pictures. The cameras became more sophisticated and as she traveled the world, her subjects expanded. Her camera became a bridge to diverse cultures and environments; an entry into intimate relationships with other people and other lands. She ceased to become just an observer and became an equal partner in the experience.
