Watermark Art Center welcomes photographer Lowell Wolff for a Special Artist Presentation: “Artistry through the Lens” on Thursday, September 16 from 6 to 7:30pm. Wolff will discuss his perspective on the difference between “taking” and “making” a photograph. When shooting, he begins with the intention to use artistic elements in the creation of an image that is far more nuanced than simply “taking” a photo to capture the subject. Applying visual arts elements such as lighting, patterns, leading lines, shapes, textures and composition, Wolff uses the tools of the camera: fast/slow shutter speed, deep/shallow depth-of view, to create his final image. Doors open at 5:30pm, talk begins at 6pm with Q & A to follow. This is a free event. Registration is not required.
Wolff’s exhibit, “Reflections of Northern Minnesota”, is currently on display at Watermark in the Lakeview Gallery through September 25.
