Education & Training
February 8th, 2011 - Workshop : Appreciating Abstracts
Please join us for a passionate presentation on the art of Visual Design as it relates to creating intriguing abstract photographs.  Joseph Miller will present images and explain how the building blocks of visual design affect our impressions and perceptions of a given image.  Believing that abstract photography is the free verse of photography, Mr. Miller looks for the balance, distribution and harmony of the color, tone, lines, shapes and patterns within the picture space.  Come prepared to forget about the need for a subject in your photography.

Mr. Miller is a prolific writer and frequent speaker and judge for most of the camera clubs in the Northern Virginia area.  He has authored or co-authored no less than twelve of the NVACC handbooks on photography, teaches workshops relating to photographic techniques and has trained numerous judges in the area.  He is a mentor for many of us in the club and has taught us to appreciate the 4 C's of Visual Communication, Craftsmanship, Composition, Creativity and Communication.
