April 3 Event: Eric Curry
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
West Hollywood, CA
LADIG welcomes back Eric Curry to our April 3 meeting at West Hollywood Park Hall. Eric going to present his series of photographs: “American Transmigration”. Eric literally paints with light to create his photographs. He says, "I am basically taking 25 years of technical special effects photographic knowledge and applying it to objects that we all take for granted in our daily lives. Not shooting images of new “toys” per se, but rather whole scenes of regular objects in their environment. Truly believing that beauty is all around us, we just have to look with a slightly different pair of colored glasses to see it. I’m hoping that the huge amount of energy I pour in to each and every work will help illuminate the inherent beauty in these otherwise average scenes.
With over 400 slides and dozens of anecdotal stories woven into a presentation, this is a wild ride of cutting edge photography, along with a true glimpse at the nobility of character embodied by the volunteers in these images."
This month LADIG also introduces a new Lightroom Spotlight feature. Daniel Sofer and Lee Varis share a photograph and show how they created it in Adobe Lightroom (and sometimes Photoshop), so you can learn more from the official Los Angeles Adobe Lightroom User Group. Greg Dyro will also show his latest Wacky Hacks. Our April event will be held at the West Hollywood Park Auditorium. Doors open at 6pm for some finger food and conversation, then we’ll get rolling around 7pm.
Parking is available at the new West Hollywood Public Library at 625 N. San Vicente Blvd., directly south of our meeting location.
