KSCCC is pleased to announce that Richard Martin will be giving a presentation entitled “Virtual Rhythm: Lines and Curves” on Friday, November 5th, 2021.
Richard Martin is a long-time contributor to Photo Life magazine and pursues photography as a medium of visual expression. He is best known for his unique vision with a personal style characterized by a strong sense of composition, colour, and the use of light. His work combines an architectural love of geometry, pattern and texture with a painter’s sensitivity to the creative art of executing aesthetic. Richard inspires participants with his photography and visual design workshops, tours, and seminars around the world.
“My photography is a celebration of the visual world. It originates straight from the heart, honest and direct. Inspired by colour, texture and light, I make photographs to express feelings surrounding my experiences, searching for visual equivalents to those feelings.”
The shape of a line and its orientation or direction within the picture space evokes certain emotional responses among viewers. This presentation will examine the visual language of lines from straight to the sensuous qualities of curved lines. Examine the visual impact that length, position and direction can have on the expressive possibilities established in the final image.
