Monday, January 13 — Colby McLemore
Colby McLemore, one of our most dynamic presenters from 2013, will lead off our speaker series for the second year in a row. Colby is a successful and award-winning professional photographer from Knoxville.
Photography is a subtractive art form. Out of the entire world, photographers choose to focus though only a rectangle or square frame. This slice of life is autobiographical, reflecting what the artist thinks is important, his or her prejudices, or what he or she sees as beautiful. This seemingly small thing can be done thoughtfully to achieve the artist’s intent–no matter if that intent is to create a reflection of beauty, to capture a moment in time, or even to sell the viewer on a thought or dream. Come explore various means to achieve these ends, some you may have heard about but hopefully we’ll dive deeper to approach your art form in a fresh new way. Lofty goal, yep but let’s give it a whirl!
