Robert Fields presented a lecture on “Movement and Motion” for our February assignment. He talked through a number of images showing how to incorporate movement and motion into your work by taking advantage of features like waves, or reducing the shutter speed so that things in motion, like a musician’s hands, can be blurred while their other features are still, or by using a longer lens that accentuates movement compared to a wide angle lens. He reminded us that all the other elements of composition remain important. Mr. Fields judged over 30 very interesting Open Images. First prize went to Dan Katz, second to Jerry Cowart and third to Sharon Sega

Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings
NOVEMBER 16, 2018 - FEBRUARY 10, 2019 AT THE GETTY CENTER
The first major international exhibition of the work of American photographer Sally Mann. The exhibition explores themes of family, memory, mortality, and the Southern landscape as repository of personal and collective memory. Experimental, melancholic, and hauntingly beautiful, Mann’s photographs – many not exhibited before – expose how her relationship with the land has shaped her work and how the legacy of the South continues to permeate American identity. Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts. Link: http://www.getty.edu/art/exhibitions/sally_mann/ index.html
