Larry Lourcey presents Growing as an Artist (The Power of Self-Assignments)

Larry Lourcey

First and foremost, Larry Lourcey is a portrait artist. Since earning his Bachelor of Arts in 1992, continuing education has always been a priority. Countless art classes and photography workshops have helped to mold his style and technique. His work encompasses a broad range of styles - from fun, whimsical black and whites to elegant, traditional portraiture. He is also a talented painter, with a rich style inspired by artists like Pina Daeni and John Singer Sargent. His work has been featured in everything from the ”Painter Wow“ books to the cover of Professional Photographer Magazine.

Program Overview

Larry will discuss Growing as an Artist (The Power of Self-Assignments)

As the digital revolution continues to blur the line between amateurs and pros, it is more important than ever for us to grow as artists. If you take your artistry to the next level, recognition of your work will follow. One of the best ways to do this is through self-assignments.

In this fun and educational program, Larry will show you how he has used self-assignments to take his photography to the next level. More importantly, he will show YOU how you can do it yourself. This is a can’t-miss program!

Snapshots! @ 6:15 pm

The April Snapshots! session, “Slide Show Creation,” by Lois Lehman and Ron Scaggs, will be at 6:15 pm, April 16, in the Library, just down the hall from the PPC meeting room.

At most club meetings, our video committee present slideshows of lovely images taken by PPC members at PPC activities. Now you can learn how to create your own slideshow so you can display your photographs of family, business, and community events. Lois and Ron will discuss two current programs (one is free), describe how to insert word slides, give suggestions on timing your slides with music, and explain how to download your slideshow onto DVDs/jump drives in order to play on TVs or computers.

Monthly Contest

The April contest is open for submissions. Submitted images may cover any subject or theme of the photographer’s choice. Entries must be uploaded to the PPC Competition Site before midnight April 30. Each club member may submit one image.

The maximum width for images submitted to the contest is 1400 pixels. The limit on the height of the image is 1050 pixels.
