“Land and Seascapes: themes and projects”  Tony and Eva Worobiec

Tony and Eva Worobiec really don’t need a long introduction from me (Wendy North) as they are so well known in the world of photography.  Perhaps you have attended one of their talks, workshops or have read one of their books.  We are so pleased that they are coming to help us launch the October conference of the Yorkshire and North East Digital Image Group and also that they will visit themes `old and new’ during the course of the day.

In a  lot of camera club work, the 'single image is celebrated over developing a personal project’ (Eva Worobiec) yet, for those of us working towards an RPS Distinction, identifying and pursuing our  `personal projects’ are essential to achieving our goals.  During this day, Tony and Eva will share their projects, which include: `Landscape Whatever the Weather’, `Abandoned America’ and their newest projects `Coast’ and `The Water’s Edge’.

“Photographing Landscape Whatever the Weather”. Tony Worobiec

Tony’s presentation will offer many suggestions from `learning to embrace all conceivable weather conditions;  familiarising yourself with your immediate environment as often the best weather shots are taken close to home; which lenses, filters and shutter speeds are most appropriate for specific conditions’.

“Abandoned America” Eva Worobiec

What Eva aims to discuss is that, in a culture where the single image is celebrated over developing a personal project, engaging with the latter makes it much easier to get  representation in serious photographic galleries, and also to have your work published.

The skills that Eva intends to cover include:  `the importance of research; the problems of photographing in confined and dark spaces; the importance of weather and lighting for conveying mood’.

“Coast” and “The Water’s Edge” Eva and Tony Worobiec

Both Eva and Tony have a passion for photographing the coast, which has resulted in two publications.  During this session they want to share their approach to looking for locations that could have a romantic or industrial appeal; talk about the importance of a `minimal approach’; and returning to a previous theme, `consider the importance of weather and tide and how these will impact on the final image’.

Both Tony and Eva have personal websites where you can view their portfolios and read their personal biographies:
