tfttf569 – After Dark

flattr this!

Chris has spent the last three days at a photography event like no other. After Dark is a very relaxed and highly creative meet-up of several hundred participating photographers and several tens of professional photographers who act as mentors and work with the participants on all kinds of projects, from small flash on-location lighting, working with models, fashion photography, post production, big studio setups, marketing, business, photoshop, … you name it. The event takes place at different locations throughout the year, this time it was in Kansas City.

Chris catches some of the atmosphere of After Dark and talks with the founder of After Dark, David Junion, and with Brian DeMint, photographer and one of the mentors at the event.

    Apparently, Brian’s quote is not by Picasso but by Wilde, from “The Picture of Dorian Gray”:

    Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist,
    not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It
    is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who,
    on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.

    Thanks, anyway for pointing out that great concept.
