A monthly meeting for discussions about photography. Led by photographer, journalist, author and teacher, Paul Hill. Each session presents a different aspect within the field of photographic practice, and is relevant to image makers and enthusiasts from the region and beyond. This evening features talks and demonstrations relating to photography and 3D with guest speakers:
Ways of Seeing: by Ravi Purohit
An introduction to how we see 3D and the workings of the human eye and brain by Ravi Purohit. A passionate medical and creative photographer, Ravi has a BMedSci in Orthoptics, an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience and is working on a PhD in neuro ophthalmology specialising in nystagmus. His talk will explore the mechanisms behind the marvels of stereoscopic photography, where our eyes merge two images to virtually create the appearance of depth and apparent 3D. He will uncover the underlying neuroscience of the phenomenon of 3D, exposing the fascinating science of how and why it works.
Derby Museum Stereoscopic Photography Collection: Show and Tell
Expert staff from Derby Museum and Art Gallery will present some beautiful 3D stereoscopic images and viewers from the museum’s collection. Get hands on and learn more about the history of stereoscopy.
Each Photoforum includes the opportunity for you to show your own work too. We are calling this part of the evening ‘5x5’ when five participants will have five minutes to show their work. It’s a bit like speed dating with photographs. There will be 60 seconds for comment after each set, led by Paul Hill. For further information on 5x5 visit www.hillonphotography.tumblr.com
