Next Wine and Critique – an evening of peer review and fun — on March 20th
A day after Valentines Day, the CPC became a den of “Modern Love” – with photographers and models meeting up to create fashion portraits with an amorous touch. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the contemporary, classy fashion photography and couples portraits in the making that day. All photos by CPC’s Charles Osgood.
Congratulations to photographer Genevieve Elise Lee, winner of first prize at this month’s Wine & Critique event at CPC. The theme was “lens flare.”
The next W&C event will be March 20, and the contest theme is “diner.”
One monthly event at CPC stays true to every aspect of our mission: it builds community, fosters greater learning and inspires people to do better work. And — even better for those who imbibe — it also involves a hearty drink or two. Wine & Critique has been a fixture at the Center for several years now, and it’s popular for a reason: it’s great camaraderie with fellow photographers and it is, as the kids say these days, “hella fun.”
In January, part of that fun was playing with the “Larry Light,” a worklight that’s one of the products at www.batterygiantchicago.com. Dave Meyer of Battery Giant was the special guest that evening. He gave a presentation on batteries — from how they work to how best to care for them. This set of photographs shows W&C participants getting creative with the Larry Light flashlight.
The next Wine & Critique will be February 20th.
