Call For Entries: Abandoned

Abandoned is an exhibition exploring abandoned and rediscovered objects, spaces, and structures. A popular genre in the photographic world is the trend of urban exploration (“urbex”) — the exploration of abandoned or forgotten places to document the narrative of those who lived or worked there. Through the captured image, we can glimpse the ephemeral nature and memory of ourselves and our surroundings and preserve them before being lost to time and place. What do these structures and objects convey about society as we leave them to decay? What is the essence of time and place, and what-or whom-are we abandoning?

PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
When you are shooting in manual mode one of tools you can use to help set correct exposure is the camera meter in your camera. You can see it when you look through the viewfinder. This exposure tip will help you properly expose your photos. Cameras have an internal light meter that reads and analyzes the scene to determine whether your photo will be properly exposed based on the settings you choose. You can use the meter reading to determine if you need to make any changes to the aperture, shutter speed, or ISO to get proper exposure before you click the shutter. As you make adjustments to your settings, you will see the line on the camera meter move closer or farther away from the center of the meter (which is zero). This is what the camera meter looks like when you look through the viewfinder. The line below the meter will move to the right & left as you change your setting to indicate whether you are over or under exposing the photo. Graphic of what the meter on the back of camera will do when over, under, and properly exposed. This doesn’t mean that you always want the meter to be exactly at zero. Sometimes you will need to expose a little to the right or left to get correct exposure. This will depend on the light where you are shooting, the metering mode you are using (spot, evaluative, partial) as well as your artistic vision for the photo.
