Les Walkling seminar: The Principles of Pictorial Design

This seminar concentrates on improving in-camera composition, image editing, and processing efficiency through a comprehensive exploration of the principles of pictorial design in Western art.

Paintings, drawings, photographs, constructed spaces, and writings are analysed, and design elements such as light, shade and shadow are orchestrated into powerful photographic solutions.

It focuses on finding subjects, creating personally interesting images, refining aesthetic choices, and working within a fine art tradition.

Topics include:

Les_Pilbara_S Images are composed of images – what does this mean?
• What are the four principles of image construction?
• Why are diagonals and corners so important?
• Drawing, tonal, colour and spatial compositions
• Saturation and brightness relationships
• Perspective: convergence, foreshortening, and diminution
• Light, shade and shadow
• Lines, curves, shapes, textures and direction
• Proportion, dominance, and contrast
• Unity, variety and selection
• Rhythm, harmony and balance
• Successive contrast and overlapping subjects

Les Walkling is a sought after artist, digital imaging specialist and speaker.

Opening night

After months of preparation and hard work we finally opened Wild Island ! The launch was packed and the feedback has been wonderful. Thanks for your support so far. We look forward to promoting Tasmania as the Wild Island.

Thank you to Luke O’Brien and Paul Hoelen for the photos.

Help us launch a stunning exhibition featuring Peter Dombrovskis’ seminal work

Peter Dombrovskis was foundational in Australian landscape photography. Peter gave us a superbly crafted view of wild places that is evocative yet intricately detailed. His work and its role in campaigns for Tasmania’s western wilderness set an international benchmark. He helped change the course of history and of lives.

It is fitting that the opening exhibition of the new Wild Island centre, at the location of the Wilderness Society shop at Salamanca in Hobart, should showcase Peter’s work as its opening exhibition.

We need a little help…

We need your help to make it a reality. Go over to our Pozible campaign to gather the final funds required to remaster, print and frame Peter’s iconic images.
