“Through the Eyes of JoAnne Kalish: Photographer and Visual Communicator” Exhibit Oct.10 – Dec. 7 Columns Museum

My work is on exhibit at the Columns Museum in Milford, PA. October 10th through December 7, 2014.

The Show will also be during the time of the Black Bear Film Festival

It is the same Museum that has in their collection, the blood-stained Lincoln Flag from the Ford’s Theatre in Washington.

– On a history note, JoAnne was the only photographer at the Long Beach Grand Prix who captured the famous motor series at the start of the Long Beach Grand Prix of near fatal accident with Mario Andretti and James Hunt. Sports Illustrated ran the photo twice that year, the second time was for “The Year in Sports” issue.

The Tragedy of September 2001 will never be forgotten with her photograph of a Prayer Vigil, which has been recognized as one of the greatest tributes to the American Spirit.  Quote from Charlie Borst, Director of Photography at Corbis Sigma USA – “ I must say that from all the pictures I’ve edited of this tragedy, this quickly rises to the top.”

JoAnne’s iconic photograph of Artist Will Barnet, awarded the medal of Arts by President Obama in 2012, is now part of the Permanent Collection of Portraits, in The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, as well as is being part of the photographic collection in the White House.

Other personal work is on display as well.  PLEASE COME DOWN AND SUPPORT THE ARTS.

Portraiture

Things to know when Making a portrait –

Photograph the person with a portrait lens and with minimum depth of field, unless of course, you’re doing an environmental portrait.  Make your subject feel comfortable and relaxed by talking to them and telling them what you would like to do.  If it’s a formal portrait in the studio, make sure your lights are all set up.  Your camera should be set to the right exposure beforehand, as well as knowing where you stool will be placed if you are using one etc.  Have the person sit with one shoulder a little more towards you instead of straight on as it’s much more flattering. When you are making these portraits keep shooting and show the person a photo or two so they become more involved in the process. Always suggest to the person that they wear something they feel comfortable in.  Layers of clothing are nice for both men and women as it adds interest.  I personally like soft feminine and flattering necklines as well for women.  If they wear glasses either ask them to remove them or place the glasses a little lower on the bridge of their nose so as not to see the reflection of the lights (you might have to move your lights.)  Remember most women need softer lighting as it’s more flattering.  When photographing in available light and on-the-fly you need to quickly come up with an interesting and appropriate background which will not detract from the person. Obviously if it’s an environmental portrait you may want to use the person’s workspace or living space to tell something about the person.  If you can, try to have more than one idea where to place the person and move them around.  Again more times than not, this relaxes the person and puts them more at ease, knowing you know what you’re doing.
