Artist talks


DSCN9152

The Art Junction sponsors many events like artist talks.  The Art Junction was thrilled to have Amanda Kiplinger, local photographer from Polk, Ohio, speak and present her photographic work Buckeye Landscapes at the Art Junction. Amanda shared her passion and interest in photography, which began when she picked up her first camera at the age of twelve. Amanda states in her biography: “Growing up on a dairy farm in Ashland County gave me many opportunities to photograph landscapes, my favorite subject. While other teenagers were busy taking pictures of their friends making goofy faces, I was trying to imitate my favorite landscape photographer, Ansel Adams. Several years later I decided to make my love of photography into a profession.”  Maybe you can join us for a future event at the Art Junction!

A walk in the park


For our last digital photography class the group took a walk in the Willard Park to explore the many wonders to a photographer’s eye.

Part of the skill of a photographer is to turn an ordinary scene into an interesting image.

Everyone has their own vision of the everyday landscape that surrounds them.  It’s the photographer’s job to find the beauty in the ordinary.

Sometimes beauty is discovered through a gray scale of a black and white image.

One of the joys of this class was the fun of discovery, finding something new through the lens of a camera and learning how to compose a compelling image.  Maybe you can join us for a class in the future.
