Juxtaposition; Simply stated, juxtaposition means placing things side-by-side in order to create contrast or comparison. In art this usually is done with the intention of bringing out a specific quality or creating an effect, or telling a story, particularly when two contrasting or opposing elements are used. Objects can be placed to compose your composition, or they can be found naturally eg Street Photography etc

Come and enjoy a fun and relaxed evening of photographic slideshows getting to know the members of APS.
The 5 x 7 format is 5 members showing 20 images in a slideshow lasting 7 minutes. They will tell you the story behind the photograph and what made them take it or how they did it.
Anyone can present and it’s an opportunity to blow the dust off your portfolio and show us what really makes you tick in a relaxed and non-competitive environment.

If you are interested in presenting on any of these three evenings please get in touch with Lezanne Gibbs (, Ewon Lucas( or Roger Hurley ( Best to copy us all in to be sure we don’t miss anything.

Followed by tea, coffee and a chance to chat with club members

Peter will present a short summary of his journey from a club ‘C’ (Novice) grade photographer to gaining a FPSNZ award. For him taking the image is the starting point and he will show his work flow from Lightroom to Photoshop. His latest work uses multiple images, layers, blending modes and vast array of effects available by using plugins such as Topaz. With the digital tools now available the only limitation is your imagination. This will be an interactive workshop with questions encouraged.

Colour on Colour; A single colour image that includes tones of that one colour. Use your imagination and create an effect. It could be a praying mantis on a green leaf. It could be a textured patten. Be creative and you decide, but your image must only contain the tones of one single colour, which does not including black and white.
