Call for Artists: Painting with Light – OSA Photography Show

Painting with Light: OSA Photography Show in partnership with the Portland Photographers
Forum
April 7 – 27, 2022
Online Viewing: April 8 – June 1

“It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye,
heart, and head.” -Henri Cartier-Bresson

Partnering with light and a camera, photographers remake the world through images.
Each photograph is a time machine, transporting the viewer to a particular time, place,
and perspective. From black and white, to pinhole, large format and digital, we want to
see the world through your camera lens!

To create a compelling image, the photographer must consider light, composition,
contrast, framing, subject, and psyche. What is revealed in the photograph, however, is
always a surprise. Subject and photographer are equally unmasked within the camera’s
gaze. Celebrating the image in all of its forms, Painting With Light aims to showcase the
artistry, depth, and profundity of the photographic medium.

Painting With Light will be juried by Jānis Miglavs, a photographer whose work has
been featured in National Geographic, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Outdoor Photographer and more.
