Abstract Architecture Photography - Creativity in Composition
HUDSON - On Wednesday, October 4, the Assabet Valley Camera Club (AVCC) is pleased to host Angie McMonigal, a fine-art and commercial architecture photographer based in Chicago. Drawing from her education in the micro sciences (molecular biology, microbiology, virology), Angie’s images capture bold architectural details rather than sweeping cityscapes. She creates images that celebrate unexpectedly iconic elements hiding in plain sight.
During her Abstract Architecture Photography presentation, Angie’s discussion will focus on creative approaches to architectural subjects. Emphasis will be on architectural details and creating abstracts of the built environment. She will share how to uncover creative viewpoints and how to best utilize compositional tools to create more compelling images. View her gallery at https://angiemcmonigal.com.
