ADRIC 2022 Session Description;
Photography and Conflict Resolution
Gatineau, Quebec • October 21, 2022 – 9:50 am
Photography and Conflict Resolution, What Do They Have in Common? The goal of this presentation is to inspire your practice by thinking creatively and outside of the box. Learn how to “frame” conflict differently by exploring your creative side. In order to help you focus we will look at two subject matters, landscape and people; through your eyes as a conflict management practitioner and through the camera lens, we will be able to see the conflict broadly as in a wide-angle lens, or narrowly as in a zoom lens. We will explore composition (what is creating the conflict), lighting (what needs to be highlighted and addressed) and cropping (looking deeply at the subject matter). It is time to refresh, reboot and revamp your creativity and subsequently help you readjust your conflict resolution settings! Learn how to “frame” conflict differently by exploring your creative side: ✓ Learn how to look at conflict from a different perspective ✓ Appreciate that not everyone sees an image in the same way and that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder! ✓ Frame the conflict to suit the big picture or a narrower focus ✓ Gain some great photography tips!
