Jane Postiglione has been shooting images since she received her first Brownie camera at age 11. As an undergraduate student in Architectural Interior Design at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York, Jane shot with a medium format 2 ¼ Minolta twin lens reflex camera and a handheld light meter, and learned to develop film and make black and white prints. After receiving her BFA from Pratt, Jane practiced design in New York City, travelled several times to Europe, and then moved west to study Instructional Technology and multimedia in graduate school at SF State. This lead to work in writing, shooting and editing instructional training videos for the Army and the Navy, as well as creating and delivering technology and management programs for the corporate world. Jane started using digital equipment in 2004. Jane has won many club awards for her prints and digital images, and has been President of the Contra Costa Camera Club (Pleasant Hill), and President of the Northern California Council of Camera Clubs (N4C). In addition to being on the Board of CCCC and N4C, Jane was a past Board Member of the Alamo Danville Artist Society, and past Director of their Rotating Gallery. She also filled in as Interim Director and Curator at Sun Gallery in Hayward, Ca. She has shown and sold her work in group and individual shows at local galleries and establishments. Most recently several of her images were published in the Best of Photography 2014 in Photographer’s Forum, a magazine for the emerging professional. In addition to her fine art photography, Jane shoots weddings and events with her photographer/musician husband. You can view Jane’s website at: https://photographybypost.com/
As a Photographer, I believe it is important to consciously select visually interesting subject matter with appealing compositional elements, shoot at the best time of day to portray the image, use the best technical parameters to capture the image, and tell the subject’s story,…. capture the subject’s essence,…all while demonstrating a personal visual style or signature that sets your work apart from
the work of others. I acknowledge that evaluating and judging photography and art is subjective, yet I believe there are certain universal aesthetic principles and guidelines, which apply to all artwork. For N4C judging I follow the N4C and PSA rules and definitions.
