Our last workshop evening of this season was themed for members to share Images and to explore the creative decisions behind the processing, to create the ultimate authors vision. We had two presentations on this subject. One from myself showing before and after Images, starting with the raw file and comparing with the finished Image.
Explaining the Inspiration and thoughts in achieving the final Image. Mike Brankin gave an excellent presentation, also showing Images whilst demonstrating the build up to achieving his vision for his successful work. (Unfortunately cut short through loss of signal from his camper van in Scotland!)
As a bonus, Cat Humphries gave the members an update on her recent change of camera and the challenge of lighting in drama group productions. Showing some wonderful theatre Images while explaining her issues and ultimate resolution.
It was reported that both Rebecca Berman and Stuart Craig had achieved highly commended accolades for their recent entries into the PAGB competition for photographs taken on a camera phone. Many congratulations to both for their achievement.
Another enjoyable evening spent celebrating our passion for photography.
