I do give talks to photography clubs, and elsewhere too, and am currently taking bookings for the following subjects:-
Odd Things – Part Deux
What makes a creative image? How did it come about? How did creative photography develop?
From the 1800’s onwards photographers have created, changed and developed images – they have spent time fooling the viewer.
This talk covers imagery made from earliest times, through to modern day photographers who are making an effort to fool, or confuse the viewer.
We will talk about photographers you have heard of, and hopefully some you won’t, but I hope it will help develop knowledge of what has gone before, and help you relate to what is going on now.
Photography is your theatre, and the viewers and judges your audience – how well you fool them is up to you…….
A general talk about camera creativity – thinking outside the box, and getting your images noticed.
Playing with Light
An interactive evening – which needs to be run either in the winter when it’s dark at your meeting time, or in a large room which can be blacked out in the summer.
Two of us will run a session using long exposures, to capture lights which are being ‘waved’ by members. We have tools, toys, and a gadget called ‘Spirojib’. It’s a bit like the spirograph toy, but instead of pens, we use lights.
We will also use small finger lights, and a pixelstick to create other effects.
The shoot can be completed indoors or out – Members should bring cameras able to complete exposures up to at least 30 seconds, and a solid tripod. Remote release is useful.
Torches, or any toys that light up can be used. We will supply the rest…..
If you would like me to tailor make a talk especially for your club / organisation, please contact me, and I’ll see what I can do.
