I am pleased to announce that I will be giving a talk called “The digital monochrome print” on the Wirral in the UK at the Vauxhall Motors Sports and Social Club, Rivacre Road, Ellesmere Port this coming Sunday afternoon.
If there are any remaining tickets they can purchased through
John Rowell on 01286 872361.
This is quite a prestigious event and I’m quite delighted to be invited to give the presentation bearing in mind the quality of the previous speakers over the years. The presentation for around 100 people will begin at 13.30.
The talk will be a combination of A2 sized mono prints, slideshow with commentary in the first half. Followed by an overview “how to” session with my laptop in CS6 and Lightroom 5 in the second.
For reasons I cannot explain at the moment I have been looking back at my now old Ethiopia pictures. One of the things which impressed me about Ethiopia was the light and the dust.
The things which add atmosphere and mood to a picture are rain, dust, smoke, steam, fog etc.
As I have said before there is no such thing as the wrong weather or atmosphere or climate just the wrong clothing and inappropriate attitude. So when it is raining, misty or foggy then is the time to go and get pictures with mood and atmosphere.
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog.
