Steve is a member of the Amersham Photographic Society. And he chairs a sub-group there (the Amersham Beyond Group) which concentrates exclusively on creative photography and photo-based art. Despite having been a photography enthusiast for over 40 years, Steve claims not to see anything interesting or take interesting photographs. He says he doesn’t do sunrise or sunset or wildlife. And, anyway, it’s all been done before. Accordingly, Steve prefers to “make” images and produce something unique. His talk is therefore about “creative photography” and took us through his experiences of making images.

Wednesday 16 January 2019 club members were superbly informed and entertained by Colin Brister ABIPP (Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photography) and his illuminating illustrated talk “Lighting of All Things”. Colin is a freelance event photographer specialising in motocross and, more pertinently for this talk, an expert in the use of off-camera flash and other lighting. All his images are made with some artificial light – “I use lighting for everything”.
Several members explained how they had developed certain of their images (sometimes from unpromising beginnings) using Lightroom, Photoshop and other post-processing software. Last Wednesday (9 January 2019), following on from our own [...]
