    Glenys Garnett: "Insignificant Moments"

    The presentation is about how I use the camera to
    interpret the world around me using digital
    imagery, often through small self driven projects,
    the use of creative imaging and blending images
    to create digital art. Also how to move beyond the
    single image and take a different approach to
    photography.

    "Versatility in the Landscape" by Tony Higginson

    7:30 pmFriends Meeting House, Elliot Park, Keswick, CA12 5NZ
    I am going to be talking about using a wide range of photographic techniques and styles when out on location photographing the landscape which I believe allows me to capture good images whatever the weather or time of year. Many landscapers are limited by their favoured style which only really works given certain conditions which I think really limits their ability to get the best out of what they are confronted with.
    I use lenses from 24mm tilt-shift to 70-200 2.8 and I shoot classic landscapes, seascapes, woodland, ICM, Long exposure minimalism, colour, monochrome, abstract, detail etc
    I will be going through different styles showing my examples, talking about why I like each type of landscape, and trying to encourage people to step outside of their comfort zones and embrace a whole range of styles which ultimately makes us better photographers.

    Penrith Rugby Club, Winters Park, Penrith, CA11 8RG.

    I begin by showing a brief digital presentation of images showing how I started in club photography and some of which I used to gain my early photographic distinctions.  This is followed by a presentation explaining the route my images take from photo shoot to finished competition entry – showing how I constructed a successful series of images which made up my latest distinction submissions.  The images are mostly Creative / Altered Reality and include female nudity. Time permitting, I show a couple of extra powerpoint presentations where I build up some images layer by layer  - very quick but effective! The talk is digital which is loaded onto my Macbook pro but I also bring prints to supplement the talk and for members to look at during the break if they wish.
