‘Create emotion in your photos’ was one of the key tips from visiting lecturer Chris Upton who spoke at the Club on 22 March. He applies it not just in documenting social conditions but also in how landscapes and architectural shots are presented.
He also demonstrated that compressing perspective makes middle and background objects more significant than a wide angle lens would achieve, despite the latter’s benefits of greater depth of field. If necessary he stitches together several portrait orientated images to create a broader vista with greater impact.
Chris offered many other insights in a wide-ranging talk that fully lived up to the billing as a ‘Passion for Pictures’.
