Creative photography is not a specialist genre, it is part of what we do with every photograph, said Glenys Garnett our guest speaker via Zoom on 14 August.
She went on to demonstrate how relatively simple photos drawn from landscapes and nature could be transformed into stunning images. She explained the use of special lenses – sometimes the cheapest ones can have pleasing effects – and demonstrated the results of multiple exposures and other composite techniques.
She also explained her approach to abstract photography, taking real images of details or very close-up shots and then enhancing them with colour changes, textures, interesting shapes and overlays. Her approach was to “make images about how you feel, not what something looks like”.
