TALK ON DIGITAL CREATIVE TECHNIQUES-JOHN HUMPHRIES- 23RD SEPTEMBER

If any one was not certain what creative photography was all about, John's superb lecture gave a great insight into some of the digital techniques available to take an ordinary image to a stunning creation.

He started by showing before and after shots. Even before using his creative techniques, it was clear that he was a very skilful photographer, as all the starting images were already good images. Using several readily available Photoshop techniques including layer masking, blur and motion, he was able to transform an image into a piece of artwork.

Whilst the first half of the lecture was devoted to showing before and after shots of a wide section of subjects, the later part was allocated to live demonstrations where he worked on an image and clearly showed what parts of the very wide and extensive Photoshop menu he was using. His finished images were an excellent illustration on the art of creative photography and a very valuable master class for members present.
