Photographers often experience what can be described as a “writer’s block,” where creativity feels stifled, and new ideas seem elusive. This workshop aims to address that very issue. John Humphrey, a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society with extensive experience in art and macro photography, will guide participants through various techniques to reawaken visual creativity.

What to Expect:
  • Photographing Detail and Pattern: Learn to see the beauty in the minutiae.
  • Abstract Photography: Explore the art of creating abstract images.
  • New Angles on Flowers: Discover unique perspectives in floral photography.
  • Combining Filters and Textures: Use software to enhance and transform your photos.
  • Creative Photoshop Techniques: Including blurring, distorting, and more.
  • Monochrome and Negative Images: Experiment with different color palettes.
  • Minimalist and High Key Photography: Embrace simplicity and brightness.
  • Unusual Subjects: Find beauty in unexpected places.
Workshop Format

This workshop is limited to 10 participants, ensuring a personalized and interactive experience. Despite being held online, it will mimic the feel of an in-person workshop. Demonstrations and discussions will be conducted via Zoom, and participants will have the opportunity to submit their photographs for supportive assessment.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is perfect for anyone who enjoys photography and wants to develop a personal style with fresh and original approaches. While no special equipment is required, familiarity with digital software such as Photoshop will be beneficial.
