04/09/2023 Interesting Stuff St Andrew's Church Hall Justin Minns A quest to find interesting subjects to photograph is one of the things that keeps me motivated, the question is what makes an interesting photograph, the subject or the photographer? https://www.justinminns.co.uk/profile

25/09/2023 Working with Textures Zoom Janey Lazenby Answering all the what and how questions, I go through sourcing and creating textures , how to use blend modes and then 3 different methods of how to apply textures to an image. After a short mid way break, I invite the club to submit random images for a live edit where I will take between 3-5 images and apply textures from my own stock to create final pieces., narrating every click on route. I believe that seeing the process happen 'for real' is very valuable for viewers. A talk that always goes down well as a hands-on 'how-to', I travel slowly and clearly through the technical aspects, happily repeating steps if requested. https://www.ejlazenbyphotography.co.uk

If you own a smartphone, then you own a camera, and if you own a camera, you have the tools to create stunning images and video content.  Smartphone photography has gained greater kudos over the last few years, mainly due to the fact that the camera capabilities on phones can now rival DSLRs.  At Jet Black Squares, we give you the skills to utilise your smartphone camera better, and show you how to release its full, photographic potential.  Whether in person or on a virtual, live-stream smartphone photography masterclass, you will be guaranteed to come away with knowing how your camera works better as well as some tips and tricks to get those creative shots.
