It has been over two years since the last visit from Gavin Hoey a member of Tonbridge Camera Club and a professional photographer and photography instructor. His love of and enjoyment he gets from photography comes across in his presentation illustrated with short instructional videos which included demonstrations on how to produce a panoramic image he then gave a practical demonstration on how to edit it in Photoshop elements followed by how to construct a single image produced in one location using multiple selfie shots. In the second half using club member Spencer as a volunteer model , Gavin gave an entertaining workshop on studio portrait photography using a basic flash unit and a soft box to produce portraits out of the ordinary with some simple props and creative Photoshop techniques. The whole presentation was a perfect example of how to inform, educate and entertain with everyone enjoying the evening.
Please take time to visit Gavin's website and social media outlets:
