Creative Group

(available to members only)

The only limitation in creative photography is your imagination.  OK….maybe a little knowledge of techniques to bring your imagination to life and a willingness to take risks and try things you are not yet comfortable with.  But if you have a passion for photography…. You have everything you need for creative photography.

This group will meet one evening a month in October, November, January, February, March and April.

Techniques we will explore include:

Creation and Use of Textures
Turning your photograph into a Painting
Bringing your creative vision to life through Composites
Taking the everyday item and turning it into a design
Special Effects 

Group members interested in sharing a technique with the rest of the group are welcome to participate in presentations.

You will need to have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.  We will talk about additional software that can be useful in creative photography but it is not required.  As is the case with everything Photoshop – there are several ways to accomplish the same thing.

In the months of October, January and March we will spend the majority of the night in a teaching presentation, demonstrating one or two of the above topics per night and providing plenty of time for questions and discussion on the techniques.

In the months of November, February and April, group members will be encouraged to bring in 2 or 3 of their own creative photographs to share with the group, talk about their techniques and lessons learned and if they want, solicit feedback from the group on what has worked well with the photograph and how their image may be improved.

Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you're passionate about something, then you're more willing to take risks.   Yo Yo Ma

Plan to join us!
