During this evenings presentation, Mike Martin will talk about his approach to creative portrait photography including examples from his recent Welsh Associate Panel. He will share tips and tricks to help you get the most from your pictures as well as demonstrating with before and after photos the impact you can make with Photoshop. After coffee, Mike will talk about his lockdown images which appeared in this month’s edition of The PAGB news.
Mike is a photography enthusiast who particularly enjoys creative portraiture and messing about in Photoshop. He enjoys the challenges of entering competitions across multiple genres (with some success) and has written for or been featured in several photography magazines over the years. More recently he has gained his Welsh Associateship and AFIAP qualifications but as a print maker (sponsored by Fotospeed) he regards selection for the PAGB Masters of Print exhibition last year as one of his highlights, matched by medal successes in International Salons.
Mike is keen to encourage / develop others and has been giving lectures to camera clubs for about three years, runs studio sessions for his current and former camera club, volunteers for the Photographers with Disabilities Group locally, runs the portrait and editing modules in the BPS annual photography course and is the lead judge for the NPS monthly competitions.
