21st February 2018 - "Digital Adventure 2018" by Colin Harrison FRPS

Our presenter was Colin Harrison FRPS, FIPF, MFIAP, MPAGB, EFAIP\d1, MPSA, APAGB,  a world renowned photographer  from Cheltenham Camera Club, with a talk titled 'Digital Adventure 2018'.  As a young lad Colin was interested in capturing images of numerous steam locomotives from around the world, but the people he has met on his travels are his favourite subjects.   Gradually his style of photography changed to producing more creative and pictorial images and  he showed us numerous images, including a selection of his latest work.  These were montages, some quirky some humorous, cleverly created using layers, textures, HDR, mono and other techniques and resulting in award winning images.  Since joining the RPS he has gained many qualifications and letters after his name and these have helped stimulate him to develop his particular style of photography.  Apart from sitting on the Licentiate, Associate and Fellowship (Fine Art) Panels for the Royal Photographic Society he is an approved PAGB National and International judge and enjoys helping others to develop their photographic skills. The latest addition to his qualifications is   EFIAP/d1 Excellence of International Federation of Photographic Art - Diamond1, a truly talented gentleman.
