Tonight is one of the evenings throughout the season allocated to Activity,/Practical/Technique issues.
NDPS are delighted to have Ian Wilson ARPS with us who will lead us through ‘Post Processing using Photoshop’ - something he is a specialist in.
About Ian Wilson
I am an engineer by profession, but have been fascinated by photography ever since I was at University. I discovered it was possible to sign out the key t the college darkroom, and that was the start of a long love affair with confined spaces, red lights and smelly chemicals.
The combination of work pressures and a young family meant that photography took a back seat for many years, but in 1997 I joined a camera club in order to ‘learn’ how to do it properly. I became a member of the Royal Photographic Society and gained my LRPS distinction in 2000. As the rest of the world went digital, I continued working with film - mainly medium format- and making darkroom prints. Eventually, in 2005. I took the plunge and replaced my aged collection of film bodies and lenses with a state-of-the-art Digital SLR.
There was a huge learning curve coming to grips with Photoshop, but my background in computing meant that it was far less painful than it could have been. Going digital also allowed me to experiment with printing in colour, something which I’d done for a while in the darkroon, but had given up to concentrate on monochrome work. I joined Cambridge Camera Club in 2007, and gained my ARPS distinction the following year.
I tackle mosy photographic subjects, but have a particular interest in natural history, architecture and anything remotely ‘quirky’.
