Speaker: Niall Benvie

We were pleased to have Niall Benvie from near Brechin to talk to us this evening on methods for retaining viewers’ attention for more than 2 seconds – tricky in an era of flickr and instagram.

Niall showed a selection of his works – from wildlife and light-painted landscape presented as “chocolate bar” montages and colour transects to closeups of stones and pebbles; he showed behind-the-scenes of shooting grasshoppers in a light-box and flowers with flash-light in the field, and spoke knowledgeably about blending techniques in Photoshop and other applications as well.
