Projects for Lockdown with Mike McNamee FRPS

Event info

Note this is a joint meeting with the RPS North West Region replacing the annual Christmas Lunch so all tickets are free.

When all the current nonsense started people retreated behind their front doors (those that could!) and set about all those DIY projects that had accumulated over the years. Things have been going on for so long now that new projects are needed, there is only so much drying paint you can put up with!

Two characteristics that are required are that projects should not involve face-to-face contact with strangers and (for many) they should not involve too much expenditure. Within these tight constraints (and they have been tight for many) some surprising ingenuity has been shown and so Mike’s talk is something of a tribute to the work that has been done to record the Covid-19 situation, its effect upon people and also to inspire others to seek their own projects, and learning pathways.

So, we shall talk about some of the moving in-hospital photo essays that have been created but also take the opportunity to teach about creative project development, along with suggestions of some software techniques that you might hone, Photoshop 2021, the new Canon Pro 300 printer and a few other things that have passed across the editorial desk over the last few months. We’ve all become very Zoom savvy of late let’s make use of it!
