This will be a live, three-part interactive on-line workshop for up to six people.
It is easy to get drawn into the technicality of the equipment and forget that photography is about vision, imagination and seeing, or the ability to envision something in your mind’s eye and then make it happen with the tools at hand. Do you want to develop a more creative approach to your photography.
This three-part online workshop led by Glenys Garnett will allow you to examine your own personal approach to creativity and develop ideas, skills and tools that you can then use in your image making.
Part 1: breaking down the barriers to creativity
In this first session we will look at what stops you being creative, what are your barriers and how do you overcome them? We will look at how personal projects can help you develop your ideas, and I will suggest tools and resources that can help you to develop your creative skills.
Part 2: creative camera techniques
In this workshop we will talk about the tools and techniques that can be used to produce in-camera creative images. We will look at how you can approach your photography in a more creative way by using techniques like intentional camera movement and multiple exposure, and also look at using alternative lenses for creative effect including using vintage lenses and Lensbaby.
Part 3: making creative composites in Photoshop
In this final workshop Glenys will guide participants through how she makes some of her creative compositions in Photoshop. She will show the processing techniques she uses to build and develop an image from start to finish including; preparing the images for use, creating brushes from an image, using texture overlays, and masking etc. You will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the process and try some of the techniques on your own computer.
In order to take part in this workshop, you will need:
a computer with webcam and microphone
a reasonable internet connection
Adobe Photoshop installed
- a working knowledge of Photoshop including adjustment layers and blending modes.

Cancellation by us
Event leaders are asked to make plans for alternative activities or locations in the case of poor weather and, in most cases, events will proceed despite poor weather unless, in the view of the event leader, the weather will lead to unacceptable safety risks or very little chance of successful photography. It is inevitable, however, that occasionally an event will be postponed or cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control. If an event is postponed we will transfer your booking to the rearranged event, with the option of a refund if the rescheduled date is not suitable for you.
Occasionally an event may also be cancelled owing to lack of bookings. So if you wish to attend an event, don’t leave it till the last minute to book as it may be too late.
If an event is cancelled we will give you as much notice as we are able and any payment by you to the RPS in respect of the event offered as a full refund. In the case of events cancelled because of lack of interest we will aim to give at least three weeks’ notice wherever possible.
Please note we are NOT able to refund any associated or consequential costs including but not limited to travel, accommodation, insurance premium or other costs incurred by you in order to attend the event.
