Tools not Rules, a talk by Caroline Preece lrps

Event info

Caroline is a very active RPS member and is often seen at talks and workshops, and tonight is going to pop over the other side of the web camera to  talk to us about covers photography as a visual language, a really important aspect of photography.

She gained her LRPS in 2015 and in 2019 became a photographic judge and now judges across the UK. Her journey has taken her into the world of visual language, visual design and the psychology of how we interpret the visual world around us and led her to reject the concept of rules altogether, thinking instead in terms of tools.  She believes that if we understand the tools at our disposal we can then use them to better communicate through our photos.

She aims to provide photographers with an understanding of the impact of their in-camera and post-processing choices on the feel of the end image. It is based on psychology and is about empowering people to make informed decisions as opposed to worrying about rules and whether to break them.

Caroline’s own photography is a reflection of her life in London through her memories of a rural upbringing in a small country village in the South of England.  On the one hand she is drawn to human elements and stories, documenting everyday life, chance occurrences, captured moments, a look, a gaze, a feeling, an attitude, a time or a place.  But then, she writes, she seeks an escape from the hustle and bustle and create minimalist landscapes and seascapes which represent 'space to breathe' away from the urban density of city life.

I hope you can join us
