Speaker – Christine Hodgson

30/09/2021 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

This will be a face-to-face meeting at URC.

This week, we welcome Christine Hodgson, who will be demonstration some mono conversion techniques.

Christine informs us:-

I’ve been a photographer for too many years I care to remember. I exchanged a fiancé for a camera. Since then I’ve been an advocate for black and white printing, gaining a reputation for juicey black and minimalist prints. Although I still enjoy black and white work I’m more known for my creative colour work and light painting.

I gained my degree in 2011 and my ARPS the same year.   I’m treasurer of the ypu and president elect.

My black and white talk is aimed a creating strong black and white images using different methods in photoshop from basic colour desaturation, black and filters to more complex methods. If there is time I will try and incorporate silver efex. For some light relief I will show  a set of black and whites taken at the Yorkshire sculpture park near Wakefield.

Jo Humberstone

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
