  • Changes To Competition Rules For 2020-2021

    With the commencement of the 2020-2021 Season, the Committee has voted to change the size requirements for ALL images submitted to LBPC internal competitions. Also, members will be required to submit TWO versions of each image, each with a size identifier included at the end of the filename.

Taking Images vs Making Images – Steve Brabner

Steve is a member of the Amersham Photographic Society. And he chairs a sub-group there (the Amersham Beyond Group) which concentrates exclusively on creative photography and photo-based art. Despite having been a photography enthusiast for over 40 years, Steve claims not to see anything interesting or take interesting photographs. He says he doesn’t do sunrise or sunset or wildlife. And, anyway, it’s all been done before. Accordingly, Steve prefers to “make” images and produce something unique. His talk is therefore about “creative photography” and took us through his experiences of making images.
