20th September " Landscape Photography: Lightweight Tools and Techniques" Robin Whalley

Robin writes of his talk

"I am a self-taught photographer with a love of the outdoors, a passion for software and a skill for sharing knowledge. I started my photographic journey in 2000, first with film, before moving quickly to embrace digital technology. Mastering digital technology for me was a defining moment in my photography. It finally allowed me to achieve the images I could see so clearly in my mind. What I didn’t initially realise was that many more photographers were also struggling with this problem.

In 2012 I began publishing photographic guides through Amazon. These were designed to help people improve their photography and image editing skills quickly. The approach was to present information in understandable chunks, backed up by practical examples. I now spend most of my free time writing books, developing courses and running my website.

Landscape Photography: Lightweight Tools & Techniques

There are three key components to creating good photography:

1.   Developing a clear vision

2.   Technical mastery of the camera

3.   Good image editing

This presentation looks at how I apply all three of these to Landscape Photography in my lightweight approach.  The message is that you can shoot great landscapes using a small camera in a shoulder bag. I will also show that image editing can be easy and intuitive when you use the right tools and understand a few basic points."
