One advantage of the lockdown situation is that you can have speakers from much further afield to come along and deliver a presentation via Zoom. So this week we were treated to the images of Ross Mckelvey, MPAGB, MFIAP, FIPF, EFIAP/p and FBPE, who comes from Belfast.
Although his focus is mainly on portraits Ross shared a number of images from other genres and included in his presentation many hints on tips on a variety of photographic topics.
In the second half Ross focussed on editing and using Photoshop and Nik, demonstrated how to process a number of the images he had previously shared.
In addition to Ross we welcomed along Margaret Salisbury from Fotospeed who helpfully answered some questions about paper choice.
Some of Ross's images can be seen on his website: https://www.rossmckelvey.co.uk/about.html
In addition Ross has a YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPt9fm1RtwqdzvaJBrHUCwA/videos?view_as=subscriber
where there are many helpful tutorials.
