Tuesday 13th October – "Working with Textures"

WDPC were delighted to welcome Jane Lazenby, via Zoom, to give a talk entitled "Working with Textures". Jane came well recommended and it is easy to see why. During the first half she carefully explained What, Why and When to use a texture and gave many examples of where to find textures. In essence she said that textures were able to make things that didn't work look good. She showed very many examples to demonstrate the point. 
In the second half she clearly demonstrated how she uses textures by painting out the background and then useing a mask on a texture/s to reveal the subject. Although Jane used photoshop other programmes would be able to achieve the same effect. 
Some of her work maybe seen on her website: https://www.ejlazenbyphotography.co.uk and her YouTube channel where she shares some of her techniques: https://youtu.be/kYLYrgYKA0g
A brilliant evening and a speaker to be recommended.
