Abstract,  Bokeh,  Fine Art,  ICM,  Movement,  Snapseed

It’s show and tell time soon.

In August I am taking part in Worcestershire Open Studios (WoS) for the first time.  In WoS artists of many types open their studios for everyone to come and look at and to talk about their work.  I’ll be open from 11 am to 5.30pm on the 19th/20th and the 26th-28th.   It would be great to see you there!  Take a look at the WoS website here.

I’ll have examples of my Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) work, (like the image above), my Bokeh work (like the image below), and many more.  ICM is a method of producing images that are abstract and impressionistic.  I’ll be more than happy to talk about how the images were made, how you can use the techniques yourself, and how to edit your mobile images using Snapseed.

Bokeh, derived from a Japanese word for softness, is all about the out-of-focus areas in an image.  With lenses that have wide maximum apertures you can produce images with dreamy and soft highlight circles that still have sharp edges.

If you are feeling adventurous you can add Subject Movement to your images with ICM!  You may well end up with images that make the viewer ask what they are, but that’s no bad thing.

Want to know more?  Come along for a chat in August!
