- CAN I WATCH LATER? Yes! Sign-up and we'll email you a recording
A talk about the photography of natural subjects, such as flowers and insects. John will present techniques for producing images that are personal, different, and distinctive. He will illustrate with a range of his photographs and will show the use of photography software to produce artistic results. John will consider the ways in which immersive photography brings you closer to the natural world and finds beauty in subjects which might otherwise be ignored.
- Duration: 60 mins
- Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (a recording will be available)
- This is a free Festival of Belonging event. As such, we encourage you to bring along a friend or neighbour who hasn't joined a Mirthy event before!
Meet the Host, John Humphrey
John is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society. He specialises in art and macro photography. John presents RPS workshops on Close-up Photography, Creative Art Photography, and Photography as an aid to Mental Wellbeing. His work has been in many exhibitions including the international exhibitions of the RPS and the London Salon. His books ‘Close-up and Macro Photography’ and ‘Creative and Experimental Photography’ are published by the Crowood Press.
John believes that good photographs are personal with a clear contribution from the photographer, rather than just being a record of a time or place. Examples of John’s work can be viewed on his website www.johnhumphrey.co.uk
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Mirthy events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
