Michael Eleftheriades is pleased to invite you to the next Nikon Owner (London Group) talk “The Art & Science of Flower Photography” by Sue Bishop and John McCormack, which will be held on Friday, September 23rd 2011 at Kensingtonrooms Hotel.
Sue and John are long-standing members of the Nikon Owners’ group, and they are jointly presenting the first meeting of the autumn season on flower photography. They share a passion for their botanical subject matter, but approach it from two very different perspectives.
Sue is a well-known flower photographer and has written two books on the subject, as well as a third book on ‘Colour, light and composition’. Her work often portrays a colourful and almost abstract world which she has developed into a personal art form; she has travelled throughout Europe and as far as the Himalayas to find material for her particular subject. Some years ago she founded Light & Land which is one of the most successful photographic tour companies; in addition, she has regularly contributed to a number of books and magazines.
John, on the other hand, works mainly on a small optical bench on his kitchen table to produce highly technical close-up and macro flower pictures. He is going to show us new developments in stacking multiple images to achieve greater depth-of-field and up to near microscopic magnification.
We are limited to 50 seats, so please book your places early to avoid disappointment.
