Presentation Wednesday 11 September 2019 – 7.15pm Michelle Kennedy. Creative Composite Images

“I joined Central Coast Camera Club in 2016 and instantly found a passion for Creative Composite Images.  I also enjoy Macro and Portrait Photography.  Before joining the Camera Club I didn’t have much understanding of photography, cameras and editing, and had a great deal to learn (I still do!).  I have been very successful at Camera Club Level over the last 3 years and received many Highly Commended, Merits and Distinctions in both National and International Competitions.  Below is a list of my higher achievements in ‘External Competitions’.

Having a big family (5 children) means my ability to travel and photograph different locations is limited, so for me Photoshop gives me a sense of freedom. I love creating new scenes and including my children in some of my images. I love sharing my work and techniques with anyone who wants to know / learn.  You can find some of my work on:”
