Thank you Michelle Kennedy

Michelle Kennedy’s “Creative Composite Images” was inspiring.  Those who attended were in awe of Michelle’s creative mind.  Michelle demonstrated how she used many images to painstakingly create a work .  She very generously shared her ideas and encouraged everyone to “have a go”.  We all had an exercise to do to demonstrate that in fact, each of us has imagination.   This was a great presentation and Michelle has sent 3 images to share with you. As you can see, Michelle takes meticulous care and pride in her work.

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:”

BioBlitz Cessnock City Council 8 September 2019

As part the the Cessnock City Council’s  BioBlitz day at Poppethead Park, Kitchener, Roy Killen conducted a group tour on Photographing Nature.

During the day, Roy struck a problem, when the latest Police recruit discovered that Roy had not eaten his vegetables and promptly arrested him!
