About the event:

Award winning photographer Charles Needle speaks to our group for the first time about his impressionistic photography. Charles is another speaker that was requested by the community.

About the Talk:

Unlock your creative potential and discover how to craft Impressionistic-looking photographs using nothing more than your digital camera or smartphone.  Charles will describe the process of using long-exposure and multiple-exposure techniques to transform everyday scenes into unimaginable visual masterpieces.

Using an easy-to-understand, step-by-step approach, he will define and illustrate techniques such as, Long-Exposure Pan/Tilt, "Multiple-Exposure Monet" (a technique Charles invented), Multiple-Exposure Rotate & Zoom, Soft-Glow Montage and Composite Montage.  He will also explain how to use a free script in Photoshop to accomplish this same look, if your camera does not have built-in multiple-exposure capability.  You’ll learn how to see in new ways and take your photography to an entirely new, mind-blowing level!
