14th Feb 2019 – Local Projects and Creative Techniques – Chris Dale

Chris will be looking at how project work, repeated visits and experimenting with creative abstract techniques can help to make the most of even an uninspiring location.

About Chris Dale 

I’m Chris Dale, a photographer based in Nottingham, England.

My photography comes from the enjoyment of being out in the woodland and countryside, unwinding from life’s stresses and being surrounded by nature.
A lot of my work is focussed on the local area, which isn’t known for big vistas. This has led me to look at the landscape differently, trying to capture the essence of the place at that time, rather than a straight representation. While most of my photos have no obvious landmark I aim to portray the different elements that make up a location, from the wider views to small details and abstract interpretations.

More recently I have been focussing almost entirely on abstract and project work.
My images have been published, exhibited and awarded in major competitions.

Colin Lusby will present with A3 Colour and monochrome prints covering a variety of subjects, the vast majority of which are new or have been produced within the last 12 months. This is very much a ‘light hearted’ talk, questions, comments and feedback are welcomed.
