Foto Fest is coming to the Midlands this July. It’s “A unique opportunity to learn from and be inspired by world renowned photographers and image makers”.
It includes talks from landscape photographer Charlie Waite and wildlife photographer Tom Way. The full schedule of events can be seen here. Tickets are £40.
The title, ‘Moments in Time’ refers to my limited opportunities for photography, having to weave my photographic opportunities into the rest of my life, grabbing ‘moments in time’ and using a more spontaneous approach to photography, seeing photographic potential in less obvious places. Subject matter is mainly landscape, urban details and street photography. I particularly enjoy images which evoke a mood, tell a story or provoke a question. I use digital manipulation to add to the mood and to direct the eye of the viewer to recreate the image that I ‘saw’ when I initially made the image, which may not have been the image which was actually there.
Erica is a member of the Gamma Photoforum and details of her work can be found there.
