Shirley was a very popular speaker at PhotoWest 2019.  She is a well known abstract photographer who lives in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. She attended her first abstract photography course in 2010 and has developed her own style since then. In this presentation she will tell us what she has learnt on her photographic journey and show us some of her current work.

17/06/2020 Workshop





We are following up our successful Lightroom Library Tips presentation with Photoshop Tips. Judith Shields, Tony Luha, Adrian Cooper and Jane Speijers will be talking about smart objects, avoiding and removing sharpening haloes, advanced clone stamp tips and the comparison with the healing brushes, and use of the content aware tools with selections. These aspects of Photoshop have been chosen from a plethora of possibilities because we think they may be useful and provide post-processing options that are not available in Lightroom.

by Jane Trotter 


 Wierd scenes inside the gold mine


Jane developed a keen interest in photography when she decided it was time for a new creative challenge. Having joined the local New Zealand photographic clubs, she quickly discovered her passion for abstract photography and in 2009 used these abstract images to gain her APSNZ.


‘Abstracted Reality’ is Jane’s interpretation and transmutation of her immediate surroundings. With the goal of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary, Jane’s unique images, often depicting commonplace, everyday domestic objects, are imbued with a new perspective and transformative character. In this talk Jane describes her approach to abstract photography, outlines her guiding principles and work processes, and reveals how she created some of her images.
