Peter will present a short summary of his journey from a club ‘C’ (Novice) grade photographer to gaining a FPSNZ award. For him taking the image is the starting point and he will show his work flow from Lightroom to Photoshop. His latest work uses multiple images, layers, blending modes and vast array of effects available by using plugins such as Topaz. With the digital tools now available the only limitation is your imagination. This will be an interactive workshop with questions encouraged.

Colour on Colour; A single colour image that includes tones of that one colour. Use your imagination and create an effect. It could be a praying mantis on a green leaf. It could be a textured patten. Be creative and you decide, but your image must only contain the tones of one single colour, which does not including black and white.

You are welcome to come to the Glenbrook Vintage Railway on Saturday 29th September to mingle with the Auckland steampunk fraternity and photograph them against the backdrop of the GVR steamtrain, the GVR station or their workshops and yards.

Steampunkers go to a huge amount of effort to create their costumes and props and love to have their photos taken and are very happy to try out any creative ideas you may have. By holding this event at Glenbrook, you have the station, operating steam train, carriages and the extensive workshops available that will add additional impact. Two makeup artists on site will ensure the women are looking wonderful!

A feature of the day is the train ride at 1.30 from the station to the workshops and return. Beware: some steampunkers are armed and may attempt a hold up (but they are kind enough to pause for a photo). As a bonus check out the railway workshops and yards which are full of interesting artefacts. This day provides plenty of material for future competitions: Portraits, abandoned, creative and landscape.

APS is sponsoring the day and if you register through the club system, you will be able to come for the discounted entry fee of $30. The event is open to all photographers and entry on the day will be $40.

Please register for this tour on the APS site and to secure your place make a payment of $30 to APS.
