John Botton (FPSNZ) gained his Fellowship with PSNZ with an unusual set of abstract images. He will present and talk about this set to you on the 5th March to help you gain an insight into how you can work towards creating abstract art with photography. This workshop will also give you a peek at how to go down the road of obtaining your Fellowship and how to keep pushing your creative boundaries.

We look forward to your company on the 5th March. 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start.

Force the viewer to look at the world differently: capture your subject in a way that it would not usually be seen. Look for the details, patterns, lines, form, shape and colours that complete a subject and utilize those key features to make an engaging image.  The nature of the subject should not be immediately obvious.  NB Impressionism is not necessarily Abstract.

For all Nature images, scientific or common names must be included in the titles. Images in New Zealand Nature must have been taken in the natural environment of New Zealand or its offshore islands.  All images must maintain a faithful representation of a natural form, behaviour or phenomenon as captured in the original image. No elements within the original image may be moved, cloned, introduced, deleted, rearranged or combined. No artificial, false or substitute backgrounds are to be used. Any manipulation or modification to the original image is limited to minor retouching of blemishes and must not alter the content of the original scene. Resizing, cropping, selective lightening or darkening and restoration of the original colour of the scene are also acceptable. Digital techniques that extend the capability of the camera may be used as long as they honestly and accurately represent the original nature story or event at the time of capture.

Choose an artist and make an image in that style.  This should be an homage, not a direct copy.  Photographic representations of artworks in any medium are considered an homage if there is an added value by the photographer and because of the different medium being used.  The name of your chosen artist must feature within the title.
