Horsham Photographic Society has secured the renowned guest speaker, Vanda Ralevska, and we are happy to share with you the opportunity to see her.
Vanda will talk about using photography as a way to be fully present and able to see and experience the world with fresh eyes; with an emphasis on the importance of seizing the moment and re-awakening the sense of wonder, illustrating her thoughts with images from personal projects.
Vanda is a photographer based in London and she is passionate about capturing the world in which we live with her camera. She is always searching for those fleeting moments of magic that transform it into something extraordinary.
In her images she strives to reflect the atmosphere, feeling, and sheer wonderment that our world can evoke within us.
For Vanda, photography is more than just a recording of where she has been; it is about encompassing the whole experience of being in the outdoors, and trying to capture that one special moment that leaves a lasting impression.
Colleen Slater is a fully qualified and experienced teacher with a BA degree in fine art and a postgraduate Art Teacher’s Certificate. She is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and has been working full-time as a photographer since 2006. Her particular interest is macro photography and her images hope to draw attention to the ordinary, often unnoticed, things in the everyday world which appear extraordinary and sometimes unworldly when seen through a macro lens.
Colleen’s relaxed, friendly, enthusiastic style and ability to communicate clearly, whatever your level of capability, technical knowledge or experience, should make for an enjoyable and informative session.
She will also be letting us know how she took her photographs, from equipment, camera settings, lighting and focusing to composition and post processing.
