With twenty years of travel experience, David has extensive knowledge of shooting city life and lowlight subjects.

**12:30pm** Adapting with Sony Ambassador Glyn Dewis.

In this presentation, Photographer and Author Glyn Dewis will discuss how, when unable to take Portraits during lockdowns, he began to experiment with other genres of photography from landscape to macro in a concerted effort to keep busy, keep creative and keep the tools in his hands. However, what was to be a temporary fix has become much more, now providing unlimited content and possibilities and with Glyn openly admitting that living with and adapting to restrictions, has made him a better Photographer and with added skillset.

**1:30pm** Rita Ora’s Hydeout: Shooting a live greenscreen concert

In the depths of lockdown, Oggi Tomic was commissioned to shoot Rita Ora’s performances for a music festival that became virtual. As shoots go it was pretty demanding – filming nine songs twice each in full ProRes RAW with a green screen and a limited budget. Aided by behind the scenes photos and clips of the final footage Oggi will take you through the process from start to finish including planning kit selection and challenges plus the fresh demands of shooting on a moving boat the next day!

**2:30pm** Blending Images with Jonathan Vaines, Cambridge Camera Club.

This talk focuses on the blending of images. Many people use Blend Modes with the post-processing packages to correct colour, remove halos etc but most modern cameras can also make use of blend modes at the time of capture with multiple exposures. Jonathan will show images that have been created in-camera using multiple exposures along with some corrections and enhancements in post-processing. The results are unique pieces of art, often abstract. Rich colour palettes and organic shapes help create what Jonathan sees as wall art created by the camera.
