Thanks for stopping by.
Today I wanted to tell you about a talk / presentation I did last week for the Nikon Owner Group / Magazine.
The Nikon Owner magazine is a worldwide publication with the purpose of uniting Nikon owners and bringing them unique free offers that will increase their skill and interest in photography and Nikon equipment. Nikon Owner is dedicated to bringing the reader all the latest news and authoritative product reviews on Nikon equipment by renowned photographer and writer Simon Stafford. Also featured are reader portfolios and inspirational pictures from the world’s leading Nikon professionals.
For the talk I gave the group an insight into how I first became involved in the industry (which you may already know came from first of all being introduced to Photoshop) and then talked through the stories behind some of my pictures covering mistakes made, lessons learned, challenges and so on…
I also discussed the importance of planning & preparation, inspiration and something I’m a BIG believer in, and that’s giving your model / subject a role or character to play. Finally finishing the evening with a handful of quick and effective Photoshop techniques that are useful for Photographers i.e. lighting effects and retouching.
“Just to let you know how much I enjoyed the evening. I thought his delivery was so good. His pace was just right for me and I learned a lot of useful stuff. I am always impressed when people with such skill are so generous with imparting their knowledge. Handing on a plate, to someone like me is so refreshing, after all he must have spent many hours to work out the best and quickest way of achieving things. I don’t do any of the type of work he is involved in, but none the less the tips he gave us are very valuable tools for many other applications”.

Following on from the talk, on Sunday 2nd June 2013 I shall be giving a Seminar on Advanced Photoshop Techniques covering such things as: Portrait and Beauty Retouching, Compositing, Lighting Effects, Special Effects, Workflow, tip and tricks and more…
