This evening Carol McNiven Young FRPS EFIAP CPAGB BPE2* visited the club to give her presentation Total Immersion. This talk documented Carol’s introduction in to photography and how it then became an obsession that has seen her win countless awards and achieve a Fellowship from the Royal Photographic Society – all this in just a few short years. Determination and preparation being a large part of her success.
Carol didn’t hide anything as she explained where her ideas came from, her techniques in post-processing, her methods of working and where she got her wonderful costumes and props. Carol’s patter also included plenty of comic quips and humours anecdotes that had the audience laughing out loud.
All of this was supported by many projected photographs, including before and after pictures. These looked extremely good but to see the real excellence of Carol’s work you had to look at her prints, and Carol had brought along her FRPS panel of fairy tale imagery based on illustrations found in old-time books. These prints were nothing short of stunning, in quality, content and presentation.
The evening was very well received and our membership left in awe of those prints, filled with aspirations to achieve something of their own that matches the beauty of Carol’s FRPS panel.
Thank-you Carol, for agreeing to visit KCC, your presentation will certainly be one of the highlights of the year.
