Adrian Lines Talk – “People, Portraits and Pachyderms” – 12 March 2021

The Star Wars style of the opening credits of this recorded presentation, including Adrian’s statement that he doesn’t do “straight photography” should have given a clue that this was not to be about conventional photography! It comprised a series of 40 images, each made up of a number of other images, brought together in a creative way to produce some quite surreal images on the themes of people, portraits and pachyderms, plus the World of Harry Potter. To watch the images being formed and then dismantled needs to be seen to be appreciated.

The latter half of the evening was taken up by a demonstration of free editing programme, Photoscape X, by member Steve Eckhardt. We were all very impressed with this comprehensive and versatile software.
