Loveland Photo Society speaker to present mobile phone abstract photography walk-about workshop in Loveland – Loveland Reporter-Herald

Jeff Johnson, who will speak at the August meeting of the Loveland Photographic Society has created a unique workshop: Intentional camera movement (ICM) with cellphone cameras.

Participants will go to a King Soopers grocery store and photograph in the floral and produce sections, hanging out with all of the color and flare that comes with fruit, veggies and flowers.

This will be a step away from reality and a challenge for photographers’ creativity. The abstract imagery that only your imagination can create will be put to the test.

Johnson will share his fun techniques for camera movement, exposure lengths, painting and more. He will show you how to use “Slow Shutter” app for the iPhone or the manual camera controls on your Android or Google phones. He will demonstrate how he creates colorful and unique abstracts and then turn participants loose to create their own abstracts.

For the last 30 minutes of this Walk-About, Johnson will share how to edit and enhance abstracts in Snapseed (phone and tablet) and in Lightroom and Photoshop on computers.

This workshop is designed as a comfortable and informal event so everyone has a chance to shoot, ask questions and learn.

All skill levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. Bring your cellphone with either the Slow Shutter Cam app (for iOS) or Long Exposure Camera 2 app (for Android).

This event will take place at 6-9 p.m. Monday, July 22, at the King Soopers store, 1275 Eagle Drive in Loveland.
