Presentation: Teresa Alexander-Arab – Creative Photography
Creative Photography can be accomplished 2 ways – in camera (motion blur, zoom, moving camera, etc) and using software. Teresa showed examples of each and walked us through how she created some of her own images. Her message: don’t be afraid to play with your images…you never know what you’ll end up with unless you try.
