In anticipation of an entertaining evening with Jane Kearney the Dawlish and Teignmouth camera club turned out in force on wednesday evening - and they were not disappointed!
Jane lives on a farm in North Devon and is a keen member of Barnstaple and Holsworthy camera clubs. Jane's passion is wildlife photography, developing her own style both in the taking and producing of her stunning images.
Having acquired her first camera at the age of ten she progressed over time to working in her own darkroom and eventually entering the digital age.
Using a home-made hide she gets close enough to nature to capture wonderful images of foxes, badgers and kingfishers - all close to home. Further afield in Scotland, Iceland and the Czech republic she has photographed seals, bears, sea eagles, wolves and lynx.
Janes interests are diverse and club members were shown beautiful landscapes and seascapes ranging from Dartmoor and Glastonbury to ice patterns and the aurora borealis in Iceland. She also showed portraits and imaginitive images of water droplets and 'painting with light'.
Her composite digital images involving hours of patience and much skill were both quirky and a little surreal, giving club members a lot to think about.
She ended the evening with a live demonstration in Photoshop giving the camera club members several hints and tips on different ways to edit photographs.
Ken Holland thanked Jane for a truly inspirational evening.
