Dumfries and Galloway's Open Studio event - Spring Fling - is this coming weekend - Saturday 23rd to Monday 25th May, 10.30am to 5pm
This year, 2 members of the Galloway Photographic Collective will be taking part - Kim Ayres and Roger Lever
Roger Lever - Studio 62 on the Orange Route
I work with still and moving images exploring the way light shapes and shifts our perspective in a moment. I am on a journey of discovery and learning. If I can please other people at the same time I will be succeeding.
What to Expect: My theme – Scotland’s iconic seabird 'The Gannet'. Images taken at Bass Rock in 2014 will be displayed along with an experimental installation printed and projected onto fabric along with a musical backing. There will be updates on my 1000 Faces Scotland Project.
At the clock tower in Dalbeattie go up Station Rad past the Bank of Scotland until you come to New Station Road on the left. My studio is approximately 50m on the left
Kim Ayres - Studio 29 on the Pink Route
You can be the hero, heroine or even villain of your own epic image. With the right props, costume, location, lighting and maybe a bit of Photoshop editing, there really are no limits to what is achievable in photography.
What to Expect: In addition to displaying examples of my work, I will be running photography demonstrations throughout the weekend. Discover how changing the composition and lighting of a scene can dramatically affect the emotional impact of a photograph.
