Please join us for the RPS April meeting to be held Monday, April 17, 2023, at 7:30 PM in the Reston Community Center at Hunters Woods.  Janet Sifers, one of our members, will take us into the world of Abstract Photography.  Her work is both exciting and mysterious. This meeting would be interesting to both photographers and painters and all are welcome.


Creating Abstracts with Photography

Most photographers have a specialty like nature, flowers, landscapes, or street photography. Just about any of these images can be raw material for abstracts — both found and created — and lead to an amazing new piece of art. In this presentation, we’ll walk through ways to look for abstracts in the images you’re capturing as well as how to create abstracts from images using tools like Photoshop and Fragment.
