Mono for You by Gareth Martin

Thursday 15th April 2021 We have a talk by Gareth Martin CPAGB, AWPF entitled ‘Mono for You’

A few words about Mono and me, I started in my first club in 1978 where I was shown how to develop and print BW prints, I preferred creative printing in the dark room. I made 16×12 prints which seemed the standard of the day now my prints are between 16×12 cm to 20x16cm its what I prefer small prints on 50×40 cm mounts.
As a photographer I describe myself as a butterfly as I land on different subjects, I do like Landscape, Candid portraiture, street shoots and more.
