To accompany my exhibition, Staring Back, I decided I’d give a talk on “Faces, Portraits and Photoshop” this Tuesday at the Mill on the Fleet.
I’m being lent a projector to rig up to my laptop, so as well as putting up images to illustrate the points I’m making, I can also graphically demonstrate some of the techniques used by the media industries to manipulate photographs and create impossible ideals of beauty.
It seemed like quite an interesting thing to do and posters have been put up, press releases have been released and I’ve already had a few people tell me they’re really looking forward to it.
It’s 1.15am on Sunday night/Monday morning and I’ve suddenly had a massive reality attack
Don’t worry. I’ll be fine.
I’ve given loads of talks and presentations on a variety of subjects before now.
I’ll be fine.
