Gallery – Angela Booth
Angela Booth began dabbling in the darkroom art of black and white processing and printing at the age of twelve, and has been hooked on photography ever since.
For six glorious years she used incalculable quantities of other people’s chemicals, and a seemingly endless supply of photographic paper, until she had to give up the darkroom at the age of eighteen when she left home. She still misses the wonder and excitement of watching the image appear from thin air. Well, in a tray of developer, to be precise.
While finances and facilities curbed her artistic endeavours for over a decade, her love of the art form never faded. Now, as a forty-something full-time mum, she’s picking up where she left off, albeit with a crummy Canon S90 and not her beloved Pentax from long ago.
Although dreams of owning a DSLR remain just that, she’s having fun pushing the limits of her point-and-shoot camera to see what you can do when you take it off Auto and let it run freely in Manual. She can often be heard screaming at the limits of the S90’s crappy lens and almost non-existent control over depth of field.
All in good time.
Have a look in my Gallery.
