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.

    What a stunning collection Angela, this work to me says “Have camera …and my eyes are wide open” 🙂 Great to see you really tackling different ways to crop images and your post production work really enhance the imagery. We are lucky to have you in our camera club!

    What a stunning collection Angela! I love it that you show many interest areas here. Your perspective, post production and use of elements of design is really great! This work says to me “I have a camera and will get out there and use it!” We are very lucky to have you in our CCC team.
