Competition Judge - JOHN TIMBRELL ARPS


John has been a keen photographer since he acquired his first camera more than 40 years ago. Once introduced to black and white photography he began processing films and producing his own prints. It was his professional background in science that attracted him to developing and printing.
Consequently, he has always had a special fondness for black and white photographs. He believes that they convey different messages and moods to colour photographs as they isolate the textures, key elements and composition of the picture.
John now uses digital cameras but only does minimal post camera alteration such as changing contrast and increasing or decreasing shadows or highlights if appropriate, and sharpening in post-production editing software.
Now retired, John is able to spend much more time exploring photography. He doesn’t specialise in any particular area of photography, but simply photographs the things he sees that interest him, be it a landscape, a small detail, people engaged in an activity or a part of a building. However, he does have a particular liking for textures, shadows, wood and small details. He likes to produce photographs which show an unexpected angle or viewpoint or a part of a whole, so it is not immediately apparent what it is. His ARPS panel was of reflections in water.
Recent projects are self portraits, capturing movement with very slow shutter speeds and street photography.
John is an active member of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and of Imagez Camera Club, Weston Turville, Bucks.
