MEETING 30.06.22

MEETING 16.06.22

Pete Shaw kicked the evening off with a detailed look at Photographic Exposure.  With the advent of a new generation of mirrorless cameras he advised that we need to be aware of the factors which could influence the final exposure of our chosen subject.  A useful discussion followed which could help us think more deeply before pressing the button.

Our review of images taken in the previous month of May followed which showed how widely our members' interests spread.  We are blessed with members who take fine images of nature, landscape and travel,  and we also have those who prefer 'planes, trains, people and architecture!  A great mix of approaches from which we each benefit.

The final part of the evening looked at images mostly taken on a shoot at NT Holt way back in March, a day of surprisingly bright sunshine and breezes.  Some dusted off their macro lens, most experimented with depth of field, while some spent time observing the wildlife!

MEETING 19.05.22

The evening started with member Danny Wootton presenting a talk and images from his enviable trip to Skye and Harris, capturing well the varying weather, moods and colour palettes of the two islands.

Danny followed this up with his images of grasses, both realistic and interpretive, a challenging subject in the prevailing winds as anyone who has tried it quickly finds out!

Another member, Howard Morland, had set a challenge back in March to photograph St Peter's Church in Langley Burrell, a Grade 1 listed building so an important heritage site in that community.  Those that tried the shoot had to overcome difficulties of low light and tricky compositions.  A small selection of the many images taken is shown below.

The meeting finished with review of the images that had to be taken during the Easter Weekend.  Those submitted covered supermarket marketing, Spring flower beauty, religious celebrations and that fun time, the Easter Egg hunt :)

MEETING 05.05.22

Following a busy two days over the May Bank Holiday presenting our Annual Exhibition, it was back to our usual Club night meeting with first member Ruth Baldwin presenting images from her trip around the West Coast of Scotland.

This was followed by our monthly challenge, and April images naturally included Spring flowers and landscapes getting greener, plus the odd surprise or two!

We were so lucky to have studio session earlier in the year with a member's friend, Lesley, who brought her harvest mice along.  Phil and Philip helped with changes of vegetation and backgrounds - and containing the more adventurous of the mice!  Julia and Amanda also set up some tabletop still life so that members could rotate between shooting mice and still life.  We all took loads of images of the mice - cute is an inadequate word for this delightful subject!
