Meeting: Thursday 1 June 2017

Plans for our next meeting include showing members' images of the (1) night sky, (2) weather and (3) their mobile phone images (see below) plus a slide show of a photographic sortie to the Camargue.

Our last meeting was about mobile phone photography, increasing used by even the professionals, so yet another area of photography to try and get out heads around.  Chair Derek Hawkins had set a challenge of ten subjects for everyone to take around Lacock and fortunately the evening turned out warm and dry.  

Back at the hall, there was discussion about what people had taken, how they taken the subjects, their interpretations and about useful apps.  A further challenge was for all to work on those images using editing tools on their phones for review at our next meeting.  Member David Sage and Bob Gabbott gave presentations on their mobile phone images, especially panoramas.

Meeting: Thursday 18 May 2017

Our next meeting will look at Smartphone photography and, assuming the weather allows, will include a ramble round Lacock with our phones at the ready!

Our last meeting, on 4 May, included post-Tribattle and post-Exhibition discussions and started our thoughts about future programming and summer shoot locations.

The main part of the evening looked at the subject of timelapse with great contributions on technique and equipment plus examples from both Derek Hawkins and Pete Shaw.  Both simpler and more complex solutions on how to take timelapse were demonstrated.

Three excellent timelapse by Philip Male were also shown - of the mists swirling around Corfe Castle, the dawn in Pewsey Vale and Avebury Winter Solstice.  He sets his alarm clock very early .....

Annual exhibition - the results!
