 MEETING 25.11.21

Peter Crane ARPS ( gave an interesting and informative talk about his street photography passion.  He talked about his techniques, including shooting from the hip using pre-focus and auto ISO or following an interesting person to get the shot he wanted.   Not the easiest kind of photography without being challenged, he also likes to shoot in colour rather than taking the monochrome route and is prepared to spend time waiting for the right colour combination to come along!

Next meeting: Members' November images and a member's presentation on 20 things from 20 yards, plus our Christmas Social with Jean's super snacks!

 MEETING 11.11.21

Star club member of the meeting was PHILIP MALE, with his presentation 'A Year in the life of a Little Owl family', a distillation of many, many hours of observation and photographing these characterful birds. Afterwards one member commented that watching the story unfold (with excellent stills and videos of course) was 'Better than Autumn or Spring Watch'.  Eat your heart out BBC! (Philip can be followed on Flickr for more wildlife images and other subjects)

Most of our members joined in the monthly challenge to submit one image representing their photography during the previous month.  Finding something different is all part of the fun! A few selected from the entries are shown below:
