This is a ‘Face to Face’ meeting on location.

There will be no meeting at Castle Park or via Zoom on this evening.

We are making a special visit to a photographic studio in Birkenhead.

The small group will have access to models in a variety of settings, You do not have to be a studio expert and guidance will be available if you need it.

Numbers are restricted so please contact Ian or Marie as soon as possible if you want to attend. There will be a charge for the evening of around £15 to cover the studio and model costs.

I’m sure, we will come away with an interesting selection of images.

Any questions or to book a place contact Ian or Marie

Showcase 2 – ‘Scapes for LichtVast @ via Zoom
Feb 7 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

[table id=104 /]

This evening is a non-competitive evening showcasing members ‘scapes images.
The definition of ‘scapes is simply landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes; so urban or rural.

Things will be slightly different to normal “showcase” events in that the images will go forward to represent us in the image exchange with our sister club in Flanders, LichtVast, and as such will also need to have a description attached to each image. 

Note that new entries are allowed (of course) but also any ‘scape images entered in competition this season would also be eligible. Also entering in this “showcase” does not preclude that same image being entered in any competition later as long as it fulfils the criteria.

LichtVast will comment on our images in a few weeks and we will comment on theirs too when we have them and remebr to add your extra comments to give their club members some idea of the context.

We look forward to seeing your ‘scapes.

 

Any questions contact Ian or Marie

In this short session, I hope to inspire members to experiment and explore new photographic and editing techniques. It is also a reminder of some of the techniques illustratred by our speaker earlier in the season.

The evening is divided into sections:

  • What do we think abstract photography is?
  • Discuss its many different styles, techniques and a little about the photographers who made abstract imagery.
  • What are the main challenges when photographing in an abstract style?
  • Lots of examples of abstract works to inspire you
  • How can our club produce a series of members’ abstract photographic works for us all to share and display later in the season?

This is an evening of two parts.

PERSONAL PROJECTS  14.03.2022

 

 

At the beginning of the season, we all were allocated Personal Projects to work through during the year.  To spot interesting things and quickly catch them on camera.

We have done this for a number of years and have produced some very interesting series.

We can’t wait to share your work.

We will be opening an upload site later.
