Alex Hare Photography

Last Thursday evening Reflex photographic club had the pleasure of a lecture from Alex Hare. Alex is a professional landscape photographer from Whistable.

Alex’s lecture began with a display of a some of his images, with an informative description of the process behind each shot as well as a description of why he liked it.

The lecture was interspersed with videos taken “in the field” showing how Alex prepared for some of his shots; often showing how the element of luck paid a small part in some shots.

Alex finished off with a discussion of his post processing workflow. Unfortunately there was not time for Questions/Answers.

We hope to invite Alex back next year for more stunning landscape photography….

You can find his blog, discussions and photographs as well as dates for workshops at this site.

Marrutt printing evening.

Last night at the Reflex Photographic Club was a true “print fest”.

We had a superb evening courtesy of John Read from Marrutt, a professional inkjet and paper company based in East Sussex. John started the evening with a brief description of Marrutt’s history from cabinet making, darkroom equipment and finally to the professional inkjet inks and papers that are the mainstay of the companies trade.

This was followed by an informative session on “darkroom style” printing from an inkjet printer. John finished off with a demonstration of the new Pro Photomount system for displaying prints and a Question and Answer session.

The evening was further enhanced by the sale of discounted Marrutt papers and Pro Photomounts, before the official “Black Friday”.

It was also very nice to see so many members from other local Photographic clubs on the night, a chance to speak to other photographic enthusiasts. I hope you found the evening as entertaining as the Reflex members did. I hope we can have similar evenings in the future.

Ronald Packman

It is with deepest regret that I have to inform you that one of our long standing members, Ronald (Ron) Packman, sadly passed away early Monday morning.


Despite a long standing illness Ron was a frequent and very active member of the Reflex Photographic Club and was the “go to” person for help with photographic prints, both darkroom and digital.


I will keep you informed of the date for Ron’s funeral for those who wish to pay their respects. I am sure all pour thoughts go out to Ron’s family at this difficult time.

JPEG vs RAW evening.

Last night was the 2nd Reflex meeting of  the season.

We were very grateful to John Walsh for presenting a lecture entitled “JPEG vs RAW”. The lecture was very informative, even to those members who had some prior knowledge of the RAW process.

There was a short introduction to the benefits or otherwise of each image format and some practical demonstrations of some of the powerful tools available to RAW users. There was even a section on Black and White conversion in RAW which could prove very useful to members wishing to enter the John Amey Print competition in a months time (theme – Black and White).

Looking forward to the next meeting on 1st October which is the “Reflex Cup” digital competition. Hope to see you all there.
