14/10/2021 – Members Evening “Memories”

This week we had a super evening of member’s memories and there was a lot of discussion covering: photography through the ages, recreating images from the past, restoring photos, digital manipulation such as colorising, photography’s part in false memories, and photography’s role in recording. 

All really interesting topics coming out of talking about our photos.

23/09/2021 – Summer Challenge Top Picks

This week our very own Su Flood took us through the images she selected from the 6 summer challenges that were run over the summer break (June, July and August 2021). 

It was a super opportunity for members to see Su’s top picks across the challenges and learn from her critique and commentary with the aim of improving our photography. 

16/09/2021 – Long Exposure Photography with Derek Michalski

This was the Club’s first physical lecture of the season (and in a very long time), on Long Exposure Photography with Derek Michalski.

Derek’s presentation provided a lot of useful tips, tricks and inspiration for members. You can find out more about Derek and the long exposure magazine he is editor of LEMAG from his website: www.derek michalski.com

Hopefully we will see some long exposure images featuring in this season’s competitions.
