18th December Christmas Quiz and Social
A bit of a fun night with a quiz.
It’s A Knockout
No sign of Eddie Waring here but a night with a difference.
A Photographers Year
Stephen Lipton joins us tonight to share what he gets up to in his photographic life. He is an award-winning landscape, fine art and natural history photographer who also has a love for travel photography and waterscapes.
Ever tried to photograph a high-contrast scene, only to be frustrated when you find that the pictures you snapped just don’t do it justice? Don’t worry, it’s not just you. Even with the perfect exposure, there are certain scenes that will always tend to get blown-out highlights, flat shadows, or both. Tonight Doogie Reid will show us some techniques to sort this
Fix the Image
How often have we heard from judges about cropping, minor errors, lightening up areas in our photographs etc. Lets work together and see how we can improve not only our own submissions to competition but those we submit as a club into inter-club challenges.
The second of our Model Nights for the season. Time to try lessons learned earlier this season. Remember your “Hasselblad”
Tonight Simon Wootton and David Meikle will guide us on High Speed Photography. We hopefully will look at smoke trails, water droplets etc. After tonight we should be able to avoid all those blurry images!
Hand in for the Spring Competition
Up in the Sky
We have a visit from Thomas Haywood tonight who will share some of his work and equipment used in aerial photography. Thomas Says, “I’m passionate about the benefits and opportunities drone photography offers. It allows you to capture otherwise unreachable and unattainable images, giving you detailed, high quality images that tell a story you would otherwise never have known.”
My Top Ten
A few of our members will share with us their choice of their favourite images from the good and the great photographers. Their choice may include one of your photographs!
Tonight is the last of the season competitions when the judging will be done by Peter Paterson. Peter is an award-winning and exhibited photographer. He is also a Past President of the SPF. Have a look at his website, it’s well worth it!
Hand in for Cameron Cup, Midlothian Quaich & Arnold Rhodes Trophy
