14th May: Audio Visual Techniques – an Evening with Alan Colegrave

Many thanks to Alan for an interesting and entertaining evening showing us, through short films and audio visuals, how is vast experience as Film Producer, TV Producer , Director and programme maker influences his work.

His past Audio Visual successes “Gentle Protest” (CACC Winner) and “An English Event”(CACC HC) were particularly relevant examples – each showing the importance of a good story, good photography, and story line or subject matter being ‘something different’.

Alan’s talk brought Audio Visual making alive and is certainly a useful way to think about photography in terms of ‘projects’  which would make challenges such as ‘panels’ and ‘sets’ much easier.

7th May: Annual Panel of Prints Competition

Very many thanks to everyone who entered last night’s competition which was judged with aplomb by Colin Southgate FRPS DPAGB.

Congratulations to Julia Wainwright who retains the Panel of Prints Trophy for her “Bald Eagles in Motion”; second place went to Alice Kass for “Presidential Guard” and Dave Martin’s “Out and About in London” third. All the entries were well conceived and executed and the work involved is much appreciated.

We thank Colin not only for his excellent judging but also for showing us some of his own inspirational work, rounding off a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

30th April: Talk: Abstracts, Patterns and Art in your Eyes by Damon Guy

Very many thanks to Damon for a thoroughly interesting, informative and thought provoking lecture tonight. Damon led us through the definition of abstract photography, the ‘Elements of Art’ and ‘Principles of Art’ with examples and explanations.

His talk was definitely food for thought leaving us with ideas for exploration in abstraction in our own photography.
