15th April: Talk – Minimalism My Way by Neil Scott FRPS EFIAP/b DPAGB

Very many thanks to Neil for his outstanding talk last night covering an overview of different aspects of his photography such as People and Street, ‘Candids’, Still Life,  and concentrating on his Surreal Abstracts and Minimalism work.    Neil spoke about having  “obsessive ideas” such as Metallographs, Household Geometry, Frames and Red. He works in sets and highlighted where each image works best as a print rather than projected.  It It was fascinating to see his minimalist, witty and beautifully photographed work.  It was a truly enjoyable and inspiring evening.


Next week we are at Century for our annual Panel of Prints and Open competition which will be judged by Peter Cox, Tring Camera Club.

Have a good week – whatever the weather!

8th April: Workshop

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to our members’ workshop.

These informal critique evenings are invaluable in helping us to improve and hone our skills by providing feedback in a positive and constructive way.  It is also one of the benefits of being in a club where open discussion is encouraged.

Next week we are back on Zoom for a talk by  Neil Scott – Minimalism My Way’.

In the  meantime have a good week.
