I have been advised that there was a good turnout at the evening shoot last Thursday when the Dalkeith County Park was visited, some areas of interest was the Orangie, some old wizened trees and the highlight was a cow who had got its head stuck in a fence, some good ‘head shots’, but remember the portrait competition is for ‘humans’ only, so you will need to Photoshop some make up on.
The next shoot will be on TUESDAY 2ND AUGUST and it will be a visit to the Velodrome at Meadow Bank, where hopefully Joe will get us in ‘on the ringside’, so a great opportunity to get some shots of cycles ‘flashing by’. Meet Fisherrow 7pm, latest.
Remember to visit the library exhibition which will be moving on from Port Seton to Gullane on Saturday 16th July for two weeks and then on to Portobello. Next year I would like to see at least one image from each club member represented, so in March/April we will be looking for your contribution.
The Fringe in August is one of the best opportunities for street photography, although candid shots are really good, do ask the performers if you can take their photo and you normally then get their full co operation, especially if you show interest in ‘their show’ and take a flyer.
