Club Meeting 10.10.13

As I guessed I missed a fascinating meeting on Thursday, Lynn has advised me of this fact and I am sure that all the members present felt the same. I copy below her summary.

“What a fantastic session on 3D photography by Denis Alyshev, Denis brought along his own equipment and explained to everyone what he had and why it was used.  He even brought along his recent ebay purchase which was a vintage silver screen which he pulled up straight from the beautiful wooden box.  He used the modern version to show his images though!  He showed us images from his home town in Russia and around his local area – including beautiful winter scenes.  He showed us images of inside his friend’s houses and his own.

He moved on to photos of Japan – beautiful pictures in Autumn.  Then he showed us pictures of Scotland.  His pictures were fantastic.  We were all given 3D glasses to view the images and you felt that you could just reach out and touch them”.

Next week remember to bring along your two entries for the Colour Print Comp. Do not worry about what the judges say, by making an effort and participating in these local club comp. it gives something to aim for, you get guidance (even if you do not agree) which believe me does help in developing your skills.

If most of the entries were perfect no one would benefit and it would be most discouraging and very little would be gained So please make a real effort and put  your work in.

If you cannot make next weeks meeting and you didn’t bring in your prints last week e mail me and I will find a way to have them included, so no excuses!

Next week we also have Libby Smith, as I have mentioned before she is one of the best photographers in Scotland, advising us on mono photography, she will then judge our Black & White comp. in March. So we had better take note of her advice!

I have had an e mail from the National Galleries of Scotland which advises of an exhibition that would be worth making an effort to see: –

At the Portrait Gallery later this month, critically acclaimed Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen showcases her fashion and fine art photographs (In Bloom, in the only UK showing of her retrospective, In and Out of Fashion. Come see how her work has transformed fashion photography in the last decade”

Hope to see most of you next week.
