Steven who’s runs the Av group is away on the 30th Jan., so their presentation will now take place on the 23rd Jan and Anita & Kevin will show their work on the 30th Jan.
The club has now purchased some modern studio equipment, currently there is a ‘Portrait Group’ which six members belong to, with the equipment the club now have it would be easy to have a further group – please let me know if anyone is interesting in being involved in another group.
Last night we welcomed Richard Bingham who is Secretary of Edinburgh Photographic Society, Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, An excellent member of the International Federation of Photographic Art and has received many gold medals for his images.
Richard judged for us in March at the four way inter-club meeting between Beeslack, Haddington, Midlothian and ourselves who triumphed on the night!
He gave his presentation on ‘Figures in the Landscape, Landscape in the Figure, showing a range of images using professional models in studio and outside locations. He puts a lot of thought into setting up the shoot and makes careful use of lighting in order to get the best effects. Thus creating tasteful and quality images many of which have done well in competitions with a good number of gold medals being awarded.
Next week we have our ‘Human Portrait Print Comp’ judged by Sandy Cleland. I hope that last night and my suggestion of setting up a second ‘Portrait Group’ will inspire more members.
