Still life workshop

A total of eleven club members signed up for the Still Life workshop on 23rd February. They met in two groups:  5  in the afternoon and 6 in the evening at the home of one of the members.

Some had never though of doing still life images; others came equipped with black velvet backcloths and special clamps. The idea was to use a domestic setting and lighting for still life images to show you don’t need expensive equipment just a bit of imagination and some clothes airers, bulldog clips, Blu tack and drapes.

Everyone experimented and provided helpful suggestions to the others. Several people had the upcoming “Abstract” competition in mind. Plants, bottles,shells, jam jars, shoes and  chocolates all featured. Some of the photo subjects were later eaten by the workshop members ! People seemed to enjoy the experience and said they had learned something.
