Dear Sandy Photography Club Members and Friends,
Remembrance Day is the time to reflect on the past, on history, and those people who never come back from war time conflict.
We remember them in November, but there people who constantly think how to make the world better based on past events.
There are many details from history, and these are beautifully captured by an enthusiastic hobbyist who has been working for months, years, bringing the memory of these days to reality.
I have recently met Lee, a very interesting person, who recreates war time scenes in miniature, and documents the scene he is creating, from scenography to the details of equipment.
We as photographers would also like to capture all these moments of history. This is an opportunity to join many passionate people together to tell the stories. Let’s catch these pieces of history by making a photographic documentary of his work.
On this Workshop, we will focus on macro photography, composition and light to get the best scene.
Again, we will use tripods, macro lenses, tubes, etc.
We will meet on Sunday 24 November at 9.30am outside Sandy Library, and then go together to the venue in Potton.
This will be a maximum group of 5 people – please let me know as soon as possible if you wish to attend, by 20 November latest.
This will be on a first come, first served basis. The Workshop will take about 3-4 hours – afterwards, we could go for lunch in a local pub.
All the best to you 🙂
Good news for everyone!
We will discuss our film photography, taken at the last Workshop in Bedford. There will be a mystery element of surprise for everyone, as the films aren’t developed yet. And those members who could not attend the Workshop now can have a chance to try film photography on their own and should bring 3-5 printed 6×4 preview photographs, which they have taken between the workshop and this General meeting.
We are honoured that David H, who recently joined us, has agreed to share with us his experience on image composition. Simply put, composing an image means arranging elements within it in a way that suits the core idea or goal of your work best. Arranging elements can be done by actually moving the objects or subjects.
I cannot wait to see you all again!
