Dear Friends and Members of SPC 🙂
I have agreed with Sandy Astronomical Society that we could join them during their public viewing event on Thursday 19th March.
However, this is all weather dependant – I will be advised by SAS on the day whether this will go ahead or not.
We are setting up our Workshop XXIII at 6pm at Blunham Playing Fields (MK44 3ND) – please let me know if you are planning to come along. Regardless of the weather, I will be there at 6pm, to check the field for potential future events. If it’s raining, we can go to the pub and review previous photos from previous tasks. Please upload your photos by 9pm on Wednesday 18th March, or bring them on memory stick.
You will definitely need to bring tripod; any lens would be ok, but preferably wide angle; and remote control if you have it. If not, we can use the delay option on your camera. Plus warm clothes and beer money!
You can see more information about SAS on their website: https://gostargazing.co.uk/organiser/sandyas/
I have got more news… and I cannot wait to see you again!
All the best to you!
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 🙂
