The challenge was to show either three shots taken from one spot at the last meeting, or three shots taken anywhere from the same spot without moving so, we started off with our show of members' photos. The final option was following John's excellent talk at the last meeting on Alternate Reality Photography, so quite a number of members have taken to this type of art.
Here are some examples:
|Janice created this scary pic called 'Visitors From Space'|
|Josie created this Fantasy|
|And Rosalind came up with this one, entitled 'Shipwrecked'|
|And Jean created this 'Scary Telephone Box' image|
|Sheila concluded the show with this number 'Fishy Fishy'|
As you can see there is a lot of imagination and talent in this club of ours, well done everyone.
Our guest speaker this morning was Des Lund, Des Wilkinson's golf buddy a retired professional photographer who worked for many years not only in the racing industry, but also in universities and hospitals where he headed their medical and dental photography divisions. His talk was called FOCUSING CLOTH TO DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY.
