Special Interest Group Workshop – Light Painting

Special Interest Group (SIG) night: It’s always a joy when members take over to lead on one of their particular areas of photography skill. Such was the case on Thursday as Neil took a strobist session on “painting with light”.

Gathering at a, now very rare, location with minimal light pollution, Neil showed how to combine non-specialist and readily available LED lighting with long shutter speeds, to create various different light effects.

He was also on hand to give advice as members split into teams to put the theory into practice. We had “fires”, orbs and light writing amongst others. A fun time was had by all and many skills learned.

Ann Miles presents her “DigitalArt” talk

Ann Miles visited the Club on Thursday 6 October to present her talk entitled “DigitalArt”.

Swans by Ann Miles

” Swans by Ann Miles

It was a very engaging talk starting from the very first photographic manipulations back in the 1830’s to the present opinions on photo manipulation.

Ann showed both prints and digital images of her own within the presentation and it was fascinating to see some of the images creation from the beginning.

Particular favourites of the members included a panel of landscapes that were created from sand patterns and another panel of old dolls.   Whilst the images looked superb on the screen seeing them printed really brought the quality home and Ann’s choice of paper emphasised the images in just the right way.

Ann was educational, informative and very entertaining and a speaker that is highly recommended to other clubs that are looking for speakers for their upcoming seasons.
