Last night Carrie Calvert, a member of Carlisle Camera Club, gave us a talk about her wild life photography. Carrie takes most of her images around her home area, with a few from Scotland, and other locations around England; illustrating that you don’t have to visit far flung places to take great wildlife images.
Many of her images are taken at dawn and showed her great patience in getting the shot she wants. She explained that she wanted her images to show the ‘personality ‘of the animal, and this was certainly achieved in many of the images we saw. She also said that the pleasure and satisfaction for her was in taking the images of the animals in their natural environment, not from a hide, or in a set up shoot
Thanks to Carrie for a very entertaining and informative evening.
A reminder that next week Richard Spiers will be our judge for the ‘People’ competition, and images for Image of the Year can be handed in, but the date for this has now been extended to Friday 13th March, when images for NCPF should also be handed in.
Jane will send an e mail reminding members which of their images need to be brought in for Image of the Year.
