Tonight, Gerald Chamberlain from Morton camera Club visited to give us a very interesting and entertaining evening. During the first half he showed us a range of black and white images, beginning with some landscapes and moving on to characters. He talked about the importance of having some interaction with the characters being photographed. Many of the images were re-enactment groups, eg. The Ragged Victorians, Sealed Knott, 40’s weekend. Others were of characters at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Steam Punk Festival at Whitby.
Following the break Gerald showed us many of the infra-red images he now enjoyed taking, many of them taken in Sweden. He also briefly explained his work-flow on the infra-red images, and how he makes use of the dodge and burn tool in Photoshop to lighten and darken areas of the image.
Next week Mike Prince will be giving a talk entitled A Quiet Landscape, and the following week, Stuart McGlennon, also a landscape photographer, will be giving a talk, A Change in Direction.
A reminder that Creative images for our 4th competition need to be handed in by 6th December.
