Presentation by Wickham Photographic Club - Friday 10th December 2021.

Last night Whickham PC, from the north east joined us via zoom to give us a presentation of some of their work.

They started the evening with a presentation entitled ‘4 Lenses and 4 Images’; this showed the types of images taken with 4 different lenses. Those illustrated were a 100-500 zoom lens used by the member for wildlife photography; a 100-400 zoom lens again used for wildlife, but also for some landscape work; a 24-105 lens used for landscape and finally a 105mm macro lens.

The second presentation was entitled ‘Staycation’ which we are all becoming familiar with! We did a tour of the British Isles from the Lake District, to Scotland, London, Yorkshire and back across to the north east coast.

The third presentation ‘Canoe Slalom Racing – Tees Barrage’ showed us a range of images recently taken at a canoe slalom event.

After the break we were shown a range of shots from a presentation – ‘My Passion for Aeroplanes’. We were shown a range of images from fighter jets to passenger jets to hot air balloons. All the shots clearly illustrated the title accurately!

Finally, we were treated to ‘Something completely different’ which we certainly were. During lockdown Trez had started to look more carefully, using a macro lens at flowers; exploring their textures shapes and patterns. From this exploration she moved onto using a polarising microscope to enable her to explore a wide variety of water, crystal and dye shots, with some really interesting results.

Our thanks to all the members of Whickham for a thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable evening.

A reminder that next week Mike Sharples will be taking us on a virtual tour of Iceland.

All images for the PAGB should also be with the External Competition Secretary by next Friday.

There will be no meetings on Friday December 24th or 31st December
