Bruce Pickering, a BPS old boy, with the assistance of his wife, who managed the projected images, provided us with a most interesting and entertaining evening. Bruce, who specialises in wildlife photography, spent the first part of his presentation demonstrating the various pieces of kit and comfort gear that he uses during the sometimes long wait that is required to catch the desired image. He imparted many useful tips for the would be wildlife photographer, such as using extension tubes on long lenses so as to increase the image size by bringing the focus point closer than the lens would otherwise allow.
This was promised by all who had listened to Oliver Wright to be a good evening. They were slightly misleading - it was an excellent evening.
Oliver presented his talk with a mix of humour, factual and technical information. His images were from his latest year of photography - hence the title "My Year". Most of the images were taken in the north of Sweden and showed the beauty of the country in the dark wintry nights.
1st of October was our second training evening of the year - this time on Still Life photography.
Four of our memebers put together differing still life set-ups for us to practice our skills on all the time thay were offering advice on alternative ways of producing a good image.
Rais shoed us the difficulties of taking images of objects on reflective surfaces, and using additional lighting to get the best out of the scene.
