Impromptu Members Night.
Due to a mix up with bookings we had an opportunity for our members to have an impromptu member's night.
Stepping into the breach came Bill and Margaret Stephens and Lauren Clayton. A couple of others were willing but due to time limitations could not be fitted in.
Bill and Margaret did an excellent double act presentation of their photography. Bill showing a variety of images from his many international acceptances and Margaret interspersing with her images from similar locations and still life. Bill went on to show his latest passion. Turning his images into "works of art" with new filters. Bill admits he would love to be able to use the brush and pallet but this medium gives him immense pleasure. Margaret's favourite is still life and her images reflect the hidden artist in her work, always finding a new or different slant on the subject. she also give inspiration to members new to photography. A very good presentation by them both.
Lauren Gave a presentation based around her visits to "Loud & Flashy" a studio in Ashington. Where she has been learning lighting techniques and set ups. Her presentation covered the various types of lights and the finished image. One such "set" involving a paddling pool of cold water and a BIG bag of Glitter, which created some "Shimmering" shots. Not always behind the camera Lauren also showed some images of her being roped in as "the model".
A big thank you to you all for saving the night and also those who missed out this time round.
