Speaker – Erica Oram – Zoom Presentation

22/04/2021 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Erica Oram visits us via Zoom, and her presentation topic will be titled The View From Here.

It is about making the most of your photography in everyday life by looking beyond the obvious and being a bit creative.

A Little bit about Erica:-                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Photography became a keen interest for me in the late 1990’s when I was given my first SLR.  I am a member of Sheffield Photographic Society and I enjoy doing judging for and giving talks to camera clubs throughout Yorkshire and the North East Midlands.

My photography is centred around landscape, pictorial and street photography.  I like to use my photography to make a personal interpretation of ‘whatever is in front of me’, enjoying the challenge of finding the less obvious subject matter and compositions.  I find I am either making simple images which make the most of shapes, lines, colour and light or I am making images which provoke a question, tell a story, or create a mood.

7pm start, Zoom invitation will be issued close to the date of the presentation.

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
