Face To Face Meetings

On Thursday, 15th July, we were able to hold our first face-to-face meeting in well over a year.

Considering the restrictions we have had in society recently, it was quite relaxed and uplifting to be able to chat will fellow members.

Our speaker for the evening, Steve Lightfoot, gave a very different presentation on the history of Victorian photograph albums, and the history of some of the people featured in some o the albums he had collected himself.

Our next meeting on 22nd July, will be the judging of our first print competition. Good luck to those who have entered.

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.
