Club Meeting – Lecture/Workshop Evening

By | | No Comments

Personal Project Presentation


Throughout 2018 a small group of club members have been developing personal projects on subjects that interest them as photographers. During monthly collaborative get-togethers progress has been discussed, suggestions made and advice followed…..sometimes. Much has been learned and skills have been honed.

Tonight is an opportunity for this band of dedicated shooters to present their project in whatever form to the club as a whole. They may talk about their approach to their very different and individual projects, how they went about capturing the images, the challenges they faced and how they arrived at the final product, whether that be projected images, prints or a photobook or in one case in particular, an informative photo laden database of intrepid trekking.

So please show your support to this group by attending this special event. After seeing their accomplishments you may even be inspired to join the group in 2019. There is much to be learned about photography and oneself by undertaking a personal project of your own. This group will support and guide you no matter your level of expertise.

For those presenting their work, this evening should be an intimate conversation about you and your work. It’s not only about pictures you shot, so tell the story, catch the interest of those listening. What is the subject; why you started work on that project; why it matters and what is the importance of that work for you. Whatever feedback you receive – whether round praise, practical advice or constructive criticism from your peers – you will learn something from all them but some will be more useful than others. Just remember that the first to believe in your work must be you.

Participants:

John Stein – Print Project – “Working Horses and Working Men”

Peter Law – AV and PhotoBook – “Mundane Works”

Stan Bowles – Print Project – “Beautiful Women I have Known”

Daryl Fisher – AV – “Four Days on Fraser”

David Sedgman – Print Project – “Glimpses of Beauty”

This will be the first get-together for those interested in developing a personal photographic project over the year. You will have the opportunity to chat about what you have in mind and how you might go about achieving your goal. You will have support from like-minded members to assist you in achieving the best result possible.

There is no competition involved in this, it’s all about your own personal achievement. Your project  can be about anything that excites you and it can be presented in any format you wish, there are no restrictions. If you are wondering how to even begin a project or get an idea about what you might do, there will be video advice available by high level photographers from all over the world who are working on projects of their own.

So come along if you are committed to this endeavour, numbers have to be limited because my house is not huge but I will do my best to accommodate you.

Peter, Programs

Please RSVP via this website so we know who’s coming!

So far we have 11 members in this fun group with room for more. So if you missed our last meeting and have some interest in joining the group or just want to find out how we operate and collaborate with each other then please come along.

There are many interesting projects being undertaken already and others are about to start, so progress will be discussed by the authors and assistance given by the group. Bring along your images.

This is a great means of increasing your photographic knowledge in a relaxed and collaborative setting where competition and egos are left at the door. My greyhound can sniff out a huge ego from 100 metres. Your level of photographic expertise is totally irrelevant. Apart from the projects any and all “matters photographique” are discussed.

And please, no more TimTams, biscuits and dips for the moment….we have a bit of a glut which we need to get through.

Club Meeting – Guest Speaker/Workshop Evening. Shaftesbury v Aspley International Challenge, followed by “The Construction of an Image”

By | | No Comments

Overseas Challenge – Shaftesbury CC v Aspley CC

This International Challenge  between our club and the Shaftesbury Camera Club in the UK takes place this year. A judge is appointed by each club to score 24 PDIs, the first 12 being monochrome. The overall scores are then combined to determine the winner. Last year, it was a very close match with Aspley winning by just one half point out of 393. Tonight, Paul Tilley will show the images from both clubs and give an insight into each judge’s comments and scores. The winning club will then be announced. Aspley Camera Club again? Who knows.

 

The Construction of an Image

In the second half of the evening Peter Law will take you through his own process of creating an effective image from initial planning of the shot, to shooting method and lighting technique, to post processing and refinement using Lightroom software.
