Chairman's Blog

Hi everyone,

Lasts nights speaker, Richard Fox, gave us a great talk on his view of Dartmoor through his camera and it was good to see that he uses long lenses for landscape photography as well as the ubiquitous wide angle, showing how it can be used to isolate key areas in the view that then encapsulates the simple essence of that scene.

His enthusiasm for photography has put him in the right place at the right time but has on the odd occasion put him in the wrong place at the wrong time but as he points out you sometimes have to take a risk to gain the reward of the more unusual or desirable picture. Nowhere was this more evident than in the second half of his talk when he and his wife went to America to chase storms for a holiday. The shots he obtained of the cloud formations were truly awesome and combined with some time lapse photography produced a finale most of us will never forget, I don’t think I have heard so many WOWS before.

So well done Richard and thank you for a cracking talk.

Our next meeting is a club competition night (Open PDI) so lets see some great images of our own!

Good Luck.

Your Chairman.



PS - Members, we are starting to consider images for external competitions that are coming up in January so we would like you to email any images you'd like considered to - don't be shy, we want as many images as possible from as many members as possible and as soon as possible to have a look at for selection.

A few of the club members had an impromptu day out at Morwellham Quay last Sunday, as you can see, there is a slight cyberpunk theme here.
