Members Nights are simply that, once a month one of the members hosts a night for the Group. There are many ways of doing this but it has to be photo related. They can share their own work, book a speaker, do a workshop or watch You Tube Demo’s. Each Member of the group brings their own interests and specialities to the group.
James - Sharing his Passion - Caves and Mines
The first Member Night of the Year and James kindly covered our speaker who couldn’t make it by showing his talk Caves and Mines. The first half was about James adventures below the ground, exploring many caves all over the world. He shared photos of caves some James and the team were the first people to ever see. James explained how difficult it was find access to some and how they built easier access in fields. The beautiful shapes and patterns of the caves walls created by the natural forces of water flowing under the ground.
The second half, was about the manmade underground structures created by miners, from small tunnels too cathedral like caverns, some the size castles. The images showed a variety of structures created over the years to support the tunnel systems. The enormity and beautiful white walls of the tunnels running under the north sea and the vehicles they use to excavate the precious minerals from pick and axe to a JCB.
A great night delivered with the passion of his adventures.
Colin - Sharing his Prints
October brought our first Members Night for the New Season. Colin shared a selection of prints, including his ARPS Panel, a timeless set in colour, shape and people. There was a variety of subjects including his main passions Sport and Street Photography. Many of the images shown were International Award Winners.
The Group really enjoyed the prints and seeing a stunning set of work. Being a small group it allows us chance to chat and ask questions about the prints. Thanks for a brilliant night of Photography.
We see prints from all the Group at Critique Nights throughout the year but seeing a selection of work together in one night really puts it all together.
Keith brought home made cake for his birthday.
