Photographic Society August 2020 Report
Each month AD&DPS have a ‘Club Night’ when we have a presentation, currently by Zoom and also a ‘club only’ look at our own images which we have taken throughout the last month.
Our August ‘Club night’ meeting took us close up and personal into the world of macro photography with Robert Harvey in his zoom presentation titled ‘Small is Beautiful’. He shared his collection of images of butterflies, bugs and orchids that were outstanding as well as sharing what camera settings he used and how he took them to encourage us to have a go. Robert was able to give other technical advice including composition and lighting. Robert demonstrated that finding subjects to photograph and then taking images of their life cycle and behaviour in their own habitat could produce some amazing images – as can be seen on his website www.naturalworldphotography.net
Our next Club night is on Zoom on Wednesday 2nd September at 7:30 pm when we will have a presentation by Astrid McGechan on Landscape Photography. If you’d like to join in please contact the Society through our website.
Our monthly topic title for our own photographs for August is ‘Garden Wildlife’ when we get together on the third Wednesday of the month and share these images together, at the moment on Zoom, when we chat in a casual way about what we created, offering praise, advice and suggestions. Post meeting, the images are put on our website www.addphoto.co.uk for all to share. Take a look.
