Photographic Society: August 2021 Report

Harry Wheeler-Brand spoke enthusiastically about the ‘Magic of Long Exposure’ at our last meeting. A young professional photographer Harry runs workshops and promotes all things landscape around the East Coast counties of Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk. He published his own guidebook to photography around the East Anglian coast during lockdown. He spoke at length about his techniques, his equipment, and his love of drama in long exposed landscapes. What Harry did stress was doing homework to plan and check the location for weather, position, and composition. He also emphasized how many images he took to achieve the final shot that he was pleased with. Long exposure achieves those dreamy seascapes and cloudscapes; it can be a good foil, along with filters, to eliminate people who might wander into the shot. Harry also introduced us to infrared photography that in post-production can be turned into intense black and white images. One of his tips was to buy good quality filters since expensive camera equipment deserves a quality engineered filter to maintain the image superiority. Do check out for his images.

Our next meeting will be at the Adderbury Institute on 1st September at 7.30pm. Covid 19 protocols will be in place. You are welcome to join us to hear Andreas Klatt talk to us about his photography in China. Check the website for further details. Finally, we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of the beginning of the Society, more about our celebration next month.
