Photographic Society: October 2021 Report

At our last meeting we were treated to a very special look at Yorkshire in the 1960’s by Paul Brewerton, ARPS. During lockdown Paul used the time to look through his archive of negatives. After investing in a scanner, he transferred his old film images into pixels and produced a series of stunning black and white images. It was interesting to see the landscapes of Yorkshire and the Lake District and to hear the fond accompanying stories with each image. They show a much simpler life with very little traffic, horses working the land and all the textures that black and white can create. The main collection was of landscapes, including clean snowy fields with drifted snow against dry stone walls. Paul also showed the contents of run-down tithe barns where old wagons were illuminated by brilliant shafts of light as well as atmospheric stations with steam trains. A truly black and white delight.

Sunday 19th September saw members celebrating together the 15th anniversary of the foundation of the society. Miggy Wild organised a ‘Photo Safari’ around a circuit of villages and venues including a visit to Hinton in the Hedges for the sky diving. Inspiration for image ideas came from titles such as lines and curves, rural life, and transportation. There were some excellent photo opportunities along the route and especially at the airfield. All the participants then met at North Aston House for a sunny picnic, a perfect end to a great day. Photographs are on the website.

You can also visit our website to look at the images submitted for our Annual Exhibition at The Adderbury Institute and Deddington Church if you were unable to visit.

Our next presentation will be on Wednesday 3rd November at 7.30pm at the Adderbury Institute where Robert Harvey, ARPS will talk about photographing Wiltshire. You are most welcome to join us, visit our website for further details.
