Photographic Society: October 2022 Report
Terry Pollard, a longstanding member of Kidlington Camera club, came to show us a collection of images from his trip to New Zealand. He travelled in 2019 from the top of the North Island to the toe of the South Island of New Zealand.
His preference is landscape photography and New Zealand offered extensive opportunities for him to capture the changing geography whilst incidentally collecting images of some wildlife, as well as antics of the human variety too.
He caught many landscape photographs ranging from mud pots and geysers, gushing waterfalls, National Parks including volcanoes, interesting rock formations, lush forests and even a 90-mile beach. He trekked the McKinnon Pass on the popular tourist trail on Milford Sound with his rucksack on his back climbing to an altitude of approximately 1150 m, taking in dramatic scenery whilst photographing his ascent and descent which would test many a walker.
His final collection of images were of sculptural shaped icebergs floating in the most beautiful blue waters and also petrified trees down on the Southern Island. These images were my favourites and were an advert for possible future holiday plans.
Our monthly topic slideshow of our own images based on a title selected beforehand followed. This month’s title was ‘Vibrant Colours’ and our member’s images were just that. The variety of photographs based on our member’s interpretation is always interesting to see.
From colourful cotton reels and garden flowers to Neon signed rides and technical studio work. They all demonstrated once again the talent of our current members.
Next month we will be taking images with the title ‘From a different angle’.
Our next AD&DPS exhibition is in the Living Room, Deddington Church, during Deddington Market on October 22nd. EVERYONE IS WELCOME – FREE ADMISSION. SEE YOU THERE.
Our next talk will be on Wednesday 2nd November at 7.30pm at The Adderbury Institute. More details on our website.
