Congratulations go to a newish member, Simon Van-Orden, for winning our Mono competition with his striking image ‘Windmill in the Window’. Thank you to everyone for sending in 50 entries for this competition, standards were quite high!
Congratulations are also due to Rod Taylor for achieving a HC in the WCPF Knightshayes Trophy recently for his ‘Egg-ceptional Friends’.
Our next Zoom meeting on 31st March is a workshop featuring 2 of our members, Max Law and Tom Wallis.
I am now preparing a zoom workshop on Figure and Ground. This will give you an idea of what it's about. The background of your image can be just as important as the subject – it plays a huge part in composing your wildlife and other photography. If the background has any distracting elements, it can greatly detract from the final image by drawing your attention away from the subject. Ideally, as photographers, whether portrait, wildlife or other approaches, we are often looking for a soft, out of focus background isolating the subject. Other alternatives include similarities or relationship with the background. I will be exploring how we create a context for our photographic subject. I will show some images and work of others directly from the net, and then some of my own images as examples of what I'm trying to achieve. I look forward to hearing from members about their approach to context in their work.
I’ll be showing some birdie pics, for a change, and telling you the stories behind them!
