For many years Syd Cumbus has provided a summary of the week’s meeting to the Lancaster Guardian for their increasingly irregular social scene column. We’re now very happy to be able to also present these round ups on the website.
Christian Cable, President of the Society introduced Mick Caddy from Whalley to present his lecture entitled ‘Visiona in Nature’ Mick, a well experienced photographer is a member of Ribblesdale Camera Club and has lectured in Australia and U.S.A.
The talk was presented on slides using entirely natural lighting throughout which enabled him to capture unusual images when photographing directly into the sun. This painting by light approach was illustrated with many landscapes of Pendle Hill in different seasons, flora of the fells and wild life in the Scottish Highlands.
The talk was delivered with great humour and throughout Mick told the members of his successful techniques to produce a different image which may lead to the sale of a picture. The images were taken on both large format and 35mm film cameras.
The vote of thanks was given by Syd Cumbus.
