For many years Syd Cumbus has provided a brief review of the week’s meeting to the Lancaster Guardian for their social scene column. We’re now very happy to be able to also present these round ups on the website.
The President of the Society, Christian Cable introduced Lee Metcalfe of Lancaster to present his lecture entitled ‘Perfect Light’ Lee is a local professional photographer who specializes in landscape photography and has enjoyed successful exhibitions of his work in the Ashton Memorial and local galleries plus cover photographs for Lancashire Life and articles for the Outdoor Photography magazine.
He showed a total of 37 images showing Lancaster, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. With each photograph Lee explained his reasons for taking the shot and spoke of his selected locations. Many of the exhibited photographs were taken at dawn and dusk and this is a feature of his specialist approach to landscape imaging. Panoramic images of Buttermere were often multiple frame shots which were then stitched together in Photoshop. Many of the Lancaster images featured the Ashton Memorial with one set showing the memorial building in each season of the year.
The vote of thanks was given by Allan Hartley.
