This lively and hugely entertaining club night featured images captured by the 5, member groups that ventured out into the City centre on November 4th armed with cameras, tripods and a challenging brief set by Fraser Colman. The conditions were difficult, time was limited, the creative juices flowed, and there was much to admire in the results of their efforts. The ‘Brad Group’ was foolish enough to win the most votes cast and earn the task of setting the competition guidelines for next season.
After the break members were given revealing insights into the photographic journeys, preferences, and work of members Ken McGrath and Alan Philips. This is a great way to get to know fellow members better and see more of their work. It will surely feature in future programmes.
Ken’s journey from work based photography in nuclear power stations to his growing passion for the great outdoors and landscape photography was peppered with memorable images. Alan’s tribute to the influences of the late Dave Bleasdale, the resultant stirrings of his ‘inner Dali’ and his evangelic desire to get us all to look at our immediate surroundings with new eyes and see beauty in the mundane, delighted and entertained an appreciative audience.
