Our first speaker of the new season was the highly respected judge and a member of the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union’s Executive Committee, Bob Dennis.
Bob’s presentation was primarily aimed at achieving better results in photographic competitions, but his advice was equally applicable to those simply wishing to improve their photographic skills.
- Some of the gems that we gleaned were:
- Bob Dennis has no images on the internet at all
- There is such a thing as "competition heroin"
- Turning images upside down sometimes helps (to see glitches, not permanently!)
- Only use white, black or ivory mounts
- Journalistic shots are all about the face
He then proceeded to show us a series of stunning images do demonstrate his points. An enjoyable and stimulating evening.
