On a cold and wet evening our members ventured out to capture images of the City’s keynote buildings, the Cathedral and Priory Church. Most members took the short walk to the Cathedral where they had access to the public areas and the organ loft. For many this was their first experience of the building which confers ‘City’ status on Lancaster. The interior scale impressed and the range of textures, lighting levels, colours, and architectural detailing provided a welcome challenge for creative shooting. For our new and less experience members the evening provided an opportunity to benefit from the experience of others, and listen and learn about the camera setting, and composition decisions they were making.
Many thanks to Steve Wetherley our Events Secretary for arranging access to the buildings and to our experienced members for their thoughtful and enthusiastic mentoring in both the Cathedral and Priory Church.
