Speed & Motion
On the 16th September, members were treated to a talk on Speed and Motion by Paul Dunmall, CPAGB. Showing a whole range of fast motion subjects, Paul disclosed the various techniques he has developed in tackling such challenging photography and showed the results of his progression and development. He also emphasised the importance of persisting with subjects whose difficulties are not always fully understood or appreciated in Club circuits. The digitally projected presentation was supplemented with a stunning collection of prints and the evening was much enjoyed by members. Encouraged by Paul's enthusiasm, the Club looks forward to applying some of his hard earned knowledge which he so generously shared with us. 17/9/13
On the 9th of September, Keith Gibson opened our first ever season of lectures and shared his love for the landscape, whether on his doorstep near Lewes or further afield, including Spain and Ireland. It was most enlightening to hear him explain in detail what drove him to choose a particular element of the landscape or a particular angle. Keith showed a strong affinity with the landscape through his subtle use of light which emphasised contours and patterns and the presentation was packed with advice on tackling this type of photography, providing valuable information likely to help many of us. 12/9/13
First Night of Season a Big Success.
The first night of Season 1 for Seven Sisters Camera Club was held at St.John's Parish Hall last night. The evening was well supported and with over 35 members now signed up, the new Club's future looks as bright as ever.
The evening's entertainment included an informal small print competition and a demonstration of the Club's new digital projector. The programme for the year was presented along with an introduction to members 'lecturettes' which are to be a regular feature.
The excitement in the room was palpable as members absorbed their collective achievement. The Club is now meeting weekly on Mondays and is welcoming new members. 3/9/13
