Synopsis of the July 8th Zoom meeting

Here’s what Roger, our 2021 Chair has said about our July 8th meeting:

Well, what a sumptuous evening of local landscapes we enjoyed thanks to our own Stephen Elliott.  Both visually stunning and technically informative, we were treated to a fabulous array of Peak District locations, with a high proportion of photos being taken well before dawn.  Stephen claimed that he’s very lucky with his photography, but as Thomas Jefferson said “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”.

Social Sub-CommitteeRay Fowler is looking for a couple of lady members to balance the male contingent already signed up for the social sub-committee, and Ian Ord is wanting to get an idea on who might be attending ‘Whatever-the-Weather’ at Orlecar Cottage on 8th August and the Christmas Dinner at the Blind Bull, Little Hucklow on 9th December.  Please contact Ray or Ian as appropriate.

Theme for 2022: “Impressions of Reality”It is a tradition that the incumbent Chair sets the theme for the following year’s Exhibition.  So, I have chosen a topic that is close to my heart.  What I’m hoping for is a creative mix of abstracts, rhythms, shapes, patterns, textures, etc.  I look forward to some inventive and inspirational submissions.  Let your imagination run wild!

Next Meeting (12th August) Our plan for the August meeting is to meet up in-person, so we have arranged two outdoor activities: evening landscape photography lead by Karen Frenkel, or photographing inside and outside Roger Thorpe’s garage.  If you’re planning to attend either, please let Keith Brown know which group you’d like to join.
Photography Quote of the MonthScott Lorenzo: “The picture that you took with your camera is the imagination you want to create with reality.”
