What did you shoot in Winter?
22/3/22 Attendees 30
Imagez club met on zoom last night and the subject was a follow up to a few members presenting ideas on how to keep ourselves from getting bored during winter by following options such as tabletop, projects and getting out into the winter weather to catch frosty leaves and textured scenes.
Sixteen members presented three images and forty-eight images were put forward. Each author discussed where the image was taken and their reason for taking it and in some cases how it could be improved.
Chris commented on the images as we went through them, and club members commented also. There were some beautiful frosty landscapes from David Jones, Steve Allsop, Chris Andrews, Mike Perry and Tami Nunley.
David Gibbs had practiced tabletop using brandy glasses, Kes had photographed an Octopus on a mirror, and Peter a hook with raindrops against a red background all very creative.
Carol and John had strolled into their gardens on a frosty morning to catch frosted Crab-apples, a leaf with beautiful texture on the pond netting and a scene from John’s birdbath with submerged leaves and an old withered apple that looked like an Old Masters painting.
Brian had spent time photographing three lovely models and explained the lighting for each image to the audience.
Derek featured his Red Kites and accompanied his amazing images with a humorous commentary.
Kathy used her Lensbaby lens to capture a lovely soft image of an orchid and another unusual image of the stairs at the Tate gallery. Laurence had a wonderfully calming image of sunrise at Marsworth, and Martin Hommel had been walking in the Scottish Highlands and captured snow topped mountains.
Mike Ward had shot two fire engines and the barn that had caught alight.
He also featured a lovely Sparrow Hawk and David G had captured wonderful Heron with excellent texture on is feathers.
Chris finished an enjoyable evening saying “We are entering the transition from Winter to Spring so get out and see colours changing, look for Butterflies and Bluebells”
