Next Tuesday (24th January) sees the return of our popular Talking Pictures open evenings. The theme this week is ’This Urban World’ – we’ll be looking at and talking about photographs that represent the urban landscape we inhabit.
Before we embark on our new series, here is a tiny selection from the Autumn 2011 series where we covered diverse subjects ranging from The Colour Red to Sky, Autumn, Sense of Place, Weather and, my favourite, Humour and Observation.
First up is this beautiful frosty Lake District scene captured by Stewart ‘Stewpot’ Brown…
A wonderfully atmospheric forest landscape, well seen and well exposed.
Next, another Lake District landscape by Mike Ratcliffe, showing interesting use of reflections…
Janet (Mrs T) made some valuable contributions to the discussions. Here are a couple of Janet’s images from the Autumn and Humour & Observation evenings…
Paul Sherwood, a newcomer to digital SLR photography made some great contributions and asked all the right questions…exactly what Talking Pictures evenings are all about. This colour landscape captured at Lyme Park was straight from the camera; I was able to demonstrate on our ‘Sky’ evening how it could be improved with a little cropping and post-processing in Photoshop:
Every Talking Pictures starts off with a few of my images to set the ball rolling and get the conversation going. Here are a couple of my images from The Colour Red and Humour and Observation evenings….
Last but certainly not least is this evocative image from our very own creative Karrie, captured in one of her favourite places, the Lake District. When I saw this misty Windermere image for the first time it gave me goose bumps, truly capturing ‘A Sense of Place’.
Talking Pictures open evenings are open to all photographers from complete novices to enthusiasts and pros – the only qualification you need is a love of pictures. A token £5.00 donation to our nominated charities is much appreciated. Tea, coffee and biscuits are on us.
Places are limited so book early by contacting Karrie on 0161 428 6749 or email email@example.com
Join in the conversation. We look forward to meeting you.
