This meeting is in addition to our regular Platform meeting and is open to all members. The purpose is to look at our own and other photographers' images in greater depth than we are able to do on Thursday afternoons. A great opportunity to extend your learning.
Photography Extra Zoom Meeting - Monday 5th October
This month's Photo Extra meeting was a great example of the variety of interests in our group and how different genres can be appreciated and can inspire people to look beyond their own interests.
Photography Extra Zoom Meeting - Monday 7th September
Seven members joined this month's meeting to continue the format of last month's meeting - each person chose an image by another member from the online gallery and it was then discussed. Clips of a couple of those discussions are shown on the videos below.
The meeting agreed that the time of 5pm for this meeting would continue for the moment. A discussion was held as to further options for developing our critique of photography. It was agreed that a variety of techniques would be used such as:
- each member intriducing one of their images conforming or not to a particular technique (ie rule of thirds)
-members introducing each other to the work of a photographer they admire
- returning to the format of this meeting described above.
Next month's meeting will be on Monday 5th October at 5pm via Zoom. At that meeting Sue and Jenni C will each spend about 15 minutes introducing us to a photographer they admire.
Photography Extra Zoom Meeting - Monday 3rd August
Yesterday was the first time we had held the meeting via Zoom. This time those attending were asked to choose their favourite image posted by another member to the website gallery. Using the wonder of Zoom we were able to display these images. We had an interesting discussion about six images including the photographer telling us about the camera technique used and any post processing work. The discussions included reference to different techniques and learning points. The video clips below cover three of the images.
The overwhelming feedback was positive, that the evening was a good start to our new virtual existence. We will build on this for next month so if you didn't get to join in August please do so on the evening of Monday 7th September
