An interesting evening awaits us this coming Tuesday and it is hoped that most of our members are able to attend, i.e., both the Photo Group and Movie Makers.
Our Guest Speaker is Geoff Smith “The Man from Oz”. Geoff says that he owes his love of photography to his father Max, who was a keen photographer as a young boy back in the late 1930’s/early 40’s, encouraging Geoff’s interest in his childhood years, helping him with both colour transparency and black & white darkroom work.
Whilst working these days almost exclusively in the digital medium, Geoff says that his grounding in the unforgiving colour transparencies has taught him to take care in order to get things right “in camera” rather than relying on post processing. (This is something that we all should aspire to) !
Geoff has recently expanded his photography into the field of infrared, which has extended his possibilities with his love of black & white, and also aerial landscapes, thanks to the addition of a drone. He has now added two new galleries covering these genres.
Don’t miss this opportunity to gain an insight into someone else’s photographic world and be inspired.
See you all on Tuesday.
