To start off the tenth year of the club, Mick and Dave hosted a practical evening in which members were encouraged to think about taking images in black and white.
This session was part of a short series of evenings where we explore aspects such as what works in B&W, visualisation, camera settings, post-processing and software to enhance B&W images etc, and also served as a lead-in to Kevin’s B&W discussion in October.
So, members were sent out into the wilds of Ockbrook to get some black-and-white images for themselves, having in many cases adjusted their cameras to display b&w on their rear screens. Time was a little tight on this occasion as the light was fading – so they had around half an hour to see what they could come up with.
Then, it was time for a review of one image from each member – done anonymously and straight out of camera – and there was plenty of encouraging and positive feedback to help members with their ‘homework’ for October’s meeting.
As always, the range of subjects and treatments was broad and there were some fabulous images to enjoy.
You can enjoy them again here – still anonymous. Of course, copyright remains with the photographer.
