On September 10 at 7.30pm, the club will resume its 2013/14 season at Morpeth Methodist Church when new Chairman, Steve McDonald, will give an introductory presentation.
The programme for the new season will include various speakers on subjects including: Painting with Light, Travel Photography – of Samurais and Geishas, Advanced Photoshop Effects, Urban Exploring and Natural History, HDR, the Myths and Facts, An Evening with John Thompson and members’ holiday photographs.
In addition, there will be inter-club and internal competitions, audio-visual presentations and teaching sessions on digital techniques, as well as practical and social nights.
Included in this year’s programme is the third Morpeth Camera Club Spectacular event and the club is very pleased to announce that it will be presented by Barry Payling, have the title Wild Britain and take place on Tuesday, November 12, at Morpeth Methodist Church, starting at 7.30pm.
‘Wild Britain’ will be an evening of inspirational photography with a selection of outstanding slides and an entertaining commentary by Mr Payling, who will take those in attendance on a visual tour using traditional photography techniques to demonstrate the art of ‘pure photography’ – the technique of producing images ‘in the camera’ without any computer manipulation or indeed the use of photographic filters on the camera.
It is an art that he pursues relentlessly and a vast percentage of the photographs he takes are produced without even the use of a light meter.
Tickets for this event will be available at the Morpeth Tourist Information Office, from club members or on the door on the evening, subject to availability.
