Cam­era club Mem­bers are look­ing for­ward to Fri­day’s meet­ing when the guest speaker will be Colin TrowPoole from Worcester. His in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion stems from a ca­reer of over 40 years, go­ing back to the pre-dig­i­tal era, when pho­to­graphic work was com­pleted in black and white. Us­ing mod­ern tech­niques, his work still uses black and white images and his talk will il­lus­trate how he use this, rather than full colour, to em­pha­sise the at­mos­phere of his work. The meet­ing be­gins at 7.30pm, on Fri­day in St An­drews Par­ish Church, Mount Ste­wart Street, Car­luke and vis­i­tors will be made wel­come. Mon­day evening will see the next work­shop classes for be­gin­ners’ and the topic this time will be na­ture pho­tog­ra­phy. This fol­lows last Fri­day’s meet­ing, when a packed au­di­ence in­clud­ing many vis­i­tors heard from An­drea Har­g­reaves, from Selby in York­shire. She de­scribed her tech­niques which have earned her many awards and in­ter­na­tional distinc­tion. Her un­usual tech­nique in­volved care­fully fus­ing to­gether many dif­fer­ent in­di­vid­ual images to grad­u­ally build an over­all im­age of the con­cept she wishe to dis­play, of­ten with an at­trac­tive ethe­real at­mos­phere. It can of­ten in­volve over 50 hours of work on the com­puter to pro­duce a sin­gle pic­ture. She is par­tic­u­larly well known for her work in fine art and na­ture pho­tog­ra­phy which will be the topic for next Mon­day’s be­gin­ner’s work­shop se­ries.
