Our final meeting of the year before Christmas. The meeting will begin with a silent auction of donated photographic goods, followed by a fiendish quiz devised by David Beverly. Mince pies and other goodies will be available during the interval.
Our intended speaker, Ian Day, has had to cancel his visit to YPS this coming Wednesday. At short notice we have booked David Goodier who will give his talk on "Portraiture made simple" Ambient light and Off Camera Flash Guide.
David is a professionally qualified Yorkshire & Lake District Wedding Photographer, and has also attained a ‘personal’ qualification with the Royal Photographic Society. For many years he has been actively teaching photography in various formats to Camera Clubs, on an individual basis and also as a Guest presenter to local schools
David is also an Approved Photographic Judge & Lecturer for the Yorkshire Photographic Union
He now teaches and runs Landscape Photography courses and also hosts Lake District Landscape Photography Holidays where he takes over a cottage for a few days at a time. David says ‘if you’re awake on one of my courses or holidays then you’re either shooting or talking about photography – not a second is wasted !!!’
Being a Yorkshire & Lake District Wedding Photographer is nothing short of an honour and a great pleasure of his. David says that, naturally, the skills needed for Landscape & Wedding Photography alike encompass a whole range of technical and artistic requirements, meaning I’m just as much at home shooting portraits, headshots, and even creating artistic images of cars.
Elly Ross will be judging the digital images open competition and also the John Saville competition for images taken within the York City boundary.
Formula 1 motor racing is followed closely by millions of fans around the world and Graham loves to share his knowledge and experiences as a professional motorsport and motoring writer. He engages with audiences via his informative but lighthearted talks, all supported by eye-catching images.
A graduate linguist and member of the Guild of Motoring Writers, Graham is the Formula 1 correspondent for the Yorkshire Times newspaper and the motoring and motorsport writer for Excelle magazine, having previously written for Autosport, Motorsport News and various other publications for the last 20 years.
The second of this season’s project nights. Members will be showing up to 5 photos on the subject of sport. A whole range of sports are expected to be represented including cycling, swimming, cricket. Even chess might be included given a sufficiently broad definition of sport.
Members select two photos from six previously provided images (see below) and use their post processing skills to demonstrate how the images can be improved on or altered to provide a personalised vision. A chance to see what can be done using Lightroom, Photoshop and other image manipulation tools.
Paul is a widely published nature photographer based in Leeds. His work has been used by many magazines, books and calendars. Paul also run workshops (his own and for Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (YWT)) and tours abroad to Iceland and Serbia. He started taking pictures in his teens and is a completely self-taught photographer. Paul also write articles on various nature subjects.
A trend in his talk will be how he maximises his time during the year to concentrate on specific projects and images. This will include
- working my local patch
- using the wildlife calendar for timing
- specific projects: both home and abroad
An opportunity for those members who went on the visits to Drax and/or Saltwick Bay to show the results of their efforts. Up to 5 photos from each visit from each member.
