3rd January “All you need to know about street photography” Harry Silcock
“I have been an enthusiastic photographer for some 60+ years, having built my own enlarger and darkroom at the age of 16. I joined York Photographic Society in 1963 and left some years later, due to work and other commitments, and was able to re-join again when took early retirement 20 years ago. In the past I have built two large format cameras and I was a late convert to digital photography.”
In his talk Harry will start by looking at the history of street photography and briefly looking at the work of some earlier practitioners. This will be followed by looking at the legal implications of taking photographs in public places. He will be suggesting the best gear to use and his techniques of using it.
The talk will be fully illustrated with some of my street photographs taken in both the UK and abroad.
