Wednesday 20th June
In June we have Maythem Ridha, Photographer and Filmmaker
He will be talking about shooting the Middle East and North Africa and
his book Beyond Moments: Morocco. In his photo book Maythem takes us on
a visual adventure in search of the spirit of Morocco and, in the
process, discovers a positive and hopeful aspect of the human condition.
Vanda started by telling us about the 365 project and how difficult it
is to publish a new picture every day. However a bit of pressure works
wonders for the creativity and we were treated to a selection of great
images which were captured on the hoof, many of them involving water and
puddles. These were followed by pictures from Vanda's home country, the
Czech Republic. Her night-time shots of the Charles Bridge in Prague
were just stunning.
In August we have some photographers experiences of entering photographs
for the CPAGB Award. This is the most nerve-racking award you can apply
for in photography. Find out how they got on in August.
We continue to meet in the upstairs function room at The Bell Inn in
Hampton. The new layout we used last month worked well and everybody got
a good view of the screen. A number of members stayed on afterwards to
have a drink and a chat. The full address is The
Bell Inn, 8 Thames Street, Hampton, TW12 2EA. There is a car park
behind the pub and another just over the road by the Hampton Ferry.
