Members Night with gphotography

Big thank you to Graham Harries of gphotography for his entertaining and informative talk.

The talk focused on photography styles outside of the usual camera club approach and covered a range of interests from personal projects to professional works.

He showed that an obsession with photographic rules can be a limiting factor when exploring creativity and enjoyment, and that images (particularly those that sell) depend more often on an images ability to tell a story, rather than on whether boxes have been ticked for particular  techniques or approaches to composition.

Graham highlighted an opportunity in stock photography that many of us turn away  from because of the small financial gains associated with it (particularly with micro-stock); but with so many images sitting on our hard-drives doing nothing, what seems worth thinking about is the potential to earn something, rather than nothing at all, as well as having a sense of satisfaction in getting your images published in a popular publication.

Graham finished off with a medley of video clips which summarised his growing passion for videography, an increasingly popular aspect leading digital camera development, and drone photography. We look forward to seeing more from him in future.

Thank you Arthur for sending in the photos.
