Gainsborough Snappers

by | 1 November 2023 | Gainsborough, Hobbies

At the Gainsborough Snappers meeting on 6th October, member Gerry Kemp, who last month surprised all with his AI image, gave a talk about layering using Photoshop. There are many ways of achieving the same result, but Gerry had produced a simple workflow to demonstrate how to add misty effects to a couple walking through woodland.

The challenge for the month was ‘Three Shots of the Same Subject from Different Perspectives’. The idea was to encourage everyone to look at their subject and consider how it might be shot differently. There were no limits on the definition of ‘different’: members could shoot the same scene at different times of day, from different angles, with different lenses etc, and they took full advantage of the opportunity to do so.

Peter Sedgwick took a Newton’s Cradle and adjusted his camera settings to capture them static, with one moving and all moving. John Turner took a different approach with his early morning phone camera pictures of Cromer Pier, shooting with each of the three lenses offered by his phone to show the differing results.

The club was pleased to welcome some new visitors and to show the new computer and projector working together. Members each voluntarily contributed a small amount, which made this big purchase possible. Anyone interested in joining Snappers is more than welcome to go along to the village hall in Beckingham for one of their meetings.

The next meeting takes place on Friday 3rd November with a talk from John Whaler from Lincoln. John is a friend of the club and regularly judges the annual competition. He will be talking about ‘Infrared and Monochrome Photography’. Visitors are welcome at any time.
