Canterbury Photographic Society
Several members agreed to take part in a ‘Show and Tell’ evening where folk are invited to present a photography project, discuss their images, demonstrate an editing process or anything else photography related.
Stewart McKeown opened the digital section with some of his Kent Landscape and Seascape photographs. He showed images of his first visits to various locations and compared the results with his future visits to the exact same locations planned specifically to take advantage of different lighting and weather conditions, tide times and times of day.
Wendy Kennett demonstrated the process and materials used in her experiments with Cyanotype printing. She showed step by step images utilising watercolour paper developed in sunlight to create a Blueprint on the photosensitive surface.
Bill Grinney shared an Audio Visual presentation of the Wildlife in his garden telling the story of a family of Woodpeckers and his regular squirrel visitor’s antics.
After the break Barry Amos, George Aldridge and Steve Silk were all willing to share some of their printed images, the thought process behind the taking of the images and the editing techniques required to achieve the final result.
Derek Marsh gave a brief history of photography from 1700’s right up to the present day digital images.
John Kemp spoke about the capabilities of his new camera supported with images he had recently taken and some video footage.
