THURSDAY 28TH MAY FINDING THE BEAUTY IN NATURE     by Chris Upton

Chris has visited us on several occasions and his enthusiasm for photography is infectious. This virtual presentation will be slightly different but I am confident it will be as captivating. A fantastic candidate to demonstrate how to best capture the beauty of the landscape and the world around us. Chris shoots across a variety of styles, capturing wide sweeping vistas to the more intimate details of nature and cities. In this talk, Chris gives his advice for getting the most out of a shoot, from the way he approaches seeking out the best light to constructing composition. The event is free to guests but spaces are very limited. You need to request an access code by emailing beestoncameraclub@gmail.com

A PROJECT BASED APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHY – producing images with the Wow factor. BY David Keep

 David has been to the club on a number of occasions and here are a few notes from him on this particular presentation. We’re all looking to create powerful images that stand out from the crowd & I’ll describe my approach in trying to achieve this aim by taking a logical, project based approach. From initial concept, contact building, planning and shooting, right through to the processing techniques I use on some of my award winning images, nothing will be held back.
