Audio-Visual Evening

November 24, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Four members of the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society provided the entertainment at its meeting on Friday 24th November. An evening of audio-visual presentations (photographs with music) began with two from Dorothy Rudkin. The first featured beach huts at Lowestoft, and this was followed by the story of a horsechestnut tree at Summerleyton Hall. Steve Rappitt illustrated the background to William Morris’ popular designs with photographs of Kelmscott Manor, and then looked back at his own history by showing scans of some slides that he entered in club competitions between 1979 and 2006. After the break Trevor Rudkin showed sequences covering The Lake District, the National Memorial Arboretum, modern dancers at Studio 4 in Nottingham, Edinburgh and Al Fresco Arts in Market Harborough. The evening concluded with Philip Gott’s two presentations on Cornwall, his new county of residence.  Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked all the participants for a very interesting and entertaining evening.

The 2017 season ends with a Christmas Social on Friday 8th December.

The Society resumes meetings next year on Friday 5th January 2018

"My History Through Club Photography" by Marc Edwards

November 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

On Friday 10th November Marc Edwards, a member of the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society, gave a print talk entitled “My History Through Club Photography” to fellow members. Beginning with his early work as a novice in camera clubs in Essex (before the arrival of the digital era) his prints started as small 10 inch by 8 inch mounted photographs. With experience his work became more successful, he progressed to the advanced sections and the size of the prints gradually increased in size. His subject matter has always been very varied, including travel, wildlife, flowers, architecture, portraiture, landscape, sport, aeroplanes and classic cars. Eventually he converted to digital photography and continues to produce successful work, one of his prints being accepted in the Midland Counties Photographic Federations 2017 Travelling Photofolio. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Marc for a very interesting and entertaining evening.

On Friday 24th November there will be an audio-visual evening with several Society members providing the entertainment at 8.00pm at Marlow House, Gold Street, Desborough NN14 2NQ

On Friday 1st December the annual Print Of The Year Competition takes place, starting at 7.30pm at Marlow House

The 2017 season ends with a Christmas Social on Friday 8th December.

The Society resumes meetings next year on Friday 5th January 2018
