"Street Photography" - Steve Williams http://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2018/5/-street-photography---steve-williams What is street photography? Steve Williams of Kettering and District Photographic Society presented his interpretation of this genre to members of the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society on Friday 18th May. Using relatively small cameras and a lot of bravado Steve is happy to take pictures of people anywhere at any time, his favourite haunts being the streets and public buildings of London. He was happy to pass on advice about camera equipment, techniques, locations and the law regarding this type of photography. Chairman John Spowart thanked Steve for a very informative and interesting evening.

An Evening With Martin Robinson - Friday 20th April 2018 http://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2018/4/an-evening-with-martin-robinson---friday-13th-april-2018 Martin Robinson DPAGB of Nuneaton Photographic Society has travelled widely in pursuit of his favourite subjects, namely landscape and wildlife. On Friday 20th April 2018 he visited the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society to give an illustrated talk on some of his photographic adventures. He began with his visits to Iceland and the Lofoten Islands, and then to The Pantanal in Brazil in search of the wild jaguars. He concluded the evening with rare and stunning images taken at a “night hide” in South Africa, set up to capture close-up photographs of elephants, lions, zebras and the many other animals visiting the nature reserve’s waterhole. Chairman John Spowart thanked Martin for an entertaining evening of excellent photography.

Mike Sharples "A Few Happy Snaps" - Friday 6th April 2018 http://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2018/4/mike-sharples-from-the-outside---friday-6th-april-2018 Mike Sharples ARPS MPAGB AFIAP of Smethwick Photographic Society gave a print talk to members of the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society on Friday 6th April. He called the talk “A Few Happy Snaps”, which did not do justice to the photographs he presented to his audience. Far from being “snaps” his prints were of top quality, with carefully considered composition and post-processing to achieve the image he wanted. He covered a very wide range of subjects, from landscapes in Scotland, Ireland, France, Wales, USA and more, to portraits including goths, steam punks, zombies, street artists, re-enactors in living museums and participants in “Tough Mudders” events. He had a series of photographs taken on a visit to India, and even included a “pay and display” kingfisher. Throughout the presentation Mike explained some of the techniques he used at the taking stage or in the post-processing and printing, hopefully inspiring Society members to try something new in their photography. Chairman John Spowart thanked Mike for an entertaining and informative evening of excellent photography.
