Gianpiero Ferrari - "Wild Queensland and the Red Hot Centre" https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/2/gianpiero-ferrari---wild-queensland-and-the-red-hot-centre Gianpiero Ferrari FRPS has been interested in natural history for many years, and he loves taking photographs of anything from the smallest flowers to the largest mammals. He has won many national and international awards for his photography and is frequently asked to be a judge at exhibitions and salons. He has had his work published in magazines, calendars and books. He is a member of the Natural History Fellowship Assessment Panel of the Royal Photographic Society, and has travelled widely in Europe, Sri Lanka, the United States, Africa, India, the Falkland Isles and the West Indies to record the natural world. Probably his favourite place however is Australia, and on Friday 28th February he visited the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society to give his talk ”Wild Queensland and the Red Hot Centre”. He has visited Australia three times, and his talk was based on his third trip which covered the famous Uluru (Ayres Rock) Alice Springs area and the north eastern part of the continent. He had clear objectives as to what he hoped to photograph, including the Thorny Devil lizard and the flightless Cassowary bird, but he also took many superb pictures of Australian birds, insects, moths, butterflies, frogs, flowers, emus, kangaroos (including the tree kangaroo) and much more. He managed to include underwater snorkelling on the Barrier Reef and a spot of whale watching. A fascinating evening which appealed to natural history enthusiasts and keen photographers alike. Chairman John Spowart thanked Gianpiero for a wonderful evening of photography.

Dr. Anne Sutcliffe FRPS "Travelling Light" https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/2/dr-anne-sutcliffe-frps-travelling-light Dr. Anne Sutcliffe FRPS gave her print talk “Travelling Light” at the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society on Friday 21st. February. After many years of carrying heavy and bulky cameras around Anne made the switch to the Panasonic mirrorless GX8 camera system, hence the title for this talk. To say that Anne has travelled widely is an understatement. Cuba, Easter Island, Alaska, Chile, Peru, Brazil, Yellowstone Park are just some of the locations that provided her with great images, often involving travel hardships and risks that many in the audience would happily avoid. Given Anne’s long-standing reputation as a photographer, judge, Fotospeed lecturer and Royal Photographic Society advisor and assessor it was no surprise that the evening was greatly enjoyed and appreciated by all who were privileged to attend. Chairman John Spowart thanked Anne for a wonderful evening of photography.

"A Tour Of Prague" - Wes Gibbon https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/2/-a-tour-of-prague---wes-gibbon A step back in time took place at the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society on Friday 7th. February. A feeling of nostalgia came across those old enough to remember as they were greeted with the sight of a Kodak Carousel projector and trays of 35mm slides. Wes Gibbon of Deepings Camera Club gave a talk about the city of Prague, illustrated with his slides which ranged from the 1990s to the early 2000s. Wes is a keen musician and music enthusiast, and it was his love of Czech composers such as Dvorak and Smetana that prompted his many visits to the city. His wide knowledge of the history and architecture of this fabulous city was appreciated by the audience. New chairman John Spowart thanked Wes for bringing back happy memories to those members who have visited the city of Prague.

Mobile Phone Photography Competition 2020 https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2020/2/mobile-phone-photography-competition-2020 Recognising the fact that so many people now use their smartphone to take photographs - indeed, for many people their phone is their only camera - the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society introduced a mobile phone photograph competition in 2019. After several rounds of this competition, and then a follow-up practical evening to discuss the capabilities of the modern smartphone as a camera, the competition rules have been updated for 2020. The Society hopes that this innovation goes from strength to strength as it adapts to the latest developments in photography.

"Moore and Moore Digital Prints" - Sue and Bob Moore https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/11/-moore-and-moore-digital-prints---sue-and-bob-moore Photographers of a certain age may remember, with some nostalgia, the price lists that were issued by Jessops of Hinckley Road, Leicester in the 1980s. One huge sheet of paper, very small text, seemingly distributed randomly across the paper, and requiring a magnifying glass to read some of it. A visit to the Hinckley Road store would often involve an encounter with its resident expert and trainer, Bob Moore. If you wanted technical advice on equipment or to attend a workshop on darkroom printing or some other aspect of photography Bob was there to offer it. Moving forward to the present day, Bob is still a very active and well known photographer, and he continues to pass on his knowledge and expertise to other photographers as a lecturer and judge. On Friday 29th November Bob and his wife Sue, a very successful photographer herself, gave a print talk “Moore and Moore Digital Prints” to members of the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society. They have travelled very widely around the world in search of photographic subjects, and they presented a collection of excellent and fascinating prints of the many people and places they have found. There was also plenty of advice on picture taking and picture making along the way, delivered in Bob’s own inimitable style. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Bob and Sue for a very entertaining and informative evening.

November saw a welcome return by Malcolm Cook to the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society. His new “Endless Skies” talk featured his ever-popular mix of excellent photographs, technical hints and tips on the use of the camera and post-processing in Photoshop, and a lot of good humour. Landscapes, seascapes and water sports featured heavily in the presentation, as anyone who is familiar with Malcolm’s work would expect. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Malcolm for a very entertaining and instructive evening.

"Jogging The Memory" - a print talk by Derek Buckett https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/11/-jogging-the-memory---a-print-talk-by-derek-buckett Thanks to DRPS member Steve Rappitt for this report on Derek Buckett's talk to the Society on Friday 8th November 2019:


When it had appeared in the club programme that our own Derek Buckett was going to present a lecture we knew we were in for an evening of anecdotes, humour , and as the title infers memories, but most of all good photography. In his introduction Derek explained that recently he had decided to part company with many of his prints but he retained those which had special personal memories.

Derek began life in south London where also his love of photography began using a Kodak Brownie. Starting work in 1962 he was encouraged by a colleague to take a picture of a steam train crossing a viaduct and the love of steam has never diminished. However the Brownie was not good enough to capture trains in motion and he progressed to more sophisticated cameras. A’120’ model and a Minolta A5 to name a few. Steam was not his first photographic success but a competition win of a photo of a neighbour printed in the local newspaper. His experience grew with promotion to a head photographer in the company he was employed by and opportunities arose to record more industrial subjects. Steam however dominated his interests with trips around the remaining steam locomotive sheds in London and also adventures to northern England. With the demise of steam motor sport was also on the agenda with night time rally photography.


Subject matter became even more varied when Derek moved to Rothwell and joining the DRPS. He also showed examples of experiments with different film processes, differing printing papers, use of OHP transparency film, copy paper and even different coloured print mounts but he has always had a love of sepia toned images. Eventually he succumbed to digital photography but the darkroom was not abandoned immediately.


Derek described each print, the reason he had retained it, many with an amusing background story, many now with a historical social value. A large proportion had been successful in photographic competitions, both within the club and nationally such as his north bound steam train leaving Bewdley on a cold misty morning winning a gold medal.
The evening lived up to expectations with an excellent range of both colour and black and white photography. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Derek for a very entertaining talk.

An evening of slides with Peter Butlin https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/10/an-evening-of-slides-with-peter-butlin When digital imaging became widely available and affordable many people predicted the death of analogue photography. Darkrooms were disbanded, film cameras were sold off or confined to the loft. Film, paper and chemical manufacturers went out of business or greatly reduced the range of available products. However, film photography did not die, and a recent upsurge of interest in alternative and early imaging processes has created a market for many items that were once thought to be no longer available. One person who never lost faith in film photography is Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society member Peter Butlin. Peter has been using slide film and his beloved Fuji camera for many years, maintaining his own path against the digital tide. On Friday 25th October he demonstrated to members of the Society why he loves his chosen medium. With a strong interest in colour, architecture and pattern Peter presented a wide range of excellent and interesting images taken in Britain and abroad. He gave some good advice about how to get the image right at the taking stage because there is no Photoshop post-processing with slide film. Looking out for distracting backgrounds, waiting for the correct light, using filters to enhance the subject, finding original viewpoints of familiar scenes – good advice, even for the most ardent digital convert. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Peter for a very entertaining and interesting evening.

"Where I Photograph Wildlife In The UK" - Malcolm Hupman https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/10/-where-i-photograph-wildlife-in-the-uk---malcolm-hupman One of the best things about the photographic community is the willingness by many of its members to share their expertise, knowledge and experience with fellow photographers. Malcolm Hupman is one such person. He is a top-class photographer of wild life, and on Friday 11th October he visited the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society to not only show some amazing wildlife images but also to share the locations and the technical details of how they were shot. Vital information, such as "Is there a cafe?", "Are there toilet facilities?" and "How much does it cost to park?" were also included in the many hints and tips during the talk. Starting from the back garden to locations within a 30 minute drive from his home, then to sites that could be visited within a day, and eventually to longer stay photographic holidays in Northumberland and Scotland, Malcolm showed that superb images are achievable so long as you have the skill and the patience required. Birds, butterflies, flowers, insects, red squirrels, grey seals, hares, foxes, deer, lizards - a tremendous variety of subject, delivered in a very professional and entertaining manner. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Malcolm for a great evening.
