The competition is for Digital Projected Images, and will be held on the Chairman's Evening in September. All fully paid-up members of the DRPS are invited to enter up to five images on the theme of "Architecture". The images are to be sized and titled in the same way as images for the DPI heats. It is an open competition i.e. there is no Novice, Intermediate or Advanced category.

For its inaugural year the competition will be judged by the Chairman himself.

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.

"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.

Following on from Graham Walton and Peter Yeo in May the trend continued with a visit from Bob Underhill of Smethwick Photographic Society on Friday 7th June. A well-known judge of national and international exhibitions, his own work covers many genres but he has a particular love of moody landscapes and character studies of people in interesting locations. He makes full use of post-processing, soft-focus filters and other techniques to add emotion and appeal to his final prints. The quality and variety of images, presented in a friendly and relaxed style, made for another excellent Society meeting. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Graham for a very entertaining evening.

Their latest talk “Iceland” is based on several visits to different parts of this fascinating country and in different seasons. Going to many of the less “touristy” places in the north of the island in pursuit of their passion for wildlife they produced wonderful photographs of birds, wildfowl and flora. The landscape scenery was superb, and with the flexibility and stamina to get to the locations at any time of day or night to get the best light the images produced were stunning. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Liz and Barrie for a wonderful evening.

The first part of the evening largely featured Venice and Burano. Peter’s eye for the unusual and interesting resulted in images of shop windows, reflections, tourists, night scenes and patterns of colour, shape and texture. After the interval the talk featured the Scottish islands including Harris, Lewis and Barra. The pursuit of Scottish bad weather produced many dramatic landscape scenes. As expected from a Fotospeed lecturer Peter’s prints were of excellent quality, and his informative and light hearted presentation was greatly appreciated by those present. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Peter for a very instructive and entertaining evening.

"Burning In The Shadows" - Graham Walton DPAGB https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/5/-burning-in-the-shadows---graham-walton-dpagb Graham Walton, a member of the Arden Photo Group and Shirley Photographic Society, visited the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society on Friday 10th May to give his print talk “Burning In The Shadows”. Graham achieved the Distinction award from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (DPAGB) and started the evening by showing the fifteen successful prints that he submitted for assessment by the panel of judges. He went through each image in detail, explaining how and where the photographs were taken, and the extensive post-processing carried out using Photoshop and other software. Graham is not a “straight out of the camera” photographer!

He then showed a selection of other prints covering a wide variety of subjects and techniques. He is particularly interested in infra-red photography, dark and gloomy scenes requiring very high ISO settings, industrial locations and foreign travel. His interesting talk and excellent prints produced many questions from the audience. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Graham for a very instructive and entertaining evening.

"Photoshop Workflow" with Chris Forster https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/4/-photoshop-workflow-with-chris-forster There cannot be many photography enthusiasts who have not used Adobe’s Photoshop software in one form or another. Whether a beginner or advanced user it is always interesting to see how other photographers use this powerful software. Even the “expert” can learn about features in Photoshop that they were not aware of or discover alternative ways of carrying out a post-processing procedure. Chris Forster from Milton Keynes has had many acceptances in national and international photographic exhibitions and gained an impressive set of photographic distinctions. On Friday 26th April he visited the Desborough & Rothwell Photographic Society to give a talk “Photoshop Workflow – from Basic to Advanced”. He began with the two golden rules of digital photography:

  1. Do not throw away any data
  2. Do not do any processing that you cannot undo

Surprisingly, despite these rules, he revealed that after doing comparisons between RAW files and JPEGs he found no distinguishable differences in image quality when he used high-resolution JPEGs. He therefore now shoots mainly in JPEGs!

In a very well prepared and illustrated talk he went through the use of layers, masks, blending modes, dodging and burning, selection tools, conversion to monochrome and many other features, gradually building up to more and more complex images involving the use of many layers. Along the way he answered many questions from the Society members who were very appreciative of Chris’ willingness to share his processing techniques with them.

Programme Secretary Derek Buckett thanked Chris for a very interesting and educational evening.

Ashley Franklin "Under A Tuscan Sky" https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/3/ashley-franklin-under-a-tuscan-sky On Friday 15th March Ashley Franklin visited the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society. Derek Buckett, Programme Secretary, submitted this report on the evening:

"Many members of Desborough & Rothwell Photographic Society had been looking forward to the visit of Ashley Franklin, from Milton in Derbyshire to see “Life Under A Tuscan Sky”, and they were certainly not disappointed.

Ashley related the story of his visits to Tuscany, over a period of 17 years, initially with his family, and mother-in-law, for a family holiday, and then with a photographic friend, and, now, running photographic trips for 6 other photographers.

The talk centred around Vail D'Orcia, with trips to Florence, Sienna, various small towns, and villages. The area having the status of World Heritage Site being protected for future generations.

He based his photography following images seen which had taken by other top landscape photographers, and it was noticeable how, as he delved further into the landscape his photography improved, aided by “competition” from other photographers who went with him! Images from these photographers were also seen, which made for very interesting comparisons.

During his time in the region, they encountered the running of the Mille Miglia – a very famous “race” for classic sports, and images of the vehicles passing through the small towns were seen. One of the images, which I thought was an absolute gem, was of the driver of the vehicle having his hand out of the car, shaking the outstretched hand of a lovely Italian lady – brilliant.

A 45 minute time lapse sequence condensed into a 20 second AV proved to be very entertaining. Two AVs finished the evening – one of the towns, and the other of the landscapes. The latter based on the music of “The Gladiator”, with Russell Crowe superimposed over the image of the actual scene as in the film. A fine end to an excellent evening."

"Nudes Night" with Tim Pile https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/2/-nudes-night-with-tim-pile Tim Pile has a distinctive approach to photographing nudes. Only using natural light, his images are as much about the background, the landscape and the environment as they are about the model. He travels widely in search of outstanding and interesting locations, including places in England, Scotland, Ireland, Iceland, Norway and Corsica. Essential to the success of his images is the rapport with a top-class model. It helps if the model is also adventurous and hardy. One of his favourite models, Lulu Lockhart, has had to stand nude in a gale on Vik beach, as well as hug an iceberg at Jokulsarlon and perch precariously on volcanic outcrops. On Friday 22nd February Tim showed another collection of superb prints under the title “Nudes Night” to the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society and explained how each image had been researched and constructed. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Tim for an evening of excellent photography.

"Urban Photography" with Bill Allsopp https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2019/2/-urban-photography-with-bill-allsopp Bill Allsopp of the Print Project Group is a well-known photographer and has recently published a book “So You Want To Be A Landscape Photographer”. However, on 1st February he visited the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society to talk about urban photography, something he also enjoys.

When the timing, the weather or the lighting are not conducive to good landscape photographs a walk around a city or town can be an alternative source of interesting images, as he so ably demonstrated.

Street photography, particularly at night and after (or even during) rain can be particularly effective.  Architecture, industrial scenes, patterns and textures are all there to be photographed. And of course, the people in the urban environment provide endless image possibilities, whether they are posed or candid. He advocated the use of modern compact cameras which can produce excellent quality photographs and are much more discrete than large DSLR and zoom lens hung around the neck.

Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked Bill for a very entertaining evening of excellent photography and useful hints and tips to inspire members to get out there and photograph their urban environment.

The comparison between the two approaches to image making made for a very interesting talk, especially when they had both taken photographs of the same subject. There were many photographs of their travels abroad, including France, Ireland and Belgium. Closer to home there were images taken in London, Birmingham and Derbyshire among others. A fascination with things mechanical produced pictures of motorcycles, steam trains and traction engines. Chairman John Spowart thanked Carol and Peter for a very entertaining evening of excellent photography.

Photography - Art For The Untalented https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2018/10/photography---art-for-the-untalented Gore Vidal is reputed to have described photography as “art for the untalented”. Taking this as the theme for his talk on Friday 19th October Colin Lusby CPAGB from Grimsby demonstrated to members of the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society that this was patently untrue. Using a wide variety of his own prints he illustrated the use of many in-camera and post processing techniques to take a straightforward image and turn it into something more personal and creative. Sometimes, by his own admission, the results were not always successful or appreciated by judges, but it all added to his knowledge and skills as a photographer and as an artist. Chairman John Spowart thanked Colin for a fascinating and very entertaining evening.

"Malcolm's Meanders" - Malcolm Ranieri FRPS https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2018/6/-malcolms-meanders---malcolm-ranieri-frps Malcolm Ranieri FRPS is well known for his photographs of steam engines, having had many books published on the subject in addition to gaining exhibition acceptances and awards with his images. On Friday 22nd June he brought along a collection of prints to members of the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society to illustrate his talk “Malcolm’s Meanders”. The tremendous depth and breadth of his knowledge and experience was illustrated with prints made from large format colour slides to his current work from digital files, from preserved railways in Great Britain to railways in South Africa, Cuba, USA and what was then East Germany. Although his love of steam predominated he did show his versatility with many other subjects covered, including portraiture, cars, buses, trams, sport and studio work. The talk was delivered in a light hearted and humorous manner. Chairman John Spowart thanked Malcolm for a very entertaining and informative evening of excellent photography.

"Lightroom For Everyone" by Nat Coalson ARPS https://www.drpsphoto.co.uk/blog/2018/6/-lightroom-for-everyone-by-nat-coalson-arps Nathaniel Coalson ARPS is an American photographer, artist and designer living in England. In addition to running photographic tours and workshops he also writes instructional books on photography. He is an Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom, and on Friday 15th June 2018 he came to the Desborough and Rothwell Photographic Society to give a presentation “Lightroom for Everyone”. After explaining how the Lightroom file management system worked he moved on to demonstrate the power of the computer-based software (now called “Lightroom Classic”) to batch process, develop and export images. He concluded with a brief look at Lightroom CC, which stores images in Adobe Cloud so they can be accessed anywhere that has a broadband connection, and is largely aimed at the smartphone photographer as well as the laptop user. The presentation gave a good insight to the software for those members present who have never used it and prompted many questions which Nathaniel took time to carefully answer. Even those who have used Lightroom for some time picked up many useful hints and tips. Chairman John Spowart thanked Nathaniel for a well presented and interesting talk which would hopefully encourage more members to try Lightroom.
