Five of our newer members introduced themselves and showed their work at another of our regular evenings devoted to sharing our work and our ambitions. We were treated to a wide range of accomplished photography covering cityscapes and landscapes -on various continents. Some of our presenters were relatively new to “serious” photography but clearly skilled in terms of composition and capturing atmosphere, while others were pursuing a particular genre, style or output–such as architecture, graphic lines/textures and making stories/books. As always, we enjoyed learning about our presenters individual photographic journeys and appreciated the time and effort they put into making their presentations.
After the break, we saw the images selected for our entry to Hands Across the Sea 2018 by Hilary Barton and Susi Luard who had taken on choosing our 20 images -5 images for each of 4 categories- from the pool of around 200, submitted by 19 of our members. The pool had been projected during the interval so we were able to appreciate just how challenging this had been.
