Fri       19/08/2022      Annual Exhibition (the Quartet theme – The 4 Seasons)

Sat      20/08/2022      Ditto

Our annual exhibition will run alongside that of the Embroiderers Guild in the Methodist Church.  Together, they will promote the undoubted creative talent within the town. For our part, this requires a big effort, to make the pictures, to put up and take down the displays and also to be on hand to talk to members of the public during the exhibition.  (Unfortunately, our friends at the Lutterworth Arts & Crafts Exhibition will not be joining us this year.)

 

Monday, 5th Sep at 8.00 pm (Hosted on Zoom by Nuneaton PS)

“A Feeling of Impressionism” with Steven LeProvost, from Guernsey

Steven concentrates on three genres, still life, nautical and character studies.

His goal is to create pictures that portray mood, atmosphere and emotion.

Tonight he will show work from three Fellowship panels, the methods he uses, his approach to being creative, the pictures that worked and those that didn’t work.

The entries must illustrate 3 topics (of your choice), two prints to each topic.  In addition, there are three single print competitions, one each for Colour, Mono and a recently taken Mono Landscape.

05/10/2022  Meeting via ZOOM    “Downtrodden Man”, with Russell Linsay FBPE,MPAGB,EFIAP

Rusty considers himself to be a photographic artist rather than a photographic reporter and will photograph anything and everything if he thinks it could make a good image. He likes an added element of humour in his pictures but alongside everything else that he produces, quality is of paramount importance.  His talk tonight covers a variety of subjects mostly national/international Exhibition images.

Tonight’s the night to show us how imaginative you can be.  It doesn’t matter how you’ve created them, you can enter up to three PDIs which distort reality, which perhaps convey an abstract idea, which is experimental, or even surreal.

The annual “People” competition is also scheduled for tonight, entry to which is also limited to three PDIs per member, (but not studio shots).

 

09/11/2022 Meeting via ZOOM     “Architecture: Exposure to Edit”, with Richard O'Brien

Richard is an IT instructor in his 'day job', and an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop.  In this lecture he talks about the kind of images he takes and what he looks for when shooting both internal and external architecture.  Starting with gear and why he uses it, he then covers some very simple tricks he uses to 'get the shot'.  In the second half, he does a live demonstration (all questions welcome) editing some of the images using a combination of Lightroom Classic and Photoshop CC.
