We have an exciting month ahead of us. We will be hearing from club members
who inspires them. There is the Clarens Autumn Weekend Away this weekend. And
the set subject is a challenging technical subject - long exposure.
1. Meeting - "Who Inspires You"
Following on from the inspirational talk given by Matthew Willman last month,
we continue with an exploration into which photographers motivate, inspire
and provide enjoyment to members of the club.
Part of the journey we all take in our growth as photographers is to be
exposed to other people's work. Seeing why and what motivated others to take
the photos they took keeps us challenged and inspired. Simple appreciation of
beautiful work is also important for growth.
We will be hearing about Sally Mann, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Arno
Minkinnen and William Eggleston.
2. Clarens Weekend Away

Weather - it is expected to be clear and sunny, and COLD!! Zero degrees

jackets, socks etc.
Carl Smorenburg's course - we will advise closer to the time, or at Kiara
Lodge, what the arrangements are for his course. Right now it looks like
there will be a theory talk on Saturday after lunch, and a practical on
Sunday morning. In between you can shoot whenever and whatever you want!
3. Set Subject - Long Exposure
