2.  Tuesday Meeting

We have some exciting speakers for Tuesday's meeting.

  • Harry Lock will be talking about High and Low Key photography, this months' set subject. He will explain how to shoot for the two effects. He will also explain the benefits of using these two techniques.



  • Andrew Roos will be speaking about Sebastiao Salgado. Andrew: "I will be presenting an introduction to the contemporary Brazillian environmentalist and social documentary photographer Sebastiao Salgado and his recent book, Genesis. Genesis is the culmination of 32 trips made over a period of eight years  to the remotest places on earth to seek out the land and seascapes, the animals and ancient communities that remain untouched by modern man. The resulting images are stunning, and I will be presenting some of my favourites accompanied by excerpts from Salgado's notes. "
