21st APRIL 2021 - 'Composition – Rules and Myths' by Sue Clark LRPS CPAGB AWPF
Well yet another excellent speaker. We are being spoilt. A lively and lavishly illustrated discussion of how, why, and when the rules of composition developed and their validity in the creation of an image. You thought you only had the 'Rule of Thirds' to help with your compositions, now you can be inspired by 'Divine Proportions' , 'Hogarth's Curve' and let's not forget the beautiful 'Fibonacci Spiral'.
14th APRIL 2021 - 'Creative Photography' by Barbie Lindsay MPAGB FBPE EFIAP/s
An excellent digital lecture covering a wide variety of creative techniques from the taking stage through to various computer manipulations. I thought Barbie was excellent, not only her photography but her imagination and easy way of presenting.

A truly superb evening. I don't think I was the only one who was up late after the talk trying out some textures I had filed away. Lots of great feedback from club members about Jane's easy going style, making her talk easy to follow. Let's hope for a return visit.
Thank you to Market Harborough for hosting this years annual battle, lets hope we can meet in person next year. Thanks also to the Judge, Steven Galvin, especially as Corby won this year but obviously it's the taking part that matters!

What an amazing presentation, a great insight into a lesser travelled part of the world. And if you're feeling like an adventure just visit Julian's website and you could book up and travel with him next time he goes.
Julian Elliott has been a professional landscape and travel photographer for 10 years. Having started writing for a number of British UK photography magazines he started selling his work through the World renowned Getty Images. To date his work has sold in over 40 countries and he has travelled in over 30 countries capturing the world around him. The talk is called Mongolia - From Steppe to Eagle Hunters. Journey from Mongolia's capital to the Altai in the country's far west. See how Julian's journey in this vast country unfolded and hear how he captured the vast landscapes and the people that inhabit them. Watch how Julian switches between from being a landscape photographer to travel to sports when the talk finishes with a look at the Eagle Festival.
