'That's Not a Landscape Photograph!' *
Huw Alban takes apart the common themes and assumptions associated with landscape photographs and photography, and portray them with a fresh perspective.
In doing so he’ll lean heavily on his own experience, the events that occasionally unfolded during his workshops and, of course,those interesting conversations you have after camera club competition evenings.
||Change to the Programme
The quality of camera phones has improved over the years and they are compact and convenient – yet surely they have their limitations?
Bob Holman of Marlborough Photography comes to explain his approach – and open our eyes as to the possibilities
“The best camera is the one that’s with you!” says Bob. “Mine is always with me – so I never miss an opportunity to shoot the world around me. ‘But what about the quality of my shots?’ I hear you ask. ‘I shoot in RAW’. Yes – you heard correctly.”
This talk comes highly recommended – come and be amazed by the possibilities.
