Paula Davies – Creative landscapes and flower photography

“I enjoy being out in the landscape pressing the shutter but get particular satisfaction from seeking out abstract images in man-made and natural objects that look like landscapes. Finding a different photo to take every day means that I often resort to photographing flowers from my garden.”

Members’ table top practical evening

This is our ever-popular table top practical evening, organised by Michèle Beverley.

Bring your camera and tripod to try out lots of activities in the hall – see the photos on the welcome page of BCC – table top, flowers, studio, still life, dry ice, etc.

Return visit to VPS

This is an opportunity to take part in a return visit to Viewfinder Photographic Society for a print critique.

Cuppa & Capture – “Let’s do it all ourselves”

I thought this theme might do us good ….

  • Set the camera to ‘Manual’  (No automatic Aperture, shutter speed, focus, ISO or anything else you might try and get past me.)
  • No ‘P’ and no ‘A’. Let’s be totally responsible for the appearance ofour shots today.
  • Also NO post-capture editing or cropping
  • The only thing you are to do is resize your photos to 1400px x 1050 px for emailing and the blog.

We each think of a theme and write it on a small piece of paper.

Before we start shooting, we will swap the piece of paper with another capturer and that is each person’s new theme.

For further information, please contact Rob Rivron (cuppa+capture@bishopthorpe-camera-club.com)
