Robin Whalley – ‘Lessons for landscape Ppotographers’

Landscape Photography often sounds like it should be easy but producing interesting, high quality work can be very challenging. This is particularly true if you are relatively new to the subject. In this presentation Landscape Photographer Robin Whalley shares six deceptively simple lessons that can significantly improve your landscape photography.

Photo Walk: Bempton RSPB and Thornwick Bay

We hope you will enjoy this BCC Photo Walk and that the opportunity provides encouragement for
you to develop further photographic skills and to become more creative in your image making. The
birds on the cliffs are quite a sight and this is a day for your long lenses and binoculars.

Meet at the RSPB car park Cliff Ln, Bridlington YO15 1JF (Grid Ref N54.14655 W0.16973 or OS-TA
197738). There is a £5 entrance charge to the reserve (free for RSPB members).

Preparation: You are advised to wear suitable footwear and clothing, most of the walking will be on
paths & tracks. There is a café and toilets at the visitor centre and a picnic area outside.

Communications: Please refer to the WhatsApp Group ‘BCC Photo Walks’. Don’t forget to look out
for any last minute announcements!

It is intended for these walks to be informal with everyone going at their own pace and pausing to
take photographs when the fancy takes them. Hence, you are responsible for your own navigation
and safety. If you are not confident at navigation, then please travel with other people in a group
with at least one person comfortable in map reading and navigation skills, that way you know you
will be safe in this respect. Please carry a phone with you at all times and bear in mind there may
not be a signal everywhere you go.

The WALK
There is no organised route on this occasion so feel free to explore. From the centre there are easy
paths to the various viewing platforms situated within a few hundred metres.

There will be lots of opportunities to photograph Gannets and many other sea birds, there may even
be some Puffins. Bempton Cliffs are some of the highest cliffs in the UK offering marvellous Photo
opportunities for us to explore. Check out the RSPB Bempton Website for details of the Centre and
Birds.
https://www.rspb.org.uk/reserves-and-events/reserves-a-z/bempton-cliffs/

You may choose to spend the whole day at Bempton with the option to take the cliff top path
beyond the reserve at your leisure.

In the afternoon there will be an option to drive to Thornwick Bay approx 5 miles away and spend
some time taking in spectacular Coves and Rock formations followed by a cuppa and chat in the
Cafe. Parking is available at the café Grid Ref N54.13088 W0.11497, OS-TA 231722.

Here is this information in a PDF document.
Here is an OS Location Map of Bempton and Thornwick Bay.

Monochrome Interest Group: “Shadows”

A meeting of the Monochrome Interest Group (MIG). The theme is ‘Shadows’.

There will be a charge of £2 to cover the hire of the hall.

C&C – “These are a few of my favourite views”

The Rose Window by Martin Holyoak

The biggest challenge people faced on this one was ‘which of my favourite views should I choose?’ Some of the old favourites can be found in the gallery but there are also some unexpected views.

I felt that Martin’s shot of the Minster was an appropriate image with just the right tone to reflect the events in Paris this week.

 

Gavin Prest – ‘The Black and White World of Gavin Prest’ [Main Hall]

Prize winning master photographer from Hornsea invites us into his thought provoking, quirky, often darkly humorous and always exceptionally exposed black and white world.

Cuppa & Capture – “Steps and stairs”

Library stairs by Bryan Stanton

Another lovely day to meet up for lunch and a chat. We also managed to get out and about to find inspiration in ‘steps and stairs’. It turns out that there are a lot of these in York, and not just the obvious ones. You will find some less familiar examples here, as well as some interesting interpretations of the theme.

C&C ‘Above eye level’ gallery published

The photos from the 2019 edition of Cuppa & Capture “Above eye level” are now on the website here.

Making an audio-visual presentation and members AVs

Roger Walton will lead this session on making audio-visual presentations.

There will also be an opportunity to see AV presentations made by members.

Photo Walk: The Humber Bridge: DATE CHANGED

N.B. Date change to SUNDAY 17th March due to forecast of very bad weather on Saturday.

The next Photo Walk will be on Sunday 17th March at The Humber Bridge.

The intention is to meet up on Hessle Foreshore, car parking is free of charge. There are significant photo opportunities to be had under the bridge before we set off on our bridge crossing. When we have finished on the Hessle Foreshore we will cross the Humber Bridge on foot taking in the spectacle of this enormous structure. After crossing the bridge we will head for the Ropewalk Cafe for a chat and catch up with others, timing about 12.30 ish.

For those that do not feel able to walk the bridge, you could consider driving over the Humber Bridge and park up in the Free Car Park in front of the Ropewalk Cafe marked on one of the PDFs.

After our meetup in the Ropewalk Cafe there is the opportunity for you to explore the South Bank taking in sights of one of the last remaining small boatyards and of course a wonderful panorama of The Humber Bridge and adjacent Nature Reserve. We can walk this area as much as you want before returning back over the bridge to our cars on the Hessle Foreshore where we could have a final Coffee / Tea and chat in The Country Park Hotel.

The important documents that you’ll need are:

For more information email: photowalk[at]bishopthorpe-camera-club.com (replace [at] with @).

Please note that the Photo Walk at the Humber Bridge has moved to Sunday 17th March. This is due to a forecast of very bad weather on the Saturday. All other details remain the same.

Monochrome Interest Group: “Abstract”

A meeting of the Monochrome Interest Group (MIG). The theme is ‘Abstract’.

There will be a charge of £2 to cover the hire of the hall.

Cuppa & Capture – “Above eye level” (2019 edition)

There are felines above us by Malcolm Beetham

This was an idea submitted by Trevor – the last time we tried it only 3 people attended the meeting so we thought we should do it again. A lot more people come out this time and the weather responded accordingly – it was a lovely Spring day.

I just hope that there weren’t too many cricks in necks at the end of the session!
