Cuppa & Capture – “York Characters and Eccentrics”

Bow wow! by Teresa Beetham

No doubt we Yorkists rarely stop and pay much attention to the street artists and musicians so it was surprising to notice just how many there were today.  There were also quite a few regular characters whom we frequently see – we judge not which are “characters” and which “eccentrics”. We’ll leave that for you to decide!

Cuppa & Capture – “Café Culture”

I had to fit them all in!
by Roger Walton

A smaller but no less enthusiastic group met on a very hot day, which caused some of them to retire early…..for a cuppa or two!

Club Outing – “Bolton Abbey”

Tell it as it was – By Roger Walton

Coach waiting (Alex counted us on), 11.15 at the platform (Alex counted us…), Homeward (Alex counted…again)!

Weather challenging (think Salford Quays in November) but cameras were out at every opportunity, the cafes were dry and warm, a good time was had by all, and we’re already anticipating the next ‘Alex’ outing.

Cuppa & Capture – ” York at 400+ Stopped right Down”

Hiding
by Allan Nadian

Most of us don’t use our long, heavy zoom lenses very often so today’s theme meant we all had a chance to familiarise ourselves with them. Add to this the theme’s requirement to use the smallest possible aperture, which meant we were all adjusting ISOs & shutter speeds. Some of us even used our tripods!

Members obviously felt more comfy than usual in taking photos of strangers, which is reflected in the gallery below.

Cuppa & Capture – “Standing out in a crowd”

Too cold last time, too hot this time, no crowds as a result and capturers rapidly succumbing to the heat as tea shops embraced them earlier than normal….. What fickle creatures we are! We still fulfilled our task first though!

Cuppa & Capture – “Knobs and Knockers”

A Miscellany of Knockers by Sue Hoggett

If Rob thought we were going to comply 100% with his instruction that today’s title meant door furniture, he was to be disappointed (again) by our free thinking! Whilst of course most of us did ferret out rather interesting door furniture, a few went off piste as usual. Somehow, I don’t think that would have disappointed Rob!

Annual lecture: Mark Littlejohn ‐ Out of the Woods.

Trees and Woodlands have been a favourite subject of Mark’s for some years now. His talk will be split into approaches towards single trees and their dynamic within the landscape, arrangements of smaller groups and their relationships with each other and finally woods themselves with their often primordial atmosphere.

For examples of Mark’s work see his website: markljphotography.co.uk/.

Entry costs for this lecture are:
Members: £3, Non-members in advance: £5, Non-members on the door: £6

Cuppa & Capture – “High Angle”

Tower Steps by Lisa Williamson

Another very chilly  and overcast day did not deter us from our task this week, which was to shoot our photos from a height, pointing downwards. Not such an easy thing to do in flat York, but the city walls were very helpful for us, whether we were short of stature or not. Staircases of various kinds figured highly in our reports along with the usual great diversity of interpretations- plus one sidelong look at the title!

Alan Brown ‐ More than meets the eye?

An interactive session, using projected images and prints chosen primarily for their potential to help examine a host of questions.

Cuppa & Capture – “York at 50 Wide Open”

Post box by Alan Futers

This week’s challenge was to forget that we might have a zoom lens, if we had one, and to set the camera as if it was a 50mm prime lens- or equivalent, about 30mm, for those of us with an APSc camera.

We also had to open the lens to the widest possible aperture the camera would allow on this setting.

Some of us walked the city walls to take our photos, whilst Constantine proved a very useful fellow again, for others. Some chose to take close-ups whilst others went for the bigger picture- a good and varied set of photos again.
