Cuppa & Capture – ‘Red’

After the excitement of two outings in consecutive weeks we are back to the the usual meeting place and with the theme of “red”.

Jeff Craine – ‘Through the lens of Impressionism’

Photography and Impressionist Painting – A lecture about the origins of landscape photography

In France, during the middle of the 19th century, painters and photographers were frequently working in the same locations, as landscape emerged as the main vehicle for radical artistic practice. How did the relationship between painters and photographers evolve and what influences can be discerned in their respective images? How did they change the ways in which nature could be represented to a modern audience?

Cuppa & Capture – Extra outing – ‘The Rut at Studley Royal’

This special outing has been added in to the usual C&C timetable!

The plan is to get to Studley Royal at a time of your own choosing and all meet in the Cafe at 12 Noon for the cuppa.

The National Trust information about the rut is here: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/fountains-abbey-and-studley-royal-water-garden/features/october-at-fountains-abbey-and-studley-royal

The section about safety around the deer says:

If you visit the deer park it’s highly likely that you will see or hear the rut going on. Don’t try to get close though as the battling stags/bucks are so focused on the fight that they’re not aware of anything else around them. When the fight comes to an end the loser will make a break for it in any direction, with the winner close on their tail. If you’re here to photograph the deer, please keep your distance and use a long lens to capture your shots. Please do not wear camouflage and stick to the main paths.

The deer park is currently open from 06:00-18:00, and there is no charge for parking for NT members displaying their current NT stickers.

The abbey and water gardens are open 10:00-18:00, and the all important tea-room at the deer park end is open 10:00-17:00.

(With thanks to Helen Jones for this information.)

This event, organised by Rob Rivron and Alex Davidson, is a trip to Bradford Media Museum, including a ‘behind the scenes’ tour!

Sanjay Gupta – ‘Rajasthan: the Land of Kings’

The Pushkar fair in Rajasthan (literally translated as the Land of Kings) is one of India’s largest camel, horse and cattle fairs. Apart from the trading of livestock, it is an important pilgrimage season for Hindus to the Pushkar lake. Pushkar fair has also become a significant tourist attraction for domestic and international travellers, given the cooler season and the abundance of colourful cultural themes. It is estimated that almost a quarter of a million people visit the fair every year.

In this lecture Sanjay will present some of his images and recount some of his experiences from his visit to Rajasthan and the Pushkar fair.
