Next week our guest speaker is Ken Lindsay of Eastwood Photographic Society who will give us a presentation on “Travels to Myanmar (Burma and Cambodia)”. Ken is one of the foremost photographers in Scotland and Malcolm Allan asked me to share with you his thoughts on the forthcoming event.
“We have enjoyed our recent photographic travels in the company of Ian Doig who took us to the Galapagos Islands and along with Claire Carter where we visited Iceland, Norway, Poland, and Patagonia as well as several parts of the UK.
Next Monday, 12th, we are very fortunate to have the pleasure of the company of Ken Lindsay. Those who have followed the fortunes of Eastwood Photographic Society will know that it has become established as one of the top clubs in Scotland. Ken is one of several highly accomplished photographers within that club and the winner of many awards nationally and internationally. His talk on his visit to Myanmar and Cambodia will include some stunning images from countries which will be unlikely to figure on the list of holiday destinations for most of us.
So came along on Monday and enjoy a comfortable seat in first class with the promise of no jet lag. Sorry, no Bucks Fizz at the interval.”
With such a recommendation you just cannot afford to miss this event.
While on the subject of next Monday I have been asked by Paul to remind you that it is also the hand in the 3rd Monthly competition. Now you have two good reasons to attend.
Those members who have seen the Art Wolf -Travels to the Edge series of videos, may be interested to know that he has a new book on the series coming out, & that there is a video on Youtube where he gives a talk on the series & book… available here.
Members are reminded that we are still looking for images to put into a portfolio box that can be viewed by members. If you have any prints you would like to contribute, please bring them along to the club on Monday night.
Prints are to be unmounted up to A4 in size, colour or monochrome. Basic details are to write on the back of images.
We are pleased that our friends at Beeslack Penicuik Camera Club have sent out an invite …
Beeslack Penicuik Camera Club warmly invites you to an evening with renowned landscape photographer Colin Prior, on the 3rd of November 2016 at Penicuik North Kirk from 7.30pm.
Tickets for this event will go on general release in the next couple of weeks, however, we are opening our invite to fellow camera clubs first to give you a degree of priority. Audience numbers will be limited to 200, and although tickets will be available at the door on the night, our ticket sales are based on a first come first served basis.
This Sunday 21st Aug, there will be around 30 or more Classic Cars and dancers dressed up in 30s and 40s , and 50s uniforms, All Starts at 12 noon, but to get the best photos of the cars better to get to the Marina for the back of 10am. Marina is at the back of the police station.
I hope to get the dancers to pose with the old cars around 3pm for photos, looking to get the Buddy Holly and Elvis image .
Could you send to camera club members, as i think a good few photos could come out of it .
