Landscapes

On a lovely Sunday morning we all met up in the countryside at Kinver at a fairly reasonable time for Landscape photography. After a short walk up a hill to our destination everyone began getting their camera and tripods out and started composing for what was a lovely view. After an explanation of the basics of landscape photography and the advantage of using filters, a demonstration was given to each member of how a simple filter could drastically improve their exposure and ultimately greatly enhance the image without the use of a computer. Focusing and composition tips were demonstrated while we walked around Kinver Edge looking at new landscape shots which did not encompass the traditional views and expanding everyone’s definition of landscape and encouraging them to look around them at all of their surroundings.    Terry.

Macro Workshop with Terry Livesey

Sunday 21st September at 10am and the peace and quiet of Bewdley’s Jubilee Garden was disturbed ever so slightly by the arrival of Terry Livesey  and seven KCC members eager to brush up their macro photo skills.

This was the first of Terry’s hands on tutorials and the areas covered were :-

  • Features of the camera for macro photography.
  • Information about special macro modes and dedicated macro lenses.
  • Composition for stunning images
  • Lighting techniques using natural light and flash.

The day started off by talking about the principles of what Macro photography is and the things needed to accomplish optimum results. The reduced depth of field was also explained and demonstrated.  Composition and lighting was covered and then experimented with. At the end everyone retired to the café and reviewed one image from each person, explaining why the shot worked and if any other methods would of helped enhance the image.
