The latest news from our recent club evenings and events or any other items of interest.

On 20th May club member Alan Stopher gave a presentation on Photographic Composition using the Zoom app and sharing his screen to show in Powerpoint.

Drawing heavily from Tony Worobiec’s ‘Complete Guide to Photographic Composition’, Alan illustrated the various techniques using his own photographs. Club members were sent a link to the resulting Youtube recording and the presentation itself has now been uploaded to the members area of this website. Pictured is one of the Powerpoint slides.

The Coronavirus pandemic is causing us all to change the way we do things. HPIC is no exception and following a successful trial of Zoom, the video conferencing app, we held a virtual meeting on 25th March. The subject was Andrew Rothery’s feedback on three of our print categories:

  • Intermediate

  • Sport Action & Photojournalism

  • Set Subject (Mono).

Andrew had kindly provided typed notes on each print and Alan Stopher narrated these whilst showing digital versions of the prints. The consensus amongst the 36 members on line during the meeting was that it had worked very well. The whole meeting was recorded by James Gibson our competition secretary and it has since been sent out to members by YouTube. Pictured here is a screen shot taken from the video at the end of the session whilst our President, Sue Gibson (top left) gives her closing remarks.
