What a night! Bob Given truly entertained club members last night as he
presented his talk on Sports Photography. He showed us some dramatic
images from a wide variety of sports from rugby to table tennis all of
which reflected his passion for this genre of photography.
What made Bob’s talk extra special were his anecdotes relating to either
details about, the sports person featured or the situation on the ground
on the day or both.
Additionally, he gave tips on post processing: how to deal with noise
associated with high isos, useful features of Nik software, the camera
settings, composition, personal positioning, timing and angle of view and
We learnt “it is not as easy as it looks”, “If you can see it in your
viewfinder you’ve missed it”, the importance of capturing facial
expressions and the importance of being nice to the people you meet.
