The transition to Tier 3 and then the sudden national lockdown meant that it was decided to cancel the planned physically-distanced night shoot in Huddersfield. Luckily we had been sent a link a few days before to a presentation of the Yorkshire Photographic Union 2020 accepted Projected Digital Images. This provided an interesting evening using the Zoom video conferencing app to which we have all become familiar. Around 230 images were shown by entry category with titles, photographer’s names and the clubs which they belonged to. James, our ‘projectionist’, paced the evening so that we were able to see all the images.
This kind of evening can be a passive experience but in this case James’ comments and the observations of a number of other members added a range of viewpoints and drew attention to particular merits and sometimes demerits of the images. We were particularly impressed by many of the Nature entries. A number of Scapes and Sports Action shots also caught the eye. A particularly pleasing aspect was the number of accomplished images by our own members, two of which are included here.
