  • Lecture - Through the Minds Eye

    September 3, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Richard Herrod Centre, Foxhill Rd, Carlton, Nottingham NG4 1RL, UK

    Tonight's speaker is Heather Burns - I’m a two times Master Craftsman with the Guild of Photographers and have won a number of image of the year awards for my creative art.

     I’m probably mostly well known for my Gothic images created from layers and textures to give them an illustrated look and feel. Many feature signature themes including cogs and clocks, eyes and birds.  I consider myself to be a storyteller creating images that have no requirement for words.

    The first session of the evening will outline how I evolved from gig photography into creative art and will include images of bands / promo material / Guild Panels/ portraiture and some art pieces. 

    In the second session I will talk more in depth about where I draw my inspiration from, how the images are put together and edited including a wide selection of before and afters to give your members some inspiration on how easily images can be transformed.

    This is an annual photographic weekend open to all NOPS members, where all things photographic are encouraged. It gives great opportunity to get up early to do sunrises, stay up late to do sunsets and practice all the techniques you've looked at during the year. We are provided with superb information prior to the weekend via the KitKat book and maps to plan well ahead for the trip. This is the result of the weekend, the excellent images and the behind the scenes which are always good for a laugh.

  • Outside Event - Papplewick Ponds

    April 22, 2021 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
    Papplewick Pumping Station, Rigg Ln, Ravenshead, Nottingham NG15 9AJ, UK

    Practical night at Papplewick Ponds, meet 7:30.

    Transferred from last years programme.
    It's hoped that this will be a good weather evening and we will meet at either the car park near oppose Papplewick Pumping Station, (link - https://www.google.com/maps/@53.0620721,-1.122905,16z)
    or there are lay-bys at the top of the ponds between the A614 roundabout and the Papplewick turn on on Longdale Lane. 

    The location is fairly flat, has a good path structure but you'll still need suitable footwear and clothing for the event, so keep an eye on the weather. 

    This is normally a great location for macro, bugs, flowers, wildlife etc. gets a great sunset (if there is one on the night) and as the evening cools the wildlife can become more sedate. 

    If you're new to macro, or feel it's not you're thing, I urge you all to come along an have a go. It's never totally 100% guaranteed or easy, but it's certainly great fun. 

    Costs - Members £0.00 - Non Members £3.00
