Bill has also appeared in The Bill, Cold Blood and Jonathan Creek as well as numerous other TV shows and films.

    During the first half of the evening Bill will tell us a bit about his background, and his acting career, before going on to discuss the photographs he takes (all 3 are very closely related) and why
    he takes them.

    The second half will see Bill talk about "Creative Photography" such as in-camera movement and in-camera multiple exposures, which he’s been doing for a number of years now...oh, and he’ll show a lot of pictures!

    Bill is a self-taught photographer and has won numerous awards nationally and internationally. He shoots for an agency and his work has been published widely. His primary photographic interest is in landscapes, whether natural, urban or industrial.

    Zoom virtual meeting

    Talk by Ernest Porter on Action Photography - Photographing Raptors in flight in the Kalahari live via the wonders of satalite from Johannesburg, South Africa.
    I first visited the Kalahari in January 2017 and was completely hooked to the magic this unique destination offers. I have since spent more than 84 days exploring the wanders of the Kalahari and I definitely considers the Kalahari to be my favorite photographic destination in Southern Africa, without any doubt. In this Webinar Ernest will discuss in detail how he goes about action photography of Raptors in the Kalahari. Ernest will be discussing the following, but not limited to:
    • Exposure Settings and Camera Modes best suited for the conditions.
    • Setting up advanced Auto Focus Settings on your DSLR Camera to match the subject’s movements.
    • Customizing your camera to suit your needs and discuss handy tools available in your camera to assist you to get the photo.
    • Lenses, their functions and how to use them effectively with Action Photography.
    • The Importance of Editing in the modern world.
    This webinar is well suited for the experienced hobbyist to advanced professional photographers. I am a Canon Shooter but have experience with Nikon and Sony Systems and my talk is created for Canon, Nikon and Sony users.

  • 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.
