    January 16, 2020 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
    Richard Herrod Centre, Foxhill Rd, Carlton, Nottingham NG4 1RL, UK

    Tonight we have a lecture by Robert Pettigrew (MBE), entitled "An Infidel in Iran"

    Robert explains, "A few years ago, whilst president of the Access Commission of the World Representative body for mountaineering, I was privileged to lead an international delegation of men and women mountaineers to Iran to grant recognition to the Iran Mountaineering Federation and to secure general permission to climb in the extensive mountain ranges of Iran.

    Like every major organisation, social, sporting and recreational in Iran, mountaineering is subject to close governmental control and we were aware of the sometimes baleful presence of the Ayatollahs throughout our extensive travels from Tehran, through Isfahan to Shiraz, and the extensive, but majestic ruins of Persepolis, put to the sword and torch by Alexander the Great in 330 BC - an act of unprecedented savagery. Persepolis was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire, 550-330 BC.

    I hope to present a faithful account of the social milieu we encountered amongst all classes of society, and to give some pointers to photographers and others interested in travelling to Iran in the current climate".

    We look forward to seeing Robert on the night.

    February 13, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
    St Mary's Church (ruin), Colston Bassett, New Rd, Colston Bassett, Nottingham NG12 3FX, UK

    It has been requested that we have a low light photography night and we haven't visited the location of the ruins at St Mary's Church Colston Bassett for some time.

    A beautiful ruined church, here we have a quiet place to practice our low light photography, and assist some of our newer members though the practice of light painting, tripod work, different settings on the camera etc.

    The location is off the beaten track and suitable clothing and practical footwear is essential. Please bring your kit, tripod, cable release if you have one, and extra batteries as the cold, as I'm guessing it might well be on the night, can drain batteries faster. Parking is at a premium in this location and car sharing is far more practical if it can be arranged.

    Richard Herrod Centre, Foxhill Rd, Carlton, Nottingham NG4 1RL, UK

    Our very own John YOUNG will provide a demonstration of basic post processing techniques using Lightroom and Photoshop. Whilst getting it right "in camera", is possibly the best plan, post processing is a necessary evil in the world of digital photography and can be a daunting prospect for the new photographer. However, with some basic and quick techniques many image can be enhanced.

    It is accepted that there is always more then one way to do the techniques that will be demonstrated, however, John is going to take us through his work flow system and we will adhere to his profile of the night.

  • Outside Event - Bugs & Things at Papplewick Ponds

    May 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Papplewick Pumping Station, Rigg Ln, Ravenshead, Nottingham NG15 9AJ, UK

    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.
