Colin Trow-Poole - "People & Places"

"Often the subjects I photograph already have a strong story telling/documentary element, but by selectively composing, sensitively using lighting and carefully controlling tonal gradations, visual dialogue can be enhanced resulting in a more evocative and thought provoking final mage."

Chris Upton - "Passion for Pictures" (TBC)

We have previously had the pleasure of hearing Chris present to our Club - and he went down very well indeed!

This presentation really does have something for everyone, with a broad selection of images from around the world and close to home. The lecture contains many examples of how I work to develop the image in the field or in post processing to achieve the desired result.
