Guest Speaker – 28 Jan


Long Exposure Landscapes

From Stuart’s website:

I live in Bramcote, Nottingham and to help to improve my photography I joined Beeston Camera Club in 2009. Since joining a Camera Club my photography has progressed rapidly with success in club competitions. Photography qualifications have also happened fairly quickly and I obtained my LRPS in March 2011, CPAGB in April 2012, ARPS in September 2012 and DPAGB in April 2013. I have also had over 400 acceptances in FIAP Salons Internationally and achieved AFIAP in 2013 and EFIAP in 2014.

In the N&EMFP 2013 Annual Exhibition one of my Projected Digital Images (PDI) was selected as the best colour image and overall winner of the Peter Henson Shield for the Best Digital image.  In 2015 another of my images was selected, as one of a panel of ten prints, to represent Great Britain in the FIAP Colour Print Biennial. Great Britain came second overall, out of 26 countries, and I was awarded a PAGB Gold Medal.

Long Exposures

The use of long exposure techniques i.e. between ¼ second and 4 minutes has been of special interest to me for some time. One of my images was accepted into the Landscape Photographer of The Year Book 5 and another was accepted by the Royal Photographic Society for their Digital Imaging Group annual exhibition. During my talk I will show a wide range of images, mainly landscapes and seascapes.  I will also discuss the equipment required, including filters, as well as explain some of the problems that may occur.

After the interval, I will give my “Tale of Ten Images” talk where I explain how I created ten of my Long Exposure images, including converting RAW files for printing and digital projection, and how I edited them in Lightroom and Photoshop. I will also display about ten prints – if time and facilities allow for this.

Time: Approximately 90 minutes.

Unfortunately Stuart’s website prohibits reproduction of any of his images so you will just have to come along on Thursday to see his work.
