This, That and Street Photography
posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings
And another great evening! This was the visit by guest speaker Peter Crane ARPS who we already knew as an expert in street photography.
Well – this was something more as the title suggests – and we experienced a wide range of Peter’s superb image making! We were taken on a tour of places and sights which included amazing wildlife, stunning scenery and of course towns and cities.
Peter’s wildlife shots captured near to his home and further away – in Scotland for example – show the birds and animals in their habitats – doing what they do naturally! We saw beautiful foxes, stoats, red squirrels, kingfishers and owls to name but a few - oh yes - even intertwined adders!!
Then there were plants and trees – at different times of the year - such as autumn at Glen Affric and also the winter illuminated trees at Westonbirt Arboretum.
Of course his street photography is superb – catching moments of life, especially the unusual or just eye-catching. People figure heavily (so to speak!) some knowing they are being photographed (some posing!) and some totally unaware. Peter tells some great stories of his urban expeditions – including some of the difficulties met!
Peter’s images show his flair for composition and for creativity – minute details in the street or in nature which include abstract photography. So an evening both to enjoy and inspire. We clearly enjoyed it – and hope to see more of Peter’s work in the not too distant future!
