Every Picture Tells a Story

posted by Alan Copeland in Club Meetings

After an absence of seven years, Peter Preece was our guest speaker this week with a presentation of stunning Natural History images on the theme "Every Picture Tells a Story."

Peter thrilled the audience with beautiful photographs of a wide range of subjects and he was very fluent in sharing his stories as each image appeared on the screen.

It was fascinating to see and hear how Peter sets up his shots and his stories covered locations and backgrounds, baiting up by placing nuts and food items just to the side (out of camera shot) to tempt the birds on to the set.

Peter's skill and knowledge of Natural History and Photography became very clear throughout the evening, particularly when he said that he doesn't use Photoshop in his imaging (I'd be lost without it !).

This was a seriously good evening and I hope that we won't have to wait another seven years before we see Peter again.
