Re: Home of Photography

One further thought about progress of photography. In the early days, emulsions reacted so slowly to light that exposure times were measured in minutes. Shutters did not exist as all that was needed was a lens cap and watch to get the desired result. Precise accuracy of the duration that the lens wa...

Avebury Imagined

A further teaser for my presentation at the club next Wednesday, "Getting the Shot". I "took" this at Avebury on Monday when the weather conditions were nothing like what I show here. It was raining when I arrived and the sky remained overcast after it stopped. It is quite possib...

Home of Photography

I visited Lacock Abbey recently. It is where Fox Talbot, one of the pioneers of photography lived. Contrary to what we used to be told, photography was a French invention and Fox Talbot's contribution was the introduction of the negative which allowed multiple copies of prints to be made. The first ...

Re: Colour From Mono

After trying images that are solely digital, I wondered about how adding colour to those taken on black and white film would look. Once again, results were mixed. I did not see the issue with purple colourisation occur to the same extent but that might be due to the selection of subjects. Overall, c...

Colour From Mono

A while back, I posted a shot of a colourful image taken with a camera that only shoots monochrome as it was what I had with me at the time. http://forums.croydoncameraclub.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3834&p=16628#p16628 By chance, I have come across an article about creating colour images fr...

Candles

As Storm Barra blew in the other week, I drove down to Winchester. Needless to say, the weather did not encourage lingering outside and I ended up spending a lot of time in the cathedral. The interior does not receive much light at the best of times and with the skies dark from the raging storm it w...

David Keep - Behind the Scenes

David Keep, who gave us a fabulous presentation about underwater photography last season and will be back in February, has released a couple of short behind the scenes videos that are worth looking at. The first involves fencing (the sport, not border control ;) ) and the other a home studio shoot o...

Re: Why print?

.....I thought the printing was supposed to add an extra level of skill - choosing papers, choosing why to print a particular photo, how to present it, how to achieve best colour/tones etc. Hi Andy I was not at the meeting so cannot comment on what occurred but do know that the judge is newly quali...
