Speaker Evening: Nick Jenkins ARPS AWPF @ Cowdray Hall | Easebourne | United Kingdom

“Black & White are the Colours of Photography”

The evening will be one of “show and tell” rather than simply “went there, saw that”. It is Nick’s journey into Black & White photography, warts and all, and questions/comments are very welcome.

Nick Jenkins is an award-winning landscape photographer whose love of the more remote areas has taken him to the less populated corners of this country. He has been an outdoor photographer for over 30 years; 15 years ago decided to take the plunge and go professional.

He runs workshops (Freespirit Images) around the UK. He has also tutored for, amongst others, Light & Land Photographic Holidays, Tatra Photography, Gwent College and HF Holidays.

Nick is an Associate of both the Royal Photographic Society and the Welsh Photographic Federation.

Workshop – Camera Basics – Ask The Experts @ Cowdray Hall
Sep 20 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

What to bring:

Your camera, camera manual, and tripod

What to expect:

The evening will be mainly centred around DSLR and CSC/Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras. At the last count most members were using Canon or Nikon cameras so there will be plenty of expert help on hand for these. Some members are using Olympus and Panasonic MFT system cameras so there will be some help on hand for these also. If you are not using any of the above we will help you as far as we can so it is important that everyone should bring their camera manuals. The aim of this and future workshops is to get everyone out of the automatic modes. Subjects covered will include using Program, Aperture, Shutter/TV, and Manual Modes, Metering Modes, ISO, Image Stabilisation, and using a tripod/monopod. We will also discuss lenses.

Clive will be giving us an insight into why he is regarded as Britain’s leading garden and plant photographer.

Speaker Evening: Roy Matthews @ Cowdray Hall | Easebourne | United Kingdom

“Light Painting Still Life”

Roy started his photographic career 30 years ago with publishing house Hodder & Stoughton producing book cover artwork and author portraits. After a number of years as head of studio photography he turned freelance in 1990. Over the years he has worked for many mainstream clients producing commercial work in a number of different areas including travel, editorial, studio advertising and fashion. In recent years Roy has also been leading various photographic workshops for a variety of clients including the Royal Academy of Arts and West Dean College.

Discover the techniques of photographic light painting and add a new dimension to your still life images.

Lighting your still life using various hand held light sources not only allows for precise control of where the light falls, but results in uniquely styled & painterly looking images.

Through presentation and practical demonstration, the evening will explore the secrets of the light painting technique including how to apply the light to your subject for different effects & looks, using different light sources and final post processing of the images.
