Walk On By

February 24, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

At the meeting on 2nd March, Two of the clubs Special Interest Groups will be giving presentations:

The Nature Group and Walk on By.

Nature needs no introduction but what is Walk On By?

Well, this started when it occurred to me that:

  • as photographers we make life difficult for ourselves when we are forever seeking evermore exciting subjects to photograph which often involve considerable time and expenditure to get to and
  • ignore the subject matter that surrounds us in our everyday lives that
  • some skilled photographers can turn into beautiful or thought provoking images

In other words, it is about developing the skills to photograph the things that we would normally "Walk On By".

Walk on By has an overlap with Street Photography. So, people are legitimate Walk on By subject as well, providing they are part of a scene that is not a classic shot.

Having had the initial idea, I asked Chris Bussicott to take leadership of the group as I knew Chris was a great exponent of this skill and with Monica providing feedback, she being our Walk On By "Yoda". Chris has lead the group with great enthusiasm but will unfortunately be away on the 2nd. So I will introduce the group, some of our members will talk about their images and Monica will chip in with commentary and sum things up for us.

I think you will be impressed!

Pay close attention because we are bringing in elements of Walk On By as part of a theme for next season! Monica will give a Walk On By presentation, Steve Kingswell will talk on some techniques that can be applied (to this and any other genre) and Alan Thompson will gibe a talk on local photography. There will also be (subject to confirmation) a Set Subject Competition based on Walk On By.

regards

Eddie
