A photographic festive break
Members of Retford and District Photographic Society can hardly believe they are already half way through their new season — and a very successful time it has been with record numbers attending, some excellent speakers and great practical opportunities.
They return for the start of the second half on 7th January. There is great variety on the programme for the rest of the year including flash, motor sport, composition, nature, railways, monochrome and several competitions.
They start with a session when two members will tell more about their very different styles of photography. Des Lloyd is well known for his stunning images of nature, mostly birds and hares. The group are looking forward to seeing more of his work and learning how he does it, although to achieve what he does they will have to develop the skill and patience themselves. Alan Dibbo likes architecture and has set himself various projects, one of which was to photograph all the cathedral ceilings in the country. Members have seen a fair few of his images which portray the beauty and symmetry to be found. Alan enjoys stately homes as subjects and these are much more with the reach of the rest of us.
The society look forward to seeing members and welcoming visitors when they meet at 7.30pm on Monday 7th January and weekly at the same time in St Joseph’s Hall, Babworth Road, Retford until the end of April 2019. Visitors are invited to contact the society through their website if they are planning to go along so members can look out for you. For more information see www.retford-photographic.co.uk.
