Soldiers and Fire

Hi all

This week is ‘soldiers and fire’. After much hunting I think we have found a location that is safe and where we are allowed replica guns at HECCSport, Sawbridgeworth, CM21 0LL.

Due to the hot weather I’m not going to do any ‘fire,’ now, but Steve is going to dress up in full Army gear and hopefully give us some great moody shots with an authentic setting as well.The location is Tharbies Farm, Rook End, High Wych.

Additionally tonight, Frank has asked for the following to be shared:-

“Yep, I’ve done it, I’ve got an 810.
This means that I have a D800E for sale for £1,300.00 inc. VAT.
The camera has 4,800 actuations, boxed as new – nothing missing.”

Ongoing Summer Programme

Kniphofia Vincent Lepage (print)Hi all,

This Tuesday we are meeting at Hopleys garden centre in Much Hadham at 7:30pm. Don’t worry if you are running late as it will be easy to find us.

We get the full run of the gardens and nursery so there are lots of great photo opportunities and I highly recommend bringing your macro lenses if you have them.

They opened the coffee shop for us last year as well, but I don’t want to make assumptions that they will do the same this year.

On a separate note, if anyone has an iPad 2 and uses CF memory cards in their camera, Andrew has an adapter which can read your pictures onto your tablet for sale – it also does SD and miniSD cards, and USB.

The Triumph of Hope

Hi all,

What a fantastic evening we had last week doing outside portraiture at the cricket fields; I’ve never seen so many fantastic pictures from one evening on Facebook and Flickr. The sunset was fabulous for such an evening.

Let’s hope this week is as good. We are meeting in Baroosh at 7:30 and going to walk around Stortford and try some street photography. It’s worth noting that every year we have tried this before it’s been torrential rain, so fingers crossed we will be fine.

Early Update

Hi everyone,

This week I’m sending out the info about Tuesday a bit early as I’m in Norfolk this weekend and well, as for phone signal they are in the dark ages!  This Tuesday we are meeting by the cricket club on the cricket fields, Cricketfield Lane, Bishop’s Stortford, CM23 2SR at 7:30pm.  You should be able to park along the road or in the cricket club car park as long as there is not an event on.

The plan for the evening is outside portraiture and indivisible background techniques, so if you have got an off camera flash please bring it with you and if not, maybe a reflector (even card and tinfoil will work).

Here is a link to Glyn Dewis’ technique

See you on Tuesday.

The Carnival is over (for the year)

My neighbour died recently, and celebrated a good life with a rendition of the (original) Seekers song “The Carnival is Over” in Russian to leave us all at Great Parndon.  Very moving.  The town carnival wasn’t quite so dramatic, but a good cadre of members risked deafness to man our marquee, photograph the procession, and . . . → Read More: The Carnival is over (for the year)
