Club Report–Members Night (Friday 8th May)

Marjorie Burge writes:

Club Night on Friday 8th May was an opportunity for APS ladies to show their work and explain a little about their approach to photography. Reasons were varied from family influence at a very early age, to finding more time in retirement. Helen Taylor, by far our most experienced photographer, showed her dark room prints including some lovely portraits and explained techniques; Avril Christensen marked her progress through photography from early family photos and travels in the Andes, to her newest camera; Lesley Parker had a set of images from Doha with some stunning lights and reflections from the skyscrapers; Linda Thackeray had taken a hazardous Antarctic cruise and showed wonderful icebergs, and chinstrap and gentoo penguins; Suie Cheung’s still-life images had been put together with great care to give unique images of perfection; I showed some favourite prints and explained titles, an essential part of the presentation of an image but often difficult to find. As a participant I can say that I really enjoyed having the stage to show and talk before an appreciative audience, and I’m sure the other ladies would agree.
