On Friday 21st October Hugh Milsom FRPS MFIAP and Pat Broad ARPS AFIAP introduced us to their photography with their talk ‘Mainly Landscapes’. Hugh is an accomplished photographer, writer and lecturer specialising in fine art landscape photography. His interest in photography goes back to the early 30’s, starting as a hobby but eventually becoming a way of life for him. His early days were, of course, in the dark room, but he has now fully embraced the joys of digital cameras and the power of the computer. He doesn’t photograph in full sunlight, preferring misty, moody, low light days to produce images resulting in trees and scenery which are close to watercolour paintings. Check his website (http://www.hughmilsomphotography.co.uk) to see more of his photography. Pat and Hugh work well together, and Pat’s photography is very similar in soft pastel colours. Pat is a member of Hailsham Photographic Society and you can view some of her images on their website (http://www.hailshamphotographicsociety.co.uk/pat-broad-arpsefiap.html). They both use colour sparingly but to great effect. We saw beautiful images from both of them taken in Iceland and Tuscany, and closer to home showing their obvious love of the countryside. They were good speakers, keeping us impressed and entertained for the whole of the evening.
The following are a selection of Hugh and Pat's photographs:

Next Friday, 28th October Gary Carter CPAGB will be judging the Tony Culver Trophy Portrait Competition. Visitors welcome.
