Friday was a Club Night and Nicholas Hill ARPS showed images under the title of “The Beauty of India”, from his recent visit to Jaipur, Pushkar and Varanasi. An excellent narrative took us on his travels through the wonderful countryside, architecture and people that make these area so attractive to photographers. His technical experience and pure love of photography was evident. Rising early meant he caught the morning light, so important to the gentle colours in the ancient buildings, and careful approach and interaction meant his portraits, particularly of the holy men and the camel traders, caught the their way of life as well as the person. Using a Medium Format Pentax and portable studio lighting Nicholas was able to capture some stunning images. Little wonder that he is USA Landscape Photographer of the Year. A great evening of photography enjoyed by all at APS.
