Club Report - "Back to the Future" A Talk By Richard Walton FRPS MPAGB EFIAP

Marjorie Burge writes:

A thoroughly enjoyable evening on Friday 25th November when Richard Walton FRPS MPAGB EFIAP gave his talk ‘Back to the Future’. Richard started lecturing and judging in Kent in 1994 and has developed his own personal take on photography from that time onwards. For a full list of his achievements go to where all will be revealed. His talk on Friday was centred around his use of Permajet (having been invited to join their Lecturer’s team in 2014) and the personal choice between colour and mono. Richard obviously favours mono but does use colour in moderation, pointing out that anything too brightly coloured often took attention away from the main focal point of the image. He showed the same images in mono and colour, leaving us to make our own choice, but explaining his preference and the reason for his decision, and also used different Permajet papers to show how the resulting image was affected. ‘Photography must be fun’ said Richard, and his travels around the coastal towns showed his ability to find that sense of fun mixed in with some serious photography. An instructive evening but also an evening of brilliant photography enjoyed by all.
