Club Report - Talk by Wonky Horizons

Marjorie Burge writes:

An excellent evening of photography from Wonky Horizons – Anthony Baines ARPS CPAGB, Philip Hinton ARPS and Martin Till LRPS – on Friday 11th November. Visiting Comic Con in London Anthony and Philip claimed themselves a clear section of wall to isolate their images from the 130,000 visitors. Batman, Star Wars, Harry Potter, even Wonder Woman was there and all eager to be photographed. Martin’s photography was far away from such hustle and bustle, rising early to catch St Michael’s Mount at sunrise, stonechats at a nearby nature reserve, then sitting in complete peace in a sculpture garden before moving on to Dartmoor landscapes, grey wagtails and dippers.

Anthony talked us through his entry in the Care on Camera competition which took him into close contact with the carers and their patients, and out of more than 800 entries he was awarded the Gold Award for his photograph. Check their website for winning images.

In the second half Martin showed some stunning images of kingfishers and butterflies, and talked us through his preparation in relation to the use of natural light and the patience required to capture images from a hide. Anthony’s love of aircraft photography is well-known and he took us on his travels to airfields and shows, explaining everything in detail from early morning at Stow Maries to Spitfires at Duxford. Phil explained how he uses emotion and art in his portrait photography, using textures and blending to perfect his unique images. There were musicians from St Mary’s concerts, beautiful wistful models, strange almost hidden images, ancient mariners. The evening ended far too soon.
