Club Report - A Talk By Cathy Roberts

Marjorie Burge writes:

On Friday, 17th March we were treated to a delightful evening of photography when Cathy Roberts EFIAP FRPS DPAGB BPE2*, a member of Arena, Mirage and Beckenham Photographic Society, gave her talk on ‘Ways of Seeing’, and this, it must be stressed, is Cathy’s way of seeing. We were shown beautiful misty images of dancers where only their movement was captured, the lightest impressions of flowers, and isolated trees in vast snowy landscapes. Cathy’s love of and enthusiasm for photography was obvious, - she was infectious and inspiring in everything she did. Happy to do extra work on images, lots of dodging and burning, use of infra red, light boxes and tissue paper, a love of prints and colour but also happy to convert to black and white, a lot of her inspiration taken from established artists and photographers. Serendipity indeed – a talent for making fortunate discoveries while searching for other things. Congratulations to our team for bringing Cathy to APS and if you were unable to be with us on Friday, find her images at
