Upcoming events


10/12/2018      A Passion for Printing

Derek Doar

A mix of monochrome and colour, mainly landscapes but with some natural history. Derek will talk about his method of monochrome conversion as well as how he takes and prints both HDR and panoramic images.

7:30 PM - 10:00 PM @ Sheldon Suite, Newark Showground

17/12/2018      The Creative Power of the Monochrome Image

Simon Watkinson

Covering all aspects of shooting black & white, from start to finish, including the light needed to create a mood suitable for black and white Landscapes and Portraits.

Simon will show how removing colour creates powerful and timeless travel images; and images of poverty with a grittiness, solemnness and isolation, that would be lost in colour.

Time will be spent on processing monochrome in Lightroom and Photoshop.

7:30 PM - 10:00 PM @ Sheldon Suite, Newark Showground
