A huge thank you to our guest speaker for October, local photographer Chris Dale, who gave a talk: Local Projects & Creative Techniques.
Chris’s talk and superb photos gave us an insight into his approach to outdoor photography, which has been driven by our local area and makes the most of what is on our doorstep, rather than travelling to big landscapes.
Chris shared a selection of images from some of his favourite local areas and his personal projects, explaining some of the techniques he uses.
Chris advocates experimenting, revisiting locations and looking at the smaller details.
It really was an eye-opener of a talk!
A good number of members have already been putting some of Chris’s advice and ideas into practice – you can see some fine examples on our Facebook page – clearly they found Chris a breath of fresh air and an inspiration when it comes to seeing things differently and trying something new.
