Putney Group October Update 2017

Another great turnout this month and good to see you all.

We started the meeting with a look at the following and I would draw your particular attention to the last item, which is a fabulous blog looking at the history of the Magnum Photo Agency and some of its founding members, fascinating:

On the road pictures
An old snap shot of Hong Kong
Countryfile October 1st edition and this year’s winning calendar pictures.
Swapper essay – with short film in the middle

We then took a look at results from this month’s theme, which ‘combined’, where we asked members to combine two or more pictures using software, or some pictures on a combined theme. I personally found the theme to very challenging, but members came up with some stunning images, and Leonard’s in particular caught my ‘eye’.


Leonard Caudrey

David and Mike have graphic design backgrounds and this theme really showed off what they can do, with images containing many exposures to capture exactly the quality they were after.

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 21st November at 7.30pm where our theme will be ‘blue’ and I look forward to seeing everyone then. November is also the month that we have our exhibition at The Exchange (17/18/19) and for those not involved it would be good to see you along to support the rest of us.
