Feb 28th – Light is Everything – Bill Allsop

Bill will be returning to give a further talk. This should be a good night.

Light is Everything - pdi talk which starts off looking at the work of Belgian pictorialist Leonard Missonne who said “Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most commonplace and ordinary subjects. The object is nothing; light is everything.” We then go on to look at many different kinds of light and hopefully see there is no such thing as ‘bad light’. This talk is designed to make relative beginners in photography think about the ways light can be used to enhance their photographs and introduce some mood be it restful or dramatic.

Full details of Bill and his work will be found at :

14th Feb 2019 – Local Projects and Creative Techniques – Chris Dale

Chris will be looking at how project work, repeated visits and experimenting with creative abstract techniques can help to make the most of even an uninspiring location.

About Chris Dale 

I’m Chris Dale, a photographer based in Nottingham, England.

My photography comes from the enjoyment of being out in the woodland and countryside, unwinding from life’s stresses and being surrounded by nature.
A lot of my work is focussed on the local area, which isn’t known for big vistas. This has led me to look at the landscape differently, trying to capture the essence of the place at that time, rather than a straight representation. While most of my photos have no obvious landmark I aim to portray the different elements that make up a location, from the wider views to small details and abstract interpretations.

More recently I have been focussing almost entirely on abstract and project work.
My images have been published, exhibited and awarded in major competitions.
