The latest meeting was held over Zoom and was presented by Nicholas.
Thanks to John for setting up the meeting as usual.
After an initial screen-sharing hiccup, Nicholas shared with us some thoughts and ideas on landscape photography whilst emphasising how to utilise your smartphone to achieve the best outcomes. This was followed up with a summary of an earlier talk Nicholas had given on how to use the camera/camera app on your phone.
Nicholas also showed us a short video by Thomas Heaton, who regularly posts vlogs on YouTube. In this video he cast a critical eye over some of his own landscape photos, pointing out deficiencies in areas such as lack of a strong subject, imbalance in composition and empty space as opposed to negative space.
The slides used in both talks can be found on Google Drive by following this link.

Each year, for the past dozen years or more, Clonakilty Camera Club has held a photographic exhibition of members’ work in the Celtic Ross Hotel. Money for a nominated charity has been raised through the sale of exhibited photographs and proceeds from a raffle held on the Opening Night of the exhibition.
