River Avon at Evesham
Dawn Photo Walk, Saturday 28th September

The weather was dry and mild and although the golden hour could have been better the handful of BPC Members who got up at silly o'clock to capture the River Avon at Hampton Ferry as the sun rose over the Vale of Evesham were rewarded with some stunning reflections.

Many thanks to Kevin for the following...

Foundation Photographers' Walkabout
The Old Bridge, Pershore - 26th June 2019

The second FP walk of the week was colder and windier than the first one! The sky was bland and the colour of putty, the light failed early and the river was running too fast for any ducks or swans to make an appearance.

Having said all of that, the group faced up to the challenge and worked on techniques including the exposure triangle, and in particular different shutter speeds, composition and using artificial light.

Some nice work all round.

Foundation Photographers' Walkabout
Pershore - 24th June 2019

Many thanks to everyone for taking time out for the first photography walk of two this week.

We all struggled with the flat light, no shadows and not a great deal in and around Pershore to inspire, however, the following shows that even on a dull evening there's something to be achieved.

Many thanks to Mark for explaining ICM (intentional camera movement) which we all had some fun playing with!

Here are a few images and notes:
