This Friday at KPS ...

On 28th July Kingswood Photographic Society members are at Clevedon Pier, meeting at 7.30pm by the entrance to the Pier. 

We are being allowed to take tripods onto the Pier, a kind offer as this is not the normal practice.  The organisers have asked that we each pay £5 for this privilege which is much better than the £10 originally quoted!

Put the postcode BS21 7QU into your SatNat system to help guide you to Clevedon Pier (http://clevedonpier.co.uk/), which was described by Sir John Betjeman as ‘The most beautiful pier in England’.  My suggestion is to avoid using the motorway if you can as delays are sure to happen!

It would be great to see as many members as possible and hopefully the weather will be fine.  My mobile no. 07899 014523 should you need it. See you there, Dave Dimond, Social Secretary.

This Friday at KPS ...

Kingswood Photographic Society is absolutely delighted to welcome Roy Jacobson CPAGB, as their speaker on Friday 21st July who will be giving a digital image presentation entitled Share the View Through my Lens.

Roy says: “The core of my talk will be presenting wildlife (mainly UK) with an emphasis on birds. There will also be 20-30 minutes of aviation photography in which I hope to include pictures from the Royal International Air Tattoo which took place over last weekend.

I enjoy taking wildlife portraits but especially movement, action and interaction between species as well as wildlife in black and white when it suits the mood.

Although a different subject, it is similar with aviation in that I am always looking to promote movement if needed to enhance an image.

I love the unexpected with wildlife and it is so important to build species awareness allowing you to anticipate those special moments which we are all so pleased to capture.”

As well as his presentation, Roy will bring around 20 mounted prints for members to view during the break.

This promises to be an absolutely excellent evening so we hope to see you there.

Kingswood PS meet Fridays from 7.30pm to around 9.30pm at St Barnabas Church Hall, Warmley, Bristol BS30 5JJ.  Visitors are most welcome and the cost for this evening is £3.00.
