Geddington and Newton WI was back in person last week, enjoying the presentation on photography from local resident Trevor Rudkin. Trevor is not a professional photographer; in fact he made teaching his career but his discovery of photography as a young man developed into a lifelong passion.
The meeting in the village hall brought together about 40 members who were delighted by the range of photographs Trevor had brought with him to illustrate the skills and creativity in his work. The choice of background, the use of black and white, the variation in focus and the position of figures captured in an image gave us all a real insight into improving our own skills. We did note too that, while a good camera is essential, the patience to wait for the right moment to create a picture is absolutely vital!
A really enjoyable evening.
