Around half of our evenings are lectures where we invite guest speakers to present to us. The speakers are often professional photographers who talk about their photographs or specific photographic techniques.
Some of our recent speakers include;
Dave Rudeforth – January 2015
“High Speed Photography” https://www.idtvision.com
“This was an absolutely brilliant presentation. Dave started with an introduction to the history of high-speed photography taking us through the technology as it developed explaining the challenges of shooting at ultra high speed and showing some truly remarkable pieces of slow motion video. Dave brought along a number of cameras and some portable lighting so the evening culminated with shooting a live demo at 4000 frames per second”
