& Themed Competition

The results were. First,  Annie Watt. Second, Michael Barron. Joint third, Chris Jary & Michael Barron

On the first Saturday in June the 'Friends of Berwick Castle Parks' held an open Parks and Gardens Day. It included a trail that enabled folk to take a peek into about a dozen private gardens. There was a chance to relax in most, soak up the sun and perhaps find some ideas for your own garden.

Also on the trail was an exhibition in the nearby William Elder Building. It was mounted by the Berwick & District Camera Club and featured pictures of the Parks through out the Year.

Visitors were able to vote for their favourite.

Members travelled out to Coldstream for the July Summer Shoot. It was held amid the rhododendrons at the Hirsel.

Michael Barron, Derek Hood,  Maggie & Chris Jary  braved the odd midge and enjoyed a beautiful evening.

Pictured here doing some colourful picturing are Alex Aitcheson and  Annie Watt.

INTENTIONAL CAMERA MOVEMENT

 

Maggie Jary  demonstrated how to use the camera to create abstract images.

A combination of longer exposure and neutral density  filters enabled more to be extracted from the scene than first met the eye.

 

Prictures shown were taken in Venice and captured movement and colour

A SEA OF RAINBOWS was the title of the video produced by Ian Cartwright.

 

The superb images, some of great complexity and beauty were  merged together in a kaleidoscope of colour. They were accompanied by the soothing music of the Flower Song by Delibes.

 

The pictures were taken at close range by Ian during dives in Indonesia. During a question and answer session he explained the importance of flash in capturing the vivid colours

The workshop was so popular that there was hardly room to fit in another tripod.

Under Alan Brown direction members used  long exposures to capture the fascinating patterns traced in the dark.

20190122Leas-McLean

It  proved to be a very popular evening and there  was not a  chair to spare for  the talk given by Les McLean .

 

Photography that captured the essence of humanity with images that ranged from lovers in a clinch to children caught up in Northern Ireland's 'troubles',  all featured in Les's work.

His landscapes ranged from Northumberland trees traced in the snow of winter to intricate patterns in the rocks and sands of Americas Death Valley.

Harking back to the days before photography became  digital he explained how he made mulitple exposures to create an image.

 

During the 90’s Les gave up a  boring accountancy job to concentrate on fine art photography and writing. During the years that followed he concentrated  on the art side of photography rather than the commercial market. He has never regretted it and has written articles for numerous photographic magazines

19th February 2019      TAKEN, FOUND, ARCHIVED by Cameron Robertson   

The club enjoyed a fascinating evening when guest soeaker Cameron Robertson delved into the detective work involved in puting together s photograhic archive.

 

One of the main subjects was recording the history of William Cowes  confectionary business in Bridge Street which in its time was famed for the production  of a unique sweet, the 'Berwick Cockles'

 

Cameron also brought to the screen images of fashions and faces in the town rescued from negatives on photograhic plates used in news coverage before the digital age set in.
