Pictures on PermaJet by Irene Froy, EFIAP, MPAGB, HonPAGB

A slightly extended version of a print talk which covers images from Holland, Portugal, France and England. There are landscapes and flowers as well as buildings inside and out. Some frost, some mist and some more colourful shots too. Hopefully enough variety to have something for everyone with some reference to the techniques used to achieve the results illustrated. Most of the pictures are taken while Irene is on holiday as that gives her time for her photography. (Commentary using voice-over)

Have I Got Nudes For You - Words and Pictures by Tim Pile and production by Robert Albright

This CD outlines the story of Tim’s meteoric rise from his first steps in digital photography in 2008 to his MPAGB in 2013 and how he came to specialise in fine art nudes, capturing the beauty of the female form.  Part of Tim’s secret is his constant search for locations for his images that are a bit different and, in just a few years, he has produced an amazing body of work from this one genre.  Most will have seen at least some of his award winning exhibition pictures which are all included, with explanations of where and how he produced them.  If you have not seen one of Tim’s club presentations you must book this show and, if you have seen him lecture before, prepare to be entranced all over again.
