Please note that there is a change to next week’s meeting, 12th November. Charlie Wheeler is unable to attend for his wildlife talk on that evening. He sends his apologies and hopes that we can re-schedule him in for another date. (I’m sure we can!) Instead, we are fortunate to be able to welcome Lara Jane Thorpe back to the club for an evening of food photography. This has been a very popular evening in the past and hopefully will be again on Tuesday. The first half of the evening Lara will give a presentation of her most recent work and then the second half will be a workshop. For those who are not familiar with her work; Lara is a professional photographer who lives in this area. She specialises in food photography, has her images featured in national magazines and works for major restaurants and food manufacturers. For the workshop, it would be great if members could bring along anything that they would like to include in this category. This could be fruit and vegetables (the more colourful the better) sweets, seeds and stuff like star anise always look good on a contrasting background. Bring along any unusual plates or cutlery if you can, but don’t worry too much as Lara always brings a lot of her own props. A tripod and a flash or torch can be useful too. It’s always a fun, informal second half and an opportunity to photograph something a bit different.
