Images & Music

This combined evening offers full rein to your creativity!

Your chance to offer the club an insight into your archive......set to music or other soundtrack. (Video sequences should, ideally, be no longer than 5 minutes in duration.) Please be prepared to talk about how you put your sequence together so that others may learn from your experience.

Images (print or projected) inspired by a piece of music

Theme 1 Take a Photo which is an alternative Album Cover for a Music Album. Whether Pop, Rock, Heavy Metal, Jazz, Country or Blues, albums often have dull, lacklustre covers and and I'm sure we could do better. We'd like you to take a photo which illustrates the Album title. It's your own interpretation so you can be as creative, literal or humorous as you like.

Theme 2 Take a Photo which illustrates a Song Title, from 'Stairway to Heaven' to 'My baby just cares for me' there's a song title out there asking for a Photo.

Theme 3 An image which is an illustrates a line or two of song lyric e.g. In Penny Lane 'There is a barber showing photographs'

Guess the Album Cover - repeated by popular request. Offer an image and those present need to guess which album or track it represents.

A few notes that might help...

There's no outside judge so no stress. You can reveal the Album, Song or Lyric you've interpreted or ask club members to guess on the night. We're looking for your imagination, your interpretation and your creativity rather than technically perfect photos. You can use images from your archive and linked to an album cover (snow photos for The Beatles - White Album, for instance, but new photos would be good too. Any of your music-themed photos can be entered into subsequent monthly competitions.

SUMMER EVENT : Trip to Dungeness (with overnight)

A bit like the Highcliffe trip, but without the competition with a local club, the idea is to take photos en route, explore the local area (including Derek Jarman’s garden), have dinner and stay in a local hotel and then travel back the following day with a few more photo stops.

 

Please contact Kristin or Amanda if you are interested.

TALK | Cliff Hide: "The Stories behind the Pictures"

They say that every picture tells a story; sometimes light-hearted, every now and then actually humorous, and occasionally deeply tragic.

Cliff shares his favourite press photos from throughout his extensive career and talks about the circumstances that led up to being there for the photographically critical moment.

The right place at the right time. Sounds easy enough…?

Biog:

Cliff Hide has been a press photographer since 2010 after a career change away from the financial and PR worlds of the City. He is currently Business Picture Editor at The Times newspaper and has worked on the picture desks of papers such as The Mirror, Metro, Sunday Times and the (short-lived) New Day.
