HOSTING: Match-a-Digi

Fast, furious and friendly competition between EHHPS, Field End Photographic Society and Pinner Camera Club. This year, EHHPS is hosting.

How it works:
Each club comes with a bank of 40 images
There are 36 rounds of three images, one from each club, with the clubs taking it in turn to start (so each club ends up with 4 ‘spare’ images)

The images in the competition are judged, both photographically and as the nearest match to the first image in the round.  

Judge: Alan Taberer

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.

TALK | George/Mary Ann Auckland "The image technology of the Magic Lantern"

The Magic Lantern is part of the marvellous world of optical projection and lantern slides can be found in many a second-hand shop. But how were they originally shown and to whom? From Samuel Pepys to the dawn of cinema, magic lantern shows ruled the world of the projected image and by Victorian times had become very sophisticated. The images on the slides themselves were works of art requiring highly skilled colourists and rival contemporary high definition pictures. Photography opened many more doors for magic lanterns.

Be entertained, be amazed, be there.

 

A bit of background: 

On 28 December 1895 Louis and August Lumière gave their first public showing of the Cinématographe at the Grand Cafe, Boulevard des Capucines, Paris.

One conventional view says that from then on the lantern took second place. However, though the birth of the moving picture and its rapid growth certainly changed the world of the lantern, the reports of its death were very much exaggerated. Although less widely used for public entertainment, lantern projection continued in widespread use in areas like education and religious instruction.

From the 1900s onwards many of the smaller family lantern or slide businesses disappeared or were amalgamated with larger firms, but there were still lantern and slide suppliers trading until after the Second World War. From the 1950s the projected image found new uses and forms in the shape of the 35mm slide and new designs of projector like the Kodak Carousel.

EVENT | Images & Music & A/V night

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 from last year. 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.

Special Bonus: John Clare will give a brief demonstration of his drone. Though many use drones for moving images, John's intention is, primarily, to use the drone to capture stills from points of view not normally available to ground-based photographers. Indeed, close followers of the EHHPS will know that John recently had one of his drone images published in The Telegraph. Programme Secretary, Kristin Mason is also talking with John to arrange a full, outside demonstration with John later in the season.

TALK | Benjamin Graham "Learning to see creatively"

 

EHHPS is delighted to welcome back Benjamin to the club to talk about his year as Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017, and reflect on both his year as LPOTY and share  images from some of his commissions ranging from electricity pylons to tube stations.

Ben says "...come drizzle, depression or drama, I see it as my task to endeavour to make something of all light and of every scenic opening that presents itself to me, to spot prospects and to try and use all conditions to my advantage....[and] once I am established on location and I identify the textures, tones and patterns that I have to work with, pre-visualisation becomes a major part of the process.   I try not to be formulaic and I make a point of regularly venturing outside my comfort zone, exploring new ideas, unexpected situations and different settings."

Ben's work regularly appears in major newspapers, magazines and online editorial galleries and he has had images published in numerous countries, including the US, Italy, France, Ireland, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Poland, Russia, Australia and China.

EVENT | Images in the Style of.... and Photo Book show & tell

Print or projected, this is your opportunity to show a picture inspired by another author, a painting, or a specific style.

After the break…

The photo book: the way we capture a hold-in-your hand album of images, be they for a specific project or a memorable trip. The ordering, the relative qualities and costs are talked about but, without first-hand experience, it can be something of a lottery. We’d love it if you brought along one or two of the books you’ve had made, especially if you’ve used different suppliers, and be prepared to talk about the book and how you put it together.
