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.
