Sadly, the Society’s traditional exhibition in the café area of the Wyllyotts Centre cannot take place this year and so we have moved it on-line. Welcome to our 2020 Winter Exhibition.
The various restrictions brought about by COVID 19 have led many members to look for subject matter closer to home, sometime as close to home as their kitchen table. The exhibition shows a range of subjects and techniques. Some members have taken older pictures and developed new post production processing techniques while others have had the time to work on their close-up (macro) photography techniques. A wide range of subjects is covered including portrait, performance, travel and natural history. Hopefully “something for everyone”

Member comment related to their pictures:
Image 1 and 5 by Helen Frost “Reflections on the beach” This was in New Zealand. When I win the lottery I will move here. New sky and reflection added ( I used the restrictions to improve my photoshop skills)
“The City from the country” is an obviously false view of Tower Bridge. The wooden pier was taken in Cumbria and the two joined. Again, a lockdown challenge !!
Image 13 and 14 by Colin Strong “Motor Cycle Repairs”. This young lad and many others were using the Kolkata roadside as a repair workshop for their motor cycles.
“Kolkata Food Stall”: Typical of street-side stalls in Kolkata. The stall owners were happy to be photographed.
Image 15 and 18 by Yve Paige I’m a huge fan of Rod Stewart and have followed him since a young age. There’s nothing I enjoy more than catching him on camera.
New Year’s Day Parade, catching proud entries as the past by.
Image 6 and 7 by Tony Mead Having purchased a second hand Olympus camera to allow me to take Macro shots even closer than my existing kit and to use its Photo Stacking ability, Lockdown made me search my garden for any opportunities. During the Spring I found many buds and early grown to photograph. Here are a couple from those I took.
Image 16 by Fiona Adamson “In August we managed to escape to Devon for a butterfly macro workshop. This took place during dusk and dawn to catch these tiny butterflies roosting. It opened my eyes to different techniques you can use in the field literally and metaphorically!”.
Image 23 by Lesley Alsford I have written an article on how I created the bubble pictures that went into my “planet” photograph, it can be found in Club News or follow the link – Potters Bar Photography Society | TABLE TOP PHOTOGRAPHY with Lesley Alsford (pottersbarphotosoc.org.uk)
