Horsham Photographic Society has been fortunate to arrange a renowned guest speaker and we think this maybe of interest to you.
Dave Mason will be talking to us about his photography and how he gets the photos he is looking for. Many of his photographs are for sale and have been in exhibitions. He takes great pleasure in finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, often documenting surreal happenings on city streets.
Most of his photography is shot in London, a city he is proud to call home. London offers a constant changing canvas of textures, people and events. His preference, regarding the type of images produced, is that they have an honesty aabout them, captured in camera with little, if any,post-processing. He regularly takes groups of photographers on walks around the streets of East London.
Paul came on the 4th February 2014 to deliver his talk on wildlife photography, from a personal perspective. He also showed us a range of his work, taken before he joined a photographic club and those taken after he joined one and the way it has altered his approach since. He admitted to making mistakes but sees them as an opportunity to learn. I totally agree with that sentiment.
Paul illustrated the importance of knowing your camera and how to use it appropriately and quickly, otherwise you lose ‘the shot’. He also talked about and showed us the equipment he uses in the field, which mainly means on safari. Specific reference was made to:-
He suggested a range of tips. Many images illustrated the points he raised.
We were also able to see a full range of the images Paul has taken on his travels to exotic places, particularly Africa.
