Ever seen a moody colour photograph

LatesfossenIII, Peter Hill

This was the question posed to members of the club last night in an inspiring presentation by Peter Hill. Peter is an acknowledged master in Black and White photography. Using examples of his own work and the work of some of his famous predecessors he convincingly demonstrated not just the advantages of using black and white to create mood but also the importance of visualising photos in black and white from the outset.

The Warmth Of The Winter Sun, Peter Hill

Peter’s presentation was a perfect start to the club’s Black and White ‘challenge’. His presentation will be followed by an excursion which will focus on capturing in B&W, a workshop on processing B&W and a follow up B&W challenge night when members get to ‘show and tell’ and Peter will be available to comment and provide advice.
