Tuesday 12 January 2016 - Chris Palmer 'The Prints and the Paper'

We had a good turnout for this presentation by Chris Palmer entitled 'The Prints and the Paper' and we weren't disappointed.  Chris showed us prints featuring a variety of topics from locations near and far.  He described how he arrived at the final image from camera craft, through processing and finally printing.

It was a thoroughly entertaining and informative evening and I'm sure many of us are still mulling over subtleties of Chris's approach to landscape and other genres of photography.  All in all, another inspiring evening.
