28 th June ‘Power and Poise’ was the title of Tuesday evening’s meeting, this was a lecture by our guest Steve Proctor DPAGB BPE5* a member of both Chorley and Ribblesdale camera clubs. After discussing his early interest in photography up to the present day, Steve gave us details of the various cameras and lenses which he has used for his many superb images. Steve then showed us images from his portfolio which covered numerous subjects including some exceptional historical and costume images followed by macro and wildlife shots. The main subject ‘Power and Poise’ itself was up next, this covered mainly sporting and dance images. ‘Power’ gave us some well captured athletic shots with competitors in, high jump, long jump, pole vaulting and hurdles it was during this section that Steve showed us the best focusing settings he used to capture fast moving athletes. ‘Poise’ came next with emphasis on the grace, poise, elegance and balance of the dancers as they created many dynamic shapes. More images of artistic models came next followed by tennis, cricket and local football shots. Steve ended his excellent lecture by discussing the merits of mirrorless cameras, his own being a Canon R5. A.F.
