Photography taken to a next level by camera club

The Digi-cam technology has unloosened the image, letting it loose from the bonds of darkrooms and photo albums, and into a new world with bright digital screen. Craig Farrish told that everyone is taking photographs but a lot of photography is going towards selfies, the idea of this camera club is to promote photography as an art.
It was around three months ago that Farrish started Amherst Camera Club. They meet just one time in a month at the Cumberland North Academy. At a recent meeting, the group concentrated on nature photography, with the group sharing snaps of flowers, trees, birds as well as other wildlife they had taken.
Farrish told that clicking a magnificent image does not require the best camera equipment. You could capture stunning images with a basic point and shoot shooter. Back in August, Farrish moved to Amherst from Kingston with his family.
He said that he used to be a member to a camera club located in Kingston. It is a great way to meet people with same interests and it is a great scope to re-kindle his creative side. The photographic theme of last month was nature and the theme for this month is sports photography.
Around ten people are currently active in this club, but Farrish expects that this number would go up very soon. People would take snaps at sporting events, and after that they would come out and show their photos to the group. He would prefer people to come out and develop an appreciation for photography.

Kent photographer’s snap in wildlife photography display

Snaps showcasing the stunning beauty of British wildlife is now on display at the Whitstable Museum and Gallery. The exhibit, of selected snaps from British Wildlife Photography Awards that includes a snap from Kent snapper Robert Canis, who has earlier won Royal Photographic Society Gold Medal and several other commendations.

Mr Canis, who is from Sittingbourne, gave a snap of a saffron drop bonnet mushroom for the contest and he won in Botanical Britain category. According to him, one does not need any special equipment to get a great snap.

He told that it is just about being in the right place at the right time. and putting the time in. One could give someone the best equipment but if they are not prepared to get up early or wait out in the rain they would not get a good snap. He stated that Oare marshes, near Faversham, is one of his favorite place to take snaps of animals or birds.

Mr Canis added that he do not think that a whole lot of people say that British wildlife is one the hardest in the world to photograph. If one goes to Africa or Antarctica, they stroll among the animals so it is hard not to get a good shot. But in UK, the wildlife has been persecuted for very long they are extra shy and wary. It is really difficult to get a good snap.

The snaps first went on display in London’s Mall Gallery, where the exhibit was started by television presenter and naturalist Chris Packham who told that these magnificent snaps by many photographers highlight the breadth, beauty and diversity of their precious wildlife and the need to protect their habitats.
