Herne Bay Photographic Club

The club left the confines of its usual meeting place and went out into the field for a practical evening of light painting. This is a technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or to create shapes with the light. Shutter speeds are usually between 11 to 30 seconds. Split into two contingents, one group went to Reculver, the other found a nice dark spot in front of the beach huts in Herne Bay, where they set their cameras up on tripods pointing out to sea. Tuition on settings was given to all who needed help. Club member Peter Holliday said:

“I for one have been meaning to try this skill for some time and now have been given an insight to it.”

Despite getting soaking wet when the heavens opened, everyone had a great evening, with more than one comedy moment. Everyone met up again at the Beacon Centre for a well-deserved cuppa and biscuits to dry off and compare results. This week the club ran the second half of the landscape/open competition, this time for digital images. There was a successful exhibition entitled It’s in the BAG at the Bay Art Gallery, William Street from November 20-23. The club meets on a Tuesday at the Beacon Centre, Sea Street, 8pm-10pm (doors open at 7.45pm). Entrance is £2, which includes tea and biscuits.
