Herne Bay Photographic Club

THE club had a very interesting practical evening learning the art of bokeh — that is the aesthetic quality of a blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Instruction was given by club chair Di Long, who began with a short presentation on how Bokeh is created, and provided a range of images that showed how the effect could be put into practice in a variety of settings. She then gave a practical demonstration with fairy lights and a volunteer from the audience. Three areas had been set up in various places, and after the demo, members had the opportunity to put the instruction into practice. The club is now taking a well-deserved break until the New Year returning on Tuesday, January 6, for a sociable evening of chat and an opportunity to bring in images for other members to critique. The following week (January 13) is a print competition with the theme of Mono, which will be judged by Paul Dunmall. The club meets on a Tuesday evening at the Beacon Centre, Sea Street, 8 to 10pm (doors open at 7.45pm). Entrance is £2, which includes tea and biscuits.
