President's prattle: An Introduction to Landscape Astrophotography

We were treated this evening to a fascinating presentation by Gary Lintern on night photography, including lots on photographing the night sky. Gary is a local professional photographer with qualifications and a wealth of experience in education, so is perfectly positioned to teach the subject. This was clear in his presentation: he showed us a large range of images, covering techniques and ideas on composition – but having said that, Gary concentrates on helping his learners to develop their own ideas into excellent photographs rather than just showing them what he does. The photos he showed were stunning; I particularly liked his astronomical pictures. He certainly kept the audience awake and was, of course, happy to answer several questions which were raised. We were very grateful to him for driving an hour each way to the club on a wet and windy night.
