On Friday 9 October the Club’s guest lecturer is James Kerwin. Writing of his topic ‘Abandoned Architecture’, he says, “I have now built up a large portfolio taken in some of the most striking abandoned structures, relics & ruins in Europe and beyond. My primary focus is capturing rich colour palettes and straight lines in the camera, then utilising modern post-processing techniques to develop each completed image.”
One review of a previous presentation of this talk said, “It was a fascinating talk and a wonderful insight into this genre of photography. He talked about his personal journey, experiences and shared the history and beauty of the abandoned buildings he has photographed. He also explained how these wonderful images were achieved, with a lot of tips and guidance on how/when and with what equipment.” It should be an enthralling evening.
You can see examples of James’ work on his website.
