Di with one of her still life studies (No, that's Colin at the end)
On Wednesday evening Dawlish and Teignmouth camera club was visited by Di Wilkins, LRPS, a member of Exeter camera club and Royal Photographic Society regional committee member.
Starting with her LRPS panel Di then went on to show some wonderful pictures taken on her many travels, wildlife in Botswana, where she encountered lions , giraffe, elephants and hyenas to name a few.
Travelling extensively through the United States members saw some unusual images of route 66, Marlborough Point and Florida's everglades, complete with alligators, spoonbills and ospreys.
A diverse selection of work was shown, amazing pictures of models taken against a backdrop of graffiti, still life studies of fruit and vegetables, and close ups of flowers, many taken in her own studio. The evening closed with two audio visual presentations, the first taken at a gathering of tattoo artists showing them at work, and the second a mix of movie and still images taken on a safari in Botswana and all set to music.
