A suggestion made by Denise Searle resulted in an unusual evening at Dawlish and Teignmouth camera club this week.
All the female members created presentations of their personal choice for the 'ladies evening' to demonstrate their photographic skills to the audience of male club members.
Denise introduced the evening and began with her mountain pictures taken both in this country and abroad. This was followed by stunning images taken worldwide by various members, some giving a narrative and others cleverly setting their pictures to music, Madagascar, the Galapagos islands, Cambodia, Spain and Lake Titicaca to name a few.
There were some wonderful shots of flowers and widlife, an audio visual presentation showing the different aspects of water and a demonstration on editing images, altering the colours and converting to black and white.
Coffee was served with homemade cakes and sweets, followed by a quiz,' guess the baby'.
All the ladies put a lot of time and effort and showed great enthusiasm in creating a thoroughly enjoyable and varied evening.
Thanks were given by Byron Carnell.
