    Congratulations Ian what a wonderful Talk a truly Eureka Moment. Thanks for the effort making the talk must have taken days of your time, well presented and easy to listen to and understand. The only thing that remains is to put into practice what you were describing. Of course you will now have to educate the Judges as well!

    Well Done again Wallace

    Yes Ian a really well considered talk took me back to my Art School days, still love drawing and painting, even though from Second year on concentrated on photography and ceramics. Your talk was a good nights refresher for me. Well done Ian.

    Wallace / Meg >>> Thanks ever so much for your kind appreciation. I’m glad you found it interesting and useful – your saying so makes the work involved in putting the talk together very worthwhile!

    I thought Ian’s talk on master photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson was fascinating and well delivered. Ian’s obviously put in a lot of time and effort into preparing for the talk and it’s clear he has passion for the subject. Sometimes you look at a picture and wonder why it works. Now I know. Those of us who witnessed this event now know the secret! Like Wallace says we’ve just got to put it into practise. Thanks Ian.

    Those who came to the talk and use Lightroom may be interested to note a couple of the Lightroom cropping overlays:

    LR4 Crop Tool Overlays

     

    What Lightroom calls ‘Triangles’ and ‘Triangles 2’ are the two major diagonals and their reciprocals – the lines from the other corners that cross the major diagonals at right angles.  (In Lightroom’s crop tool overlays, the reciprocals stop where they meet the diagonal, rather than continuing to the edge of the frame. But they’re better than nothing, and – as you may now guess – I use them a lot!)

    What Lightroom calls ‘Diagonal Lines’ are the diagonals of the left and right rebated squares.

    A very interesting evening Ian.  Like you said I am not sure that all the images would have done well within club photographic competitions but the composition of them all was fascinating as was the insight into the mind of the photographer.  Loved the accent by the way 😉

    You missed a very informative talk Paul. Hope you all had a lovely holiday.
