An Exhibition of Photographs by members of Colchester Photographic Society is now on at Colchester Library, and will continue until the 29th April 2015

The Exhibition in the Mercury Theatre will now take place in the autumn of 2015

Here are two Galleries, created by Dan Tidswell, relating to the Still Life session at the Loft Photographic Studio.

Click HERE for Gallery 1 (The Tools)

Click HERE for Gallery 2 (The Watch)

Dan added the following relating to the watch gallery:

“A couple of things that I would have done if time had allowed:

1. Taken a tea break so that I could re-evaluate the final image and made tweaks.

2. Polished the watch (this is unforgivable).

3. Focus stacked the entire watch face.

4. Used a polariser to deal with the reflections in the face.

5. Spent a hour or so adjusting the reflectors to deal with that dark area in the top left.

Other than that it's fine for 45 minutes of work.”
