No themes had been set for the presentations allowing contributors free reign to express themselves in whatever subjects or skills they wished to demonstrate.
Tony started off the show with a montage of images, video and time-lapse sequences representing a typical day at the Newcastle upon Tyne Quayside from sunrise to sunset.
Joe Sheridan followed this with a visual treat of photographs of classic cars and hotrods from a meeting at Gateshead accompanied by a soundtrack of roaring v8 engines.
He also introduced us to his more serious side with beautiful but moving slideshow record of his visit to Auschwitz & Birkenau concentration camps.
Dave Fletcher then showed a film taken during the 2009 DVLA Bike Photographer of the Year competition which took place on the Northumberland coast and which Dave quite deservedly won with some fantastic images of motorcycles framed against some of England’s finest scenery.
On a more topical theme, Dave Brennan demonstrated his street photography with a slideshow record of the return of The Hoppings to Newcastle and his portraiture skills with a sequence of images taken during a wide variety of plays and musicals produced by a number of local theatre groups that he is associated with.
Last but by no means least was Alan Thompson who reminded us of a previous visit to the Tanfield Railway with a clever and amusing mix of photography and animation, a theme he carried on to his second presentation of Newcastle in the grip of winter.
Once again, the evening demonstrated the diversity of interests held by the club members and acted as a showcase for their skills not only of their photographic abilities, but also of their skills in the processing and presentation of their work
